Dorothy A. Harris (Fox, Dufour) passed away after a brief illness on Sunday, August 25, 2019 in Ebeid Hospice Residence at the age of 56. She was born July, 28,1963 in Temperance, Michigan to Glenn and Janet (Warner) Fox and attended Bedford High School. She loved all of her children, Kristy (Dufour) Barton, Jennelle Schardt, and Johnny Michael Dean II, including step-children Echo (Harris) Hodgden, Tyler Harris Jr., Kendra (Harris) Cole, and Roxanne (Dean) Chester; plus a long list of friends that the kids brought home that called her Mom. She always wanted to be at the beach and especially under the palm trees. No one believed that she was married under the palm trees in Toledo, Ohio (JC Penney Courtyard, Franklin Park Mall). There was not a room in her house that did not have a lion or tiger in it and she never could go anywhere without her spoiled rotten dog Deuce.

She is survived by the love of her life, Johnny M. (Mike) Dean, daughters Kristy (Leon), Jennelle, step-children Echo (Brad), Tyler (Rachel), Kendra (Nicholas), and Roxanne (Jemarr).
