Dottie was born in Baltimore, MD to Robert and Agnes (Lurz) Wagner. She lived in Columbia, Maryland and worked at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church until retiring in 2019. Dottie not only worked at the church for many years but she served on the board of Winterhaven, volunteered at the Elizabeth House, and she chaired the fellowship ministry. Dottie and her daughter, Erika, also operated a partnership called Tea At The Beach Club. She enjoyed serving and feeding others.


She is survived by her husband Lyle “Wes” Westrom, her daughter Erika Westrom, her sister-in-law Lynn Caper and the families of her niece and two nephews; Lea and Eddie Tiche, Bobby and Sally Carper, and Brian and Robin Carper. She is also survived by the families of her four step children; Deyonne and Bill Eckles, Mark and Jan Westrom, Sandi and Robert Magner, and Paul and Leigh Westrom. Dottie was preceded in death by her parents, her step mother Catherine Wagner and her brother Larry Caper.
