Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents; husband, George; brother, Robert Stewart Sr.; sister, Theadora (Stewart) Schleiche; and grandson, Bo Phifer.
Dorothy is survived by her three children, Stacia (Greg) Phifer, Bethany (Casey) Cameron and Charles Oberg; her grandchildren, Brooke Robason, Clay Cameron, Ashley Torres, Katy Cameron, Shae Phifer and Josh Phifer; twelve great grandchildren; and special friend, Jacob Schmidt.
Per Dorothy’s wishes, there will be no public services. Online condolences may be made by visiting www.jones-mortuary.com. Her wish is for everyone to spend time with their family and friends, live simply, be kind and generous to all, and rejoice in the Lord every day!
I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow-
of smiles when life is done.
I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly through the hills,
Of happy times, laughing times, of bright and sunny days.
I’d like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun of happy memories that I leave.
When life is done.
By, Dorothy Jean Oberg
