years, she met Paul T. Callaway, also a student, whom she would marry in

Dorothy taught in the Austin Public Schools and also was a librarian. Her
main hobby and love was playing her Hammond organ, especially songs from
her early childhood and young adult days. She was also a loyal member of
the University United Methodist Church (48 years) and was an active participant
in the UMC Fellowship Forum. Dorothy was also a very proud and loyal member
of the American Association of University Women (AAUW).
Dorothy appreciated the love and kind attention from the staff and residents of Highland Hills Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center of Austin, where she resided. Dorothy Callaway loved her family and was unfailing in her devotion and support. She was sweet and kind, always generous, compassionate, and understanding. Her family and friends will surely miss her.
