Stephen Colbert Pays Tribute to David Letterman's Late Mom
Dorothy was often featured on The Late Show when Letterman was the host. She made regular appearances before the Mother’s Day and Thanksgiving episodes each year and she also covered three Winter Olympics for the show.
In 1996, Dorothy published a cookbook titled “Home Cookin’ with Dave’s Mom.”
