Biografía

Dora was born in New Canton, Illinois and grew up just outside Hannibal Missouri on a farm with her mother, father, and three sisters. She has told us of doing the many farm chores that were necessary such as milking the cows, feeding the chickens, and of her fondness for the horses that pulled the buggy when they would go to town. She went to school in a one room school house walking about a mile each day through cow pastures and often having to keep one eye on the bull that was in the pasture. When it was time to go to high school, she had to move off of the farm and into town in order to attend. After graduating she worked as a waitress in the Mark Twain hotel in Hannibal. She met and became engaged to Jim Withers, and soon thereafter he left to become a medic overseas during World War II. tragically, he was killed in battle, and soon after Dora moved to California to stay with her cousin in San Diego. She then found work in an airplane factory working as a riveter inside the airplanes. Two of her friends introduced her to M. D., a rowdy sailor from the Navy base there in San Diego. They dated briefly and then married. In 1952, their son Rusty came along followed by Linda in 1955. For the next several years they lived a nomad’s life pulling a small travel trailer and following M.D.’s oil drilling business. In the 60’s they moved to Beaumont andand raised their family. Dora was widowed in 1979 following M. D.’s death and lived the next 18 years in Northeast Texas to be closer to her daughter, Linda, and to help with her granddaughter, Lora, who had been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. She then moved back to Beaumont which she considered her home, and lived out her life in Bevil Oaks. Dora was a talented artist, and enjoyed china painting, oil and watercolor painting as well as knitting, crocheting, and sewing. She also was a treasured volunteer for 17 years for Baptist Hospital in Beaumont. Among her greatest joys in life were her family and working in her yard which she did until she was 97 years old.
