Dora lived her entire life in the Gallatin Valley attending the one-room schoolhouse, Elk Grove Elementary, near the family homestead between Four Corners and Gallatin Gateway. Later graduated from Gallatin County High School and went to work for the phone company as a switchboard operator. She met Frank and married on Nov. 26, 1959. After marriage, Dora left the phone company and became a full-time wife and mother. Her greatest joys were her love and devotion to God and her family.
