Dorothy grew up in New York with a close family before moving with her husband, William Spalding, to Darien. She later settled in Rowayton, on Belle Island and Pine Point, for nearly forty years, with many summers shared with extended family in a beach house in Milford.
She attended Skidmore College and, while raising her three children, worked as a registered nurse at Stamford Hospital.
