Meet Dorothy & Betty

Dorothy Davis and Betty Frederick first met at St. Mary’s School in New Britain, and have been best friends since the second grade.  They were bridesmaids in each other’s weddings, and have seen each other’s families grow to include children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren.  Through this time, they have been there for each other through thick and thin, supported each other as they have tackled life’s many challenges, and have experienced so much of what life has to offer.  Read more
