Dorothea "Dot" Jane Rigg (nee Trimble), age 92, of Vandalia, MO passed away Friday, January 12, 2024, peacefully at Hannibal Regional Hospital.

Dot worked for Deluxe Checks in St. Louis for 23 years before retiring and moving to Vandalia, MO, where she continued to work until she was in her late 80's at Tri-County Nursing Home.

Relaxing on her screened in patio with a good book was how you could find Dot anytime the weather was nice. Trips to the casino, watching true crime TV shows and Dr. Phil, canning, and listening to Elvis were some of her favorite past times.

Dot's greatest joy was spending time with her family. She cherished every moment spent with them, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
