Dorothy Renee Ludy, 72, of Chippewa Falls, formerly of Turtle Lake, passed away on January 2, 2022 at the Chippewa Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation in Chippewa Falls, WI with family by her side after battling a chronic illness.  She was born March 24, 1949, in Rice Lake, WI to William and Leonore (Demers) Roff.  Dorothy grew up in Almena and graduated from Barron High School in 1967.

Dorothy was a very devoted mother, grandmother, and sister.

She especially cherished the time she got to spend with her two granddaughters and her 8 siblings and their families.
