While I only met Dorothy Lee once, I knew her for many years by stellar reputation and through mutual friends. Her contributions to the antiques, ceramics and glass fields were monumental and should be respected and emulated by others. She lived a good, long life and I hope her family can take comfort in knowing she was a valuable member of society much to be admired.

I am so sad to hear this. I worked for Dorothy-Lee for two summers, cooking and baking one summer, working at her gallery the next. She was simply lovely: Not only intelligent and savvy, but also eminently patient and kind. Her daughter Lyra and I became good friends, and those magical summers on the slopes of Douglas Hill, open to the blue haze of the White Mountains in July, will always fill my heart with affection and happy nostalgia.

I wandered into Dorothy's store in my 20's knowing nothing about glass. She gave me a lovely introduction, walking me around and telling me about the glass that interested me. I went back to ask some questions about my own glass a couple years later and she sat me down in her library to research it on my own. I would never have started a life time hobby of glass collecting had it not been for her enthusiasm AND her kindness to me. What a gift she gave me, an unkempt hippie who knew nothing and who she probably saw as uncouth as well.
