ADRIAN - Dorotha B. McCormick Hahn, 92, a volunteer receptionist at the Bixby Medical Center here and former vice president of Adrian State Bank, died Wednesday of Alzheimer's disease in the medical center.
"I could always talk to her, and she would understand me," Ms. McCormick Hahn's son, Richard McCormick, said.
Ms. McCormick Hahn graduated from Blissfield High School and took college classes in accounting and management. She began her banking career at the former Clayton Bank in Clayton, Mich., where she was a bookkeeper from 1943 to 1953, then went to work for Adrian State Bank. She rose through the ranks to become the bank's vice president and held that position for several years, until she retired in 1976, Mr. McCormick said.
In her retirement, she worked part time as a bookkeeper for Adrian State Bank and was a member of the medical center's auxiliary, most often as a volunteer receptionist. She was a member of Zion United Brethren Church in Ogden Township.
Surviving are her son, Richard McCormick; daughter, Ida McCormick-Rouget; brothers, Dale Porter and Dean Porter; sister, Marjorie Beebe; three grandchildren; four great-grandchildren, and two great-great-granddaughters.
Services will be at 1 p.m. today in the Anderson Funeral Home here. The family requests tributes to the Hospice of Lenawee or the American Cancer Society.
