Dorothy “Dussy” B. (King) McNally, 88, of Cincinnatus, NY, passed away on Friday, October 5, 2018, at her home, while surrounded by her loving family.
Dussy was born in Cincinnatus, NY, on August 22, 1930, the daughter of the late John Dana and Ester Jerlean Gillum King. A lifelong resident of Cincinnatus, she was a 1948 graduate of Cincinnatus Central School. She was a member of the United Presbyterian Church of Cincinnatus and had been previously active in the choir, hand bells, and served on the session committee. For many years, she also took care of the flower arrangements at the church and assisted with the church social functions. She was one of the founding members of the Cincinnatus Corn Fest. Dussy worked as a self-employed baker and baked hundreds of birthday, wedding and special event cakes for local families throughout the years. She also served as the cook and caterer for the meals on wheels program. In her spare time, she enjoyed attending craft shows and tending to her flower and vegetable gardens. She loved music, horses, dogs and cats, but most important to her was her family.
