She moved to Houston as a young girl and graduated from Milby High School and attended Business College before meeting Blocker at Waugh Drive Baptist Church. Dorothy was head teller for a bank in the Gulf Building, when it was the tallest building in Houston Texas. After her marriage in 1954 Dorothy and Blocker remained in Houston area until 1962 when they moved to Navasota with their young daughter, Gregorie. While in Navasota they remodeled a historic home and Dorothy was active in First Baptist Church and opened a successful accounting and tax business in Bryan. The couple moved to Bryan in 1968 where they continued to work alongside each other in their accounting and tax business for over 30 years before retiring to Houston to be close to their daughter and granddaughter. Mrs. Trant also worked for Republic Energy and MHMRA. Before retirement Dorothy ran a successful bed & breakfast hosting many, many Aggies and their families for holidays and game days! They were also fortunate to have hosted many weddings in their home for friends and family, most proud of nieces and nephews of both and Blocker and Dorothy who were married in their home over the years. Dorothy enjoyed entertaining, cooking, remodeling several homes, including two historic homes, and most of all she enjoyed her family and being a Grammie. Dorothy always had a pot of coffee and cookies waiting for anyone who dropped by their home or office.
She and Blocker enjoyed raising and showing horses with their daughter and they enjoyed traveling in their later years. They also had some ventures in the restaurant business in Bryan-College Station and adopted many Aggies. Dorothy was a member of First Baptist – Bryan where she was in the choir, Singing Tree, and provided refreshments for Vacation Bible School.
