Dora resided in Houston, TX and worked as an electrolysis technician for over a decade. In 1984 she and Carl made Carmine, TX home. Dora was a devout Christian and a member of Martin Luther Lutheran Church of Carmine, TX. Dora was a member of Sons of Hermann, Ladies Aid and S.P.J.S.T. In her retirement she enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles and crochet.
Dora will be fondly remembered by her family and friends as a loving mother and loyal friend. Game nights were among the fondest of memories we will miss as she placed family, friends and creating memories above all in life. Dora raised 3 generations of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren as her own. All while creating countless memories that will live on in our hearts forever. Dora lost her fight with COVID 19 as her nurse sang her favorite song “Amazing Grace.”
