They had two children, a daughter Rita (David) Ystebo, and a son, James "JP" Burrows. Dorothy was known for her great cooking, caramel rolls and coffee parties. After Jim's death, Dorothy moved to Fargo, N.D., for a time before moving to Roundup, Mont., where she met the second love of her life, Florin Soennichsen, and has lived there for the last 23 years. Florin has two sons, David and Florin, Jr. (Audra). The real loves of her life were her two grandsons, David "DJ" (Anna) and Derek (Ashley). She never missed a day without talking to one of them.
