Celebrity's Relative
    (July 18, 1921-April 11, 2017)
    Born in Linton, Indiana
    Birth name was Dorothy Hofert
    Married to Joe Letterman (1942-73) and Hans Mengering (1983- )
    Mother of David Letterman
    Appears on The Late Show with David Letterman at Thanksgiving and Mother's Day, as a Winter Olympics commentator (1994, 1998, 2002) and on other occasions
    Wrote 'Home Cookin' with Dave's Mom' (1996)
    She raised a smart-alecky kid.
    She asked Hilary Clinton if she could get Bill to fix Dave's speeding tickets.
    In her cookbook, she says Dave's favorite pie is chocolate chiffon, while on the show he said it is cherry. (I smell a cover-up!)
    The profits from her cookbook went to charity.
    A few days before her debut at the Nagano Olympics, she fell and needed eight stitches over her eyebrow.
    She commented, 'The positive response to my appearances on David's show has nothing to do with my amateur abilities as a broadcaster. People enjoy seeing a mother and son together. It's that simple.'
