Dorothy Marie Fiddelke, 80, of Iowa Falls, Iowa, formerly of Manchester, Iowa, passed away on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, at Mercy One Medical Center in Waterloo. She was born on August 21, 1942, in Amherst, Nebraska, the daughter of Frank and Marie (Kreutzer) Fisher. Dorothy was raised and educated in Amherst, and was a 1960 graduate of Amherst High School.
On April 22, 1962, Dorothy was united in marriage to Norman Fiddelke at Zion Lutheran Church in Kearney, Nebraska. Five children were born to this union. Dorothy was a loving mom and housewife. The family lived in Manchester for 20 years until moving to Iowa Falls in 1996. Dorothy worked as a special needs associate.
Dorothy was a dedicated mother who never missed any of her children’s events. She enjoyed traveling with Norman. Dorothy liked quilting, playing board games, and cards. Above all else, Dorothy loved her family and cherished spending time with them. Dorothy’s giving nature continued after her death with her organ donation through the Iowa Donor Network.
