Dorothy Bessie Witcraft
March 19, 1926-April 24
Dorothy Bessie (Eby) Witcraft was born in Bend, Oregon, the first child of Herbert Philip Eby and Bessie Maude (Hill) Eby. Raised on the Eby farm near Redmond Oregon, east of Cinder Butte, she attended Chetler Butte Grade School, a one-room schoolhouse, as well as Redmond Union High School. She went to Oregon State College where she studied home economics and married G. Merle Witcraft on July 12, 1945.
In 1949 the Witcraft family moved to California. They lived in the Bay Area and southern California until 1956, when they moved to Rancho Cordova, Calif. Two years later they purchased a house on Catawba Way in Rancho Cordova, where she lived for the next 50 years. Dorothy was a homemaker and studied art at Sacramento State College specializing in oil painting.
She became a charter member of the Cordova Presbyterian Church in 1961, and that year returned to Sac State to complete her bachelor’s degree followed by her master’s in education. For the next 27 years she taught over much of the Sacramento area, primarily high school history and home economics in the Grant and Roseville districts. She also loved teaching in the Young Parents Program. After retirement she became the neighborhood grandma and loved feeding the local kids. In 2008 she moved to Almond Avenue Residence Club in Orangevale, where she spent the last two years of her life.
She is survived by her son, Dean Witcraft, wife Mary and their children Michael and Amy; and by daughter Veleta Witcraft and husband Kevin Purcell. Surviving siblings include Fay (Hagman) Drake, Gerald Eby and Craig Eby. Dorothy will be buried in her parents’ family plot in the Redmond Memorial Cemetery on July 3rd.

From Britain, with love

Kathleeen Daykin and Averill Abbott

In 1960 two twenty-something women answered the call for pen friends from the Associated Country Women of the World. Fifty years later, the women – Kathleen Daykin of Canterbury, England, and Averill Abbott of Redmond – are still writing. And they’ve become traveling companions.
Daykin is in the midst of a seven-week visit with Abbott – her fifth – and they’re planning the details of Abbot’s fifth trip to England next year.When they started writing Daykin was 25, married and living in Hereford, England. Abbott, then Averill Hyder, was 21, married, the mother of an infant and living in Culver.
Daykin was a member of her village’s Women’s Institute, and Abbott was active in the Women’s Home Extension program. Both programs provided educational and social outlets for women in rural areas, with classes on sewing, cooking, food preservation, nutrition and child development, etc. While the W.I. is experiencing a resurgence of interest in England, the Women’s Home Extension program has vanished, the women said.
At first the pair exchanged letters sporadically, but in 1979 Daykin inherited some money from her grandfather.
“I told my husband and two boys I’d like to meet that lady I’ve been writing to,” Daykin said.That visit cemented their friendship.
“When she came the first time, the visit really linked us up,” Abbott said, “We’re like sisters.”
“Fifty years is a long time,” Daykin added.
Over the years they’ve raised children, been through divorces and become grandmothers. Daykin has two sons – one retired from the Metropolitan Police and one in the Royal Air Force – and four grandchildren.Abbott has four children, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.Daykin was an auxiliary nurse in a hospital when she retired for the last time 14 years ago. Abbott was a printing and mail clerk at Central Oregon Community College when she retired in 2002.
During Daykin’s visit this year the two put 2,800 miles on Abbott’s car on a trip to the Grand Canyon (on Daykin’s bucket list of must-dos), Arches National Park and Death Valley. Following a few days in Ashland, the pair will head to Vancouver Island to visit Daykin’s brother.
In the past they’ve been to Las Vegas, and in 1980 they took five children to Disneyland in a motorhome.
“That was nuts,” Abbott laughed.Daykin heads back to England July 2, but plans are in the works for her return in two years, when they’re planning a trip to Yellowstone (another item on Daykin’s bucket list) and perhaps a trip across Canada.
Abbott’s trips to England have immersed her in history.
“Everything’s so old (in England); we don’t have anything to compare,” said Abbott, who has an interest in King Henry VIII and his era.“There’s so much history in every mile and not just 100 years,” she said.
Daykin and Abbott have traveled all over England, with trips to Ireland and Scotland. Next year’s itinerary includes a visit to Scotland to search out some of Abbott’s ancestors, the White Cliffs of Dover and the Lake District.
“It’s always fun to know somebody when you’re traveling,” Abbott said. “She gets the B&Bs lined up and the bus schedules.“It’s so much better than traveling on your own,” Abbott added, as the “Thelma and Louise” pair laughed over past adventures and plotted new ones.
