MADISON—Dorothy Jean Farley, age 90, of Madison, Wis., passed away on Friday, Jan. 10, 2020, at Agrace Hospice & Palliative Care. She was born March 31, 1929, to Arnold and Hilda Jocheck Moeller. On Aug. 22, 1948, she married Robert Levi Farley.

Dorothy was a wonderful wife, teacher, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, school volunteer, and friend.
