Dotty was born in Haddonfield on June 25, 1924 to James and Mary (Cassario) Whittle and grew up with her younger sisters, Margaret and Lotta, on Maple Street in Woodbury. 

Dotty married William Joseph Tiver at St. Patrick’s Church in 1946. In the following years, the couple raised their daughters, Christina and Patricia, in Woodbury and Woodbury Heights. Dotty will be remembered by those who had the opportunity to know her as a very strong, brave, independent woman with a bright, beautiful spirit and a perpetual smile. A dynamic real estate agent for more than 30 years at Harvest Realty on Delaware Street in Woodbury (where an award in her name is given annually to the agent with the most listings), Dot retired at 81 years old. 

Always active in the community, Dotty’s roles included president of the PTA and planning board member. Dot enjoyed playing golf and received an honorary lifetime membership at Pitman Golf Course. She experienced memorable travels in her lifetime, including many winters in Florida and some extended stays in Hawaii. Dot loved singing; she was a member of the choir at St. Patrick’s Church, where she also sang for weddings, and continued sharing her beautiful soprano voice up until her last months. 

Dotty was a devoted mother to Christina Marie (Richard) Hay of Ashland, Maine and LaBelle, Fla, and Patricia Ann (Darvin) King of Hudson, Ohio, cherished Nana to Mary Allegra Tiver (Raymond Bebak) of Swedesboro, Brian (Annie) King of North Olmstead, Ohio, Melissa King of Lakewood, Ohio, and Thomas King of Chicago; dear sister to Margaret (Whittle) Dietrich of Hendersonville, Tenn. and Lotta (Whittle) Menah of West Deptford; caring aunt to several nieces and nephews; lifelong friend to Norton Worthington of Sarasota, Fla. and dear friend to many. Dotty was also a loving daughter to the late James and Mary (Cassario) Whittle, beloved wife of the late William Joseph Tiver, and companion to the late Clifford “Soupie” Campbell.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend Dotty’s Visitation on Thursday, June 20 at Holy Angels Parish at St. Patrick’s Church, located at 64 Cooper Street in Woodbury from 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. A Funeral Mass will be held at the Church from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with Interment to follow at Eglington Cemetery, located at 320 Kings Highway in Clarksboro, from 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
