She was born August 1, 1934 to Max and Johanna (Bluma) Prondzinski in Custer.
Dorothy attended Sacred Heart Grade School and P.J. Jacobs High School. After graduating in 1952, she worked at Normington’s Laundry. On November 23, 1963, Dorothy married Chester Perzewski at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Polonia. Together they farmed for the rest of their lives.
Dorothy and Chester were later joined by their son, Conrad. Dorothy liked farming and was always proud of her animals. She had a riding horse as a teenager (Rusty) and really enjoyed riding the farm lanes and fields. She also loved her farm cats and dogs. Dorothy always had beautiful flower gardens and large vegetable gardens. She was always sharing with neighbors and relatives. Dorothy was a long-time member of the Sacred Heart Rosary Society.
Survivors include her husband of almost 56 years, Chester and her son Conrad Perzewski both of Custer. She is also survived by a sister-in-law Theresa Prondzinski and a number of nieces and nephews.
Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents; an infant sister Mary; her sister Eleanor Laska and brother-in-law Edwin; and her brother Alfred Prondzinski.
