Dorothy "Dotti" Sauer, 93, stopped making new memories Friday, July 27, 2018. Born in Richmond, IN, the daughter of the late Albert Wesley and Georgianna (Doyle) Leavell, Dotti was valedictorian of her 1942 class of Poling High School. Ever ambitious, she ventured to Fort Wayne and attended International Business College. She worked in the accounting departments at Essex Wire and Magnavox before devoting her time to raising her two remarkable children. She also modeled locally into her later years. She delighted in investing in the stock market and keeping up daily with her varied investments. She was an avid golfer, belonging to Orchard Ridge and Pine Valley Country Clubs. She was a member of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church. Surviving are her sisters, Edith Brown of Bellingham, WA and Cletabell Koetje of Portland, IN; and several nieces and nephews. Dotti was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years Robert E. Sauer; daughter, Teresa "Teri" M. Sauer; son, Robert "Bobby" E Sauer, Jr.; brother, William "Buddy" A Leavell; and sisters, Mildred "Mid" Roberts, Alice Gates, and Betty Simpson.
