Dorothy wished to be buried at sea due to her life's research of crabs and other sea life. John honored these wishes however it was recommended to him to save some of her ashes and include them with his when he was interned at St Anne's in Middletown DE. For this reason they are both shown on John's headstone. Dorothy's family agreed with this decision.
