      As a retired music teacher, Dorothy Timm Meili wanted to simply inspire others and help when she could. Dorothy led a philanthropic life, planning as she journeyed through each chapter in her story until the last page. Her financial advisor encouraged Dorothy to make two charitable gift annuity plans that allowed her to support her favorite charities, while also having dependable income during her retirement years. During her lifetime Dorothy contributed locally and beyond in the area of health services, education and research, while also strongly supporting students and music. In addition to living out her philanthropic passions during her lifetime, Dorothy will also carry out a legacy for years to come. She not only left a scholarship fund with the Willmar Area Community Foundation for high school seniors pursuing a post-secondary degree in Music Education, Music Performance, or Music Therapy, Dorothy also left a permanently endowed estate gift of $250,000 to the Willmar Area Community Foundation and several other transformational gifts to local charities and beyond. Dorothy will be missed dearly by all those who knew her but, her song will continue for generations through the generosity and legacy she leaves with us!
