Dorothy married Harold Malkin on February 6, 1954 and together they raised five children: Ann Marie, Christine, John, Christopher, and Suzanne.

Harold and Dot moved to the Adirondacks in 1990 after retiring from NYS as a MHTA, and made it their home. Dorothy was an active member and devout Catholic parishioner of St. Margaret's Community. She enjoyed watching and coaching her children and grandchildren, she never missed Meghan's games or track meets! Dorothy loved to sew and made many costumes and dresses for her children and grandchildren. She loved family visits, dinners, skiing, and horses; as well as football and hockey. She loved to laugh, take country rides, read, and do crossword puzzles; she also had a great sense of humor, always saying "I'm the last of the Egan's" outliving all of her siblings.

Preceding her in death are her parents; husband Harold; her siblings Marie Shea, John Egan, Thomas Egan, William Egan, and Francis Egan; and, son-in-law Michael Lynch.
