On June 21, 2022 Dorothy Sullivan Rumpf of Port Richey, FL peacefully joined her predeceased loved ones; husband Donald Rumpf, brother Ezekiel, and parents Denis E. and Dorothy T. Sullivan in her Lord’s Kingdom of Heaven. She was 79. Her final wishes will be carried out by Cremations of Greater Tampa Bay and her close family members during a private casting ceremony. Dorothy leaves behind to cherish her memory, sons Robert T. Leggiere (Jennifer) and Gary C. Leggiere, daughters Terri (Leggiere) Chapman (Chris) and Laura (Leggiere) Gibson (Keith), six beloved grandchildren; Matthew and Michael Chapman, Nicholas and Alexis Ludy, Celina Leggiere Smith (Connor) and Andrew Leggiere, in addition to many relatives and friends in Florida and New York State. Born and raised in Mount Vernon, New York, Dorothy became a busy, caring, and devoted homemaker and mother of four at a young age. After relocating to Pasco County Florida in 1982, she soon found a way to repurpose her inclination toward caring for others by entering a career assisting qualified retired adults and individuals with disabilities in securing financial aid and benefits. A lifelong avid reader and voracious knowledge seeker, Dorothy greatly valued formal education, research science, and all other forms of higher learning. Following her beloved father’s long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease she developed a very special place in her heart for those suffering with all forms of incurable brain disorder. Dorothy would be honored to be remembered by friends and family through donations made in her name to the neuroscientific research pursuits of The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation at: www.bbrfoundation.org
