She worked at PCP for 32 years and after retiring as “Grandma” at Mooretown Rancheria Pre School. This was a job she loved, being surrounded by children. Dortha always had plenty of love to go around. Dortha embodied the love of Jesus Christ, not as much in word but in deed. Always ready to serve others, loving to all she had the chance to encounter. Hospitality was her specialty even when not having much herself, she was always willing to open her home to help or encourage others. She always was able to find the good in others and loved others unconditionally. Much like Daniel she had an “excellent spirit”. Dortha’s children, their children and their children have been beneficiaries of portions of this spirit. Thank you Grammy for this wonderful heritage. We know Jesus greeted her with “Enter in my good and faithful servant”.
