Dorothy Ann Jacob

- Birth: Dorothy Ann Jacob was born on October 8, 1951 in Appleton, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
- Marriage: She was married on July 6, 1991.
- Death: She died on February 11, 2013, at age 61, in Sedona, Arizona.
- Note: Dorothy Ann (Dotti) Jacob Krieger, 61, died peacefully in her home in Sedona, Arizona, on February 11, 2013, surrounded by family. Dotti was born October 8, 1951, in Appleton, Wisconsin. She was the fifth child of Dorothy and Stephen Jacob.
Dotti grew up in Neenah, Wisconsin. Her older brother Stephen and his wife, Madella underwrote a student exchange to Europe, which focused on art. She later earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Dominican College in Racine. She earned her masters degree from UW-Whitewater in Adult Vocational Guidance. Her postgraduate work focused on personnel administration, law and general management.
Her career included work as a professional illustrator, a probation and parole officer, a test research consultant trainer and as a job service counselor. For most of her career, Dotti served with distinction as Human Resources Director for the Wisconsin State Historical Society. Recognized for her negotiation skills, she was annually 'loaned' to the state of Wisconsin to help negotiate statewide professional contracts.
The culmination of Dotti's career came with her appointment as the Accessibility Coordinator for the Department of Natural Resources of Wisconsin. In that position she felt she accomplished some of her most rewarding projects, including the planning and overseeing the building of accessible cabins in the Wisconsin State Parks of High Cliff and Kohler Andrae. She also helped design and create accessible nature paths, hiking trails and fishing piers. Her belief was that we are all just a heartbeat away from needing assistance to enjoy the outdoors.
Dotti's sage wisdom and outlook on life, learned over a lifetime of surgical procedures in childhood and six major cancer battles as an adult, were shared with many. Although her professional career was exemplary and an inspiration to other women, it was her love of people and being able to serve others that she considered her life's work.
On July 6, 1991, Dotti married William (Bill) Krieger to begin a marriage of best friends. Dotti and Bill created the Cambridge House Bed and Breakfast in Cambridge, Wisconsin. In retirement, Dotti and Bill spent summers on Washington Island at "Hope Cottage" and winters in the artist community of Sedona, Arizona.
She set a modest goal of having at least one piece of art accepted into a juried art show in Sedona. She eventually had ten pieces juried into several shows and took five first place awards. Just before she died, some of her most recent work was juried into the Sedona Art Center Members' Show. Those two pieces were shown posthumously. Dotti either sold or gave away almost every piece of art she created.
Dotti is survived by her husband, Bill; by her ever-supportive sisters-in-law, Madella and Sandy; by a brother and two sisters and by many nieces and nephews of three generations. Bill's two sons, their wives and children, and his daughter, each of whom welcomed, loved and respected Dotti as a matriarch of their family, also survive her. Dotti was preceded in death by her parents, her older brother and a niece.
A service to joyfully celebrate Dotti Jacob Krieger's life in story, song and prayer will be held at the Willerup United Methodist Church in Cambridge, Wisconsin, on Saturday, March 23, 2013, beginning at 10 a.m. for visitation in Heritage Hall. The service will begin at 11:30 a.m. with a light luncheon served back in Heritage Hall at 1 p.m.
Dotti's favored charity is Operation Smile, an organization dedicated to changing the lives of children in third world countries who were born with cleft lips and palates, the very kind of suffering she endured as a newborn and dealt with her whole life. Gifts can be given to Operation Smile in the name of someone you love. Their contact information is: www.operationsmile.org.
