Dorothy Agnes Schindler, 98, of Hollywood, MD passed away on December 10, 2018 at Genesis Healthcare in Waldorf, MD. She was born on March 12, 1920 in Dameron, MD to the late Clarence M. Aud and Estelle Agnes Combs Aud.
Dorothy was a lifelong resident of St. Mary's County. She was born and raised on her family farm; a farm girl from the start who loved being outside, working her family's land, and taking care of the animals. Together with her husband, William, they purchased their own farm, which Dorothy tended to for most of her life. She especially enjoyed spending time in her garden. Dorothy was devoted to the Catholic faith and attended Mass every Sunday. She was a great mother raising her four children, as well as a kind, nurturing grandmother to her six grandchildren. She truly enjoyed spending time with her family and taking care of everyone.
Dorothy is survived by her children, William Schindler of Hollywood, MD and Patti Thiel (John) of Waldorf, MD; her brother, John Aud of Park Hall, MD; six grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and many extended family and friends.
