Mom lived her life putting others concerns and happiness before her own. Not only with her family but all she met.
The simple things gave Mom the most joy, praying for others, caring for her grandchildren, family gatherings especially Christmas Eve and watching the wild birds at the feeder
Before her marriage Dorla was employed at Marathon Cheese Corporation for four years. She and Vernon F. Smazal were united in marriage on October 9, 1957 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Marathon.

She is also survived by fourteen grandchildren. She is further survived by two sisters and a brother, Adeline Sellung of Edgar, Marian Huth of Marshfield, and Lawrence Lang of Arpin and a sister-in-law Eileen (Phillip) Lang of Madison along with several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, four brothers, Emil, Alex, Arthur, and Phillip Lang, a sister, Clara Lang, and a grandson, Ezra Braun.
Mom, we are blessed to have you in lives and in our hearts. Your legacy is the kindness you always showed others. We will carry it with us and love you forever.
