Dorothy Irene Wickizer was born Oct. 29, 1927, in Iowa City, daughter of George and Rose (Greazel) Wickizer. She attended school in Iowa City and on Aug. 19, 1949, married Kenneth Albrecht at the Little Brown Church in Nashua. She worked many years as a bookkeeper for Metro Pavers and loved all that went with bookkeeping. She was a hard and dedicated worker but also enjoyed gardening, art and painting on occasion. She also enjoyed time spent with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandson, Xander. She was also a collector of pewter and took pride in her collection. For many years, when Iowa got cold, Dorothy and Ken could be found in Florida at their home in Key Colony Beach.
Her family includes her son, Craig Albrecht and his wife, Chris of North Liberty; grandchildren, Kate Conroy and her husband, David, Max Albrecht and Adam Desterhaft; great-grandson, Xander Conroy; and nieces Kathy Gingerich and her husband, Phil and Chris Fridley and her husband, Mike.
