A few years ago, I contacted Mrs. Roark to order a copy of her book for my father, who grew up in Sagamore. Dad was not a fan of gifts, but he routinely read excerpts from that book for years to come. I enjoyed my brief correspondence with her and found her to be charming, witty and very sharp. I'm so sorry to hear of her passing. She was a true gem.

I am from Dayton PA and would have dinner and spend time with Dorothy when she would come to PA to visit. Was so sorry to find out that she had passed away. We will cherish memories and fun times with her. Know we are thinking of you and express our sincere sympathies to your family.

Dorothy was such a sweet lady. I met her years ago. She also told the best storys about her life. She even gave me one of her baseball cards. I wish i knew where I put that card. She is up in heaven playing ball like she did when she was younger having a great time. Rest in piece Dottie!

I didn't know Dorothy at all, but she was a trailblazer for women and I am grateful. I had no idea we had such a famous lady in our town and it's my regret that I didn't meet her. Praying that precious memories fill the hole in her family's hearts.

In 1972 my wife and I met Dorothy when we purchased a home with her help. We will miss her unique charm and will always miss her. She was a wonderful person. May you rest in peace in a special place in God's Home. Butch & Linda Beckham

There a few people in our life who fulfill us, are there for us always, and someone we can share everything and anything with. Aunt Dorothy was one of those people for me, and I will miss those experiences immensely. Her caring spirit lifted me many times, as well as the many interesting stories and adventures she shared with those she loved. My dear aunt will be missed, but I know she is enjoying heaven and likely entertaining others in her unique and loving fashion as usual. I am better for having known her.

I will dearly miss the many great times we enjoyed over many years, especially the wonderful stories of baseball life, and my aunt's intriguing time growing up in western Pennsylvania during a very tough era. She was the life of the party as it is said. Her baseball skills were capable enough that Branch Rickey, general manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, wanted her on the team during her career. The baseball commissioner proclaimed, I was told, "there will be no women in major league baseball," ending that request. That is just the tip of the iceberg of her fascinating life. R.I.P. for all you gave us.
