Dorothy "Dottie" Lea Nelson
August 3, 1938 - Sept. 12, 2010
Dorothy "Dottie" Lea Nelson, of Redmond, passed on September 12, 2010, at the age of 72. She was born on August 3, 1938, in Silverton, Oregon, to William and Edna Marian Anderson, as one of nine children.
A lifelong Oregonian, she loved the outdoors and family. She blended these by having a big garden and canning enough to give to her family and extended family, salsa, pickled cucumbers and beans, to name a few. Dottie was a gracious hostess and never knew a stranger, welcoming all to her home.
Dottie was a great sports fan; she once travelled to Reno to bowl with a team made up of herself and her four sisters.
Dottie will be remember and missed by her sons, Jerry Miller, Ben Nelson and Merle Nelson; and daughters, Patty Braunstein, Teresa Robinson, Toni and Sherry Krog; her sisters, Barbara Bullock, Joan Beckner, Marylou Keeler and Rosie Schlewitz; and brother, Ken Anderson and many, many grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her devoted husband and best friend, Merle "Hap" Nelson; and brothers, Bill, Jim and Pat Anderson.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at 3:00 pm, Sat., Oct. 2, at Redmond Masonic Lodge, 627 7th St., Redmond.
