Dorothy Mae Takes was born on March 21, 1926 in Cascade, Iowa, a daughter of Frank M. and Teresa E. (Klinkner) Takes.  During the tail end of World War II Dottie worked for the F.B.I. in Washington, D.C. She was united in marriage to Charles “Bun” Rodenburg on July 21, 1950.  He preceded her in death on May 19, 2018 after almost 68 years of marriage.

 

Dorothy was a woman deeply devoted to her faith.  She was a longtime member of Holy Family Catholic Church and more recently had attended Mass at St. Paul the Apostle.  She also was deeply involved in Life in the Spirit, Christian Experience Weekends, and Healing Masses.

 

Dottie was very creative, she mastered knitting, crocheting, and created beautiful wood jewelry. She was a perfectionist to the max and very competitive as well, enjoying playing cards, mostly for money, and never letting you win!

 

Survivors include her children: Cyndi (Craig) Jarvis, Eldridge, and Scott (Angie) Rodenburg, Bettendorf, grandchildren: Patrick (Sara) Greenlee, Shawna Lange, Travis (Julie), Tyler (Ashlee Finch), Tucker, and Hailey (Sean Barnett) Rodenburg; and great-grandchildren, Elle, Kai, Nick, Becca, Mae, Gabe, Anna, Katie, Noah, Josiah, Emmie, Hannah, Emily, Maddie, Aubrey, Kira, Gabriel, Easton, and Riley.

 

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by parents and siblings: Ervin Takes, Virginia Takes, Bonneta Otten, and Paul Takes.

 

The Rodenburg family would like to thank the nurses and staff on the 5th Floor at Genesis East and at Clarissa C. Cook Hospice House for the loving and compassionate care shared with Dottie.
