Dorothy Ann Huseby was born January 9, 1947, to Burton and Orleen (Anderson) Weidemann in Redwood Falls, Minnesota. She was baptized and confirmed at First Lutheran Church in Belview and graduated from Belview High School in 1964. On January 30, 1965, she married Harold Huseby at First Lutheran Church.

After marriage, Dorothy became a member of Rock Dell Lutheran Church where she taught Sunday School, directed the Rock Dell Centennial church choir, and served as a member and officer of the Ladies Aid.

Dorothy worked for over 30 years in court administration, first in Redwood County and then later in Yellow Medicine County, retiring in 2009. Appointed by Governor Perpich in 1983, Dorothy served on the Minnesota Hazardous Waste Management Board. Between 1974 and 1987, Dorothy stayed home to raise her children and help Harold on the farm. Her kindness, diligence, and positive nature made everything better.

Dorothy and Harold enjoyed traveling and took many vacations across the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. They also explored several countries throughout Europe over the years. Most of all, Dorothy loved spending time with her husband, her children and their spouses, and her grandchildren at their lake home, making everyone feel special and loved.

In 2011, Dorothy and Harold retired from farming and moved to Victoria to be closer to family. Dorothy loved that this provided more regular opportunities to see her children and grandchildren.
