Well, I guess it's my time to take center stage one last time. Hi, I'm
Dorothy (Asher) Baughman, though you probably already knew that. I was
born on a sunny day in Plato, Missouri, on Aug. 4, 1938, to my lovely
parents, Elvin and Lucille Asher. I must admit, they did a pretty good
job raising a generous, smart, spirited, and witty gal like me. I've
lived a full life, filled with laughter, love, and a fair share of
bling. I spent the better part of my years in the gorgeous Lake Havasu
City, Arizona.

In my heyday, I was the proud owner of the Mane Event Hair Salon. Boy,
did I love making people look good! I was in the business of not just
cutting hair, but also spreading joy. People often say that "Beauty
begins the moment you decide to be yourself," and I lived by that. I was
always myself, whether I was snipping away at a client's hair, enjoying
my 4 o'clock cocktail, or cleaning my rides until they sparkled like my

Family was my soft spot, and without a doubt, what mattered most to me.
I leave behind a beautiful family, who I know will keep my spirit alive:
my daughter, Teri Simms, my son, Derek Simms, my stepdaughters, Jan Ball
and Bev Bigger, my grandchildren, Shawn King, Colton Simms, Kelly
Widerburg, Mike Ball, my great-grandkids, Noah and Trace King, and my
niece, w Asher. I join my dear spouse, Harry Baughman, my parents, Elvin
and Lucille, my brothers, Donald and Dewey Asher, and my nephew, Carey
Asher, in a place I like to imagine has an endless supply of bling and
spotless rides.

As I always said, "In the end, it's not the years in your life that
count. It's the life in your years." So, don't mourn for me, instead,
celebrate my life, remember the good times, and keep the laughter going.
Please share your memories and photos with me on my memorial page. I'd
love to see them and maybe even share a chuckle or two with you. I might
be gone, but I'll never be forgotten. This is Dorothy, signing off, for
now, with a wink and a smile.
