Dorothy Vevea

March 25, 1930 – January 15, 2021

Vevea, Dorothy Mae (Ranallo) age 90, of Rogers, Minnesota passed away peacefully on January 15th at Maple Grove Hospital, Maple Grove, MN surrounded by her loving children.

She was a generous, tenderhearted woman whose character was built on honesty, integrity, and unconditional love. Dorothy had a deep abiding faith in God. She was without a doubt the family prayer warrior and prayed the Catholic rosary daily. Dorothy was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who always put her family first. Anyone who knows Dorothy would agree that she had an infectious laugh and loved to have loads of fun and laughter (even at her own expense).

Dorothy is survived by her six devoted children, Nicholas Vevea (Christine) of Rogers, Margaret Callander (Donald) of Maple Grove, Elizabeth Specht (Edwin) of Otsego, Anthony Vevea of Buckeye, Arizona, Christopher Vevea of Otsego, Jodi Reding (David) of Maple Grove; 14 grandchildren; 21 (plus 2 future) great grandchildren; many relatives and an abundance of friends who loved her dearly. Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband Charles Vevea, parents, four brothers, three sisters, and grandson, Benjamin Reding.
