Dorothy Lea was born January 19, 1954, the daughter of Douglas and Anola (Bly) Roll in Minneapolis, MN. As a small child, Dorothy’s parents moved the family to Mitchell. She attended school in Mitchell and later Osage High School. Through the years, Dorothy worked various jobs including working at a carnival, bartending and the majority of her working years were dedicated to TriMark until her retirement in 2004. One August evening in 1999 while out with friends, Dorothy met the love of her life, Irvin “Irv” Nystel. The couple were united in marriage on October 1, 2005 at Faith Lutheran Church in Mitchell and made their home in New Hampton. In the years after retirement, Dorothy enjoyed quilting, working part time and she and Irv traveled across the nation. They made trips to see family in Virginia, Oklahoma, and Florida. One of their most favorite trips was to the mountains of Jackson Hole, WY for her nephew, Ryan’s wedding. She loved going to Kansas City for NASCAR races and Chicago Wrigley Field for Cubs games. Dorothy’s other favorite loves were reading, her two cats, Benjamin and Ace, and her family.
