Dorothy Rogers Scrivener, 86, of Sayre Health Care Center [PA] formerly of Waverly, NY, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 25, 2020. In 1999, Dorothy had a major health set back that left her unable to speak and her right side paralyzed, but she fought the bravest, most courageous battle with LIFE these past 20 years. She was one strong, incredible lady who will be very missed by her family and friends.

Am sorry wasn't able to stay in contact with everyone. My mom is Genny think everyone called her that. We used to visit when I was younger. Not sure if we ever visited after I was hit by car. I have very little memories cause of my abuse of alcohol and drugs. I tried calling after uncle Dan past on to learn that Aunt Dot had a stroke and wasn't able to speak on the phone. Aunt Vicky sent me this link to leave a message and prayers to everyone. Please forgive me for my failure to visit everyone. Only time I actually visit any one was when my mom was still alive. Everyone called me jimmy or jim. Am the son of Geniveve L. O'Connor, Grandma is her mother.  She'd live in Sayra PA. We used to take a train or drive to see mom's sisters and grandma. Thought I leave a message and my prayers to everyone. I still live in Hornell NY 19 E. Wash. St. 14843. Or contact me
