TheLiberalOC mourns our friend Dot De Leon who has been battling leukemia for several months now. In spite of receiving a devastating prognosis several months ago, Dot remained committed to living every day and every moment with grace, courage and class.
She loved her friends, Disneyland, and Democrats. She is a co-host for a February 6 fundraiser for Jose Solorio’s senate race and is a strong supporter of Sharon Quirk-Silva’s re-election bid for state assembly.
DPPOC Chairman Henry Vandermeir announced her passing on Facebook.
Dot was also one of the most positive people you could ever know. Her smile could light up a room and she made everyone feel welcome. She fought her disease with courage, a positive spirit and optimism. Godspeed in your journey Dot. We’ll note the absence of talking with you while cherishing your friendship in our hearts.
