Dorothy M. Armbrust passed away in her Chandler, Arizona residence on September 23, 2020 at the age of 96, surrounded by her two loving sons. She was born in Buellville, located in the town of Pompey, New York, on September 13, 1924. She was the daughter of Charles and Gladys Bishop. She was the youngest of 4 children having three older brothers Don, Bud, and Richard Bishop, all of whom preceded her in death.

Dorothy graduated from Manlius High School in 1942 and then pursued secretarial training at a school in Syracuse, New York. Dorothy married Curtis K. Armbrust in 1950. She is survived by her two sons, Jim Armbrust (Debbie deceased) and Ron Armbrust (Martha); grandsons Russ Armbrust (Eryn), Tim Armbrust (Brandy) and John Armbrust (Elena); and seven great-grandchildren.

Dorothy began her work career at Niagara Mohawk Power Company in Syracuse, New York. She then took employment with Precision Castings Company (Accurate Die Casting) in Fayetteville, New York as a secretary. Late in her work career she was employed by Dey Brothers store in Dewitt, New York. Dorothy resided in her Fayetteville home 64 years until 2018 when health issues resulted in her relocation to Arizona to be close to her two sons.

She enjoyed gardening, traveling, and routinely socializing with her friends. That often included playing cards. She especially enjoyed traveling with her friends to many destinations in her beloved New York State.
Dorothy was also preceded in death by her husband Curtis K. Armbrust in 1990, and her daughter-in-law, Debbie Armbrust (Jim) in 2017.

A private celebration of life family gathering is being held in Mesa, Arizona on Friday, October 2, 2020.

Funeral services will be conducted on Monday, October 5, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. (EST), at Eaton-Tubbs Fayetteville Chapel, 7191 E. Genesee St., Fayetteville, New York. Burial will be in the Fayetteville Cemetery.

I am sorry I cannot attend the funeral today, but I wanted to give my best and my love to Dorothy's family. I did not know her, but have been friends with Ronnie for many years, and his love for his Mom was never a question. May she rest in peace, knowing that her sons deeply loved her and wanted to be with her in her last years. If there wasn't a pandemic, I would be there in person, but for now, this is all I can offer. Much love to you all and hope to see you when things get better.

Sending so much love, Dorothy. We were neighbors who became good friends and I’ll always cherish our card games and especially our lunches and dinners out at various restaurants. Your friendship, humor and great conversation was one of the highlights of living in our neighborhood. ❤️💞
