To Dorothy's family, in the name of her classmates, of The Dalles High School of 1957 to let you know how much Dorothy will be missed. I remember how much help she was when planning class reunions. I relayed this to the classmate email list that I have. Keeper of the Class of 1957 List, Classmate: Darrel G. McBride of Dallesport, WA..
