Vale Dorothy Houghton MBE

1.1.1920 - 2.1.2017 Died peacefully at Ti Tree Lodge on Jan. 2, 2017.


Dorothy joined Rotary, indirectly in 1961, as a Rotary Anne with the formation of her husband’s club (Sorrento). Then more formally when Rotary opened its doors to female members, as a member of the Rotary Club of Rye.


Dorothy was the first female member on the Mornington Peninsula and the first female in our Rotary district. She was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship in 1986 and the Sapphire Pin more recently. In 1991 the Rotary Club of Rye proposed Dorothy for the Victorian of the year, for Community Service, which culminated with her being one of six who received a Commendation from the Premier.

 

Dorothy was very proud of her Rotarian heritage.
