Following is the obituary of the artist, published in The Seattle Times on Dec. 8, 2013.

Dorothy Catherine Brott Liberty, artist, wife and mother was born in Marquette Michigan, on August 27, 1920, the daughter of Leo Brott and Catherine Lillian Stenglein Brott. She died November 6, 2013 in Seattle, in the company of her children.

Dorothy began painting oils seriously at age 11 and continued to paint for the next 76 years. Although she worked primarily in oils she also produced art, both representational and abstract, in watercolor, ink, charcoal, pastels, texture paints and concrete.

Her work appeared in many juried shows and won prizes from the 1940s through the 1990s including the Seattle and Portland Art Museums, the Frye Art Museum and Henry Gallery in Seattle, the Eastside Association of Fine Arts in Bellevue, Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center on Maui, and other galleries and shows in Washington, Oregon, Michigan, Hawai'i and California. She contributed her time to public schools, the various churches where she and her family worshipped and to arts organizations. She was President of the Mercer Island Visual Arts League for many years.

Dorothy often said that her family was her other great passion.

Her husband, Bob Liberty, a partner and President of Moss Adams, who lovingly supported her career in art through 61 years of marriage, preceded her in death in 2006. Her three children (Kathleen of Christchurch New Zealand, Sara of Edmonds, Washington and Robert of Portland, Oregon) all learned from her example to live life vigorously and to value creativity. Dorothy Liberty is survived by them, their spouses Doug, Peter and Khanh, her three grandchildren Liberty, Lillian and Thomas and their families and her sister Judy Brott Katz of Roeland Park, Kansas.

Following is the obituary of the artist published in The Oregonian, November 24 to November 27, 2013.

Liberty, Dorothy Catherine Brott 93;  Aug. 27, 1920 Nov. 06, 2013

Dorothy Catherine Brott Lib-erty, a beautiful woman with big blue eyes and a vivid personality, lived a full life as an artist, wife, mother and a contributor to her community. Dorothy was the daughter of Leo Brott and Lillian Stenglein of Marquette, Michigan. She was a resident of Portland from 1953 to 1969, where she made many lasting friendships.

Dorothy began painting oils seriously at age 11, and continued to paint for the next 76 years. Her teachers included Francis Chapin and Rudy Penn of the Chicago Art Institute and Louis Bunce and Michel Russo at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland. Although she worked primarily in oils, she also produced representational and abstract art in watercolor, ink, charcoal, pastels, texture paints and concrete.

Her work appeared in many juried shows and won prizes from the 1940s through the 1990s at the Portland and Seattle Art Museums, the Frye Art Museum and Henry Gallery in Seattle and various private galleries and shows in the Northwest, Michigan, California and Hawaii. She is included in the biographical dictionary of Oregon painters, Oregon Painters: The First Hundred Years. She contributed her time to public schools, local arts organizations and various churches where she and her family worshipped.

Pursuing her art career while being a wife and mother was made possible by the loving support for her life as an artist provided by her husband, Bob Liberty, who had his own distinguished career as a CPA with Moss Adams & Company. They were married while Bob was serving in the U.S. Navy during WWII, and enjoyed life together for more than 61 years, spent in their beloved Pacific Northwest and Hawaii. Dorothy often said that her family was her other great passion.

Her children, Kathleen of Christchurch, New Zealand, Sara of Edmonds, Wash., and Robert of Portland, all learned from her to live life vigorously and to value creativity. Dorothy Liberty is survived by them; their spouses, Doug, Peter and Khanh; grandchildren, Liberty, Lillian and Thomas and their families; and sister, Judy Katz of Roeland Park, Kan.
