In 1943, about 23 years old
Dorothy Gertrude was born in 1920, the eighth daughter, between Ann and Kay.
Dot, at 18, graduating from High School
Jack, four years younger, graduating from grade school (?)
The only reason Jack is taller than Dorothy here is that he is standing on a step.
Ann and Dot
Cele, Dot and Kay behind Pat B. and Ben
Dorothy was the tallest girl, an attribute considered quite attractive today, but it may be she was often advised to wear flats.

On Jack's copy of this photo he wrote

What a head of hair!
(That might be something my mother would have said.)
Dorothy married Edward Koch (NOT the mayor) in 1946.
