Dorothy Bryce — who graced Broadway and local stages for over 50 years, and donated innumerable hours to area charities — died today. She was 85.
The gifted actress appeared for years on television soap operas, including “The Guiding Light.”
Dorothy had a soft spot in her heart for Westport. She gave her time to countless causes, often as producer and/or entertainer. She was also very active in the Saugatuck Congregational Church.
In 2006 — in her 80s — she starred in the short film “Glacier Bay,” about 2 combative seniors. She was named Best Actress at the Breckenridge Film Festival.
Dorothy was a true town treasure — an artist who always gave of herself, on and off the stage and set.
A memorial service is set for Saturday, May 30 (1 p.m.) at Westport’s Unitarian Church.
