(NEE Quinn) died peacefully on May 20th at the age of 94. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband Paul Warga and survived by her children Caren (Dennis) Schimmel, Kirk (Jill) Warga and Kelly Henricks. She is also survived by four grandchildren (Jennifer, Kim, Christopher and Matthew) and four great grandchildren (Oliver, Elsie, Henry and Cami). Together Dorothy and Paul enjoyed 60+ years together as true partners. They both worked at the Mathisson Advertising agency from the late 1940s until the early 1970s. Paul was Vice-President of the agency and Dorothy the Executive Assistant to the President. They moved from Wauwatosa to North Lake in 1971 and started many businesses of their own, including The Stew House restaurant at Mayfair and a real estate agency. Most of their time from the early 1970s through the early 2000s was spent working together in the administration of the Vince Lombardi Golf Tournament at North Hills. They spent tens of thousands of hours helping this event become the success that it is today. Dorothy and Paul moved to their Pewaukee condo in 2001. She survived Paul by about 14 years, during which time she enjoyed her family, her flowers and she became a member of the choir at St. Anthony's in Pewaukee. She loved watching sports, especially the Packers and any golf. Those who met Dorothy were always impressed by her youthful energy and meticulous appearance. A Memorial Service for Dorothy will be held at St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Pewaukee, Wisconsin on Friday, May 25th. Visitation will be from 9-11 AM with a mass to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to The Zilber Hospice in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin are appreciated.
