She was born on September 13, 1931 in Kaukauna, the daughter of the late William and Ellen (Dietzler) Baumgarten. On May 1, 1950, she married Nicholas Milbach at St. Mary Catholic Church, Kaukauna. She was a faithful member, taught CCD and was a Eucharistic minister at St. Katharine Drexel. Dorothy volunteered as a librarian at St. Mary School. Nicholas and Dorothy enjoyed camping, scouting and were very supportive of their children. Their home was always open for those in need.
