Scottsdale, AZ – Dorothy Marion Warchot, 88, of Scottsdale, AZ passed away Monday, January 17, 2022 with her family by her side. Born to Joseph and Myrtle Patton on January 8, 1934, she grew up in Denver. Marion married Paul Warchot, her high school sweetheart, in 1954 and they had five children.
Marion was kind, compassionate and always fair, which is essential in raising five children. She had a special bond with animals, becoming the family’s favorite pet. Marion was a matriarch, tending to everyone in their time of need with dignity and grace. She was a daughter, a policeman’s wife, a mother, a grandmother, a great-grandmother, a friend, a pen pal, and more. Marion has provided unwavering support to so many of us. Those who were lucky enough to know her will remember her resilience, her independence, her generosity, her laughter and her light.
Marion is predeceased by her husband Paul and her son Mike. She is survived by her daughter Lisa, her sons David (Jude), Rick and Kevin, her grandchildren Chris, Andrew, Taylor and Emily and her great-grandchildren.
A Memorial Mass will be held at 10 a.m. on Friday, January 28, 2022 at St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Arizona Humane Society.
