Dorothy Marie Louise Gruenberg was born on August 22, 1913 in Nordick Township, near Kent, MN, the first of eleven children born to Herman and Clara (Mittendorf) Gruenberg. She grew up on the home farm and attended country school. At her cousin's wedding in Lidgerwood, ND, she met Erhart Marohl. Dorothy and Erhart were united in marriage on October 18, 1934 at Christ Lutheran Church in rural Wolverton, MN. The couple farmed near Lidgerwood, ND for ten years.
Erhart preceded her in death on January 9, 1960. Shortly after he died Dorothy began cleaning at the Vertin Furniture Store, later known as Caspers Furniture in Wahpeton, ND. She cleaned and worked for them in the mornings for the next nineteen years. In the afternoons Dorothy cleaned for other people around town, and some evenings cleaned at NDSCS.
