Dorothy Lorraine (Pryor) Hein was born August 13, 1919, to Harry and E. Irene (Cruise) Pryor on a farm southeast of Dunlap, Iowa.

Dorothy married Ralph Hein on March 16, 1938, at the Broadway United Methodist Church Parsonage in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The couple farmed for three years southwest of town and then in 1941 they purchased the Hein family farm south of Dunlap. This farm belonged to Ralph's grandfather and is a century farm.

Dorothy was a member of the United Methodist Church in Dunlap since 1948, the Stitch and Chat Club, and a Canasta card club. She enjoyed bowling, crocheting, gardening and field work. She also enjoyed reading and baking cookies. Most importantly she loved her family.
