Barkdoll, Dorothy - Fort Morgan  
Dorothy Aureletta Barkdoll went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, June 14, 2016. Dorothy was born on April 15, 1925, in a Model-T Ford near Alvin, Wisconsin. She was the oldest of 14 children born to Earle and Nancy Coe. Dorothy moved with her family to California in 1940. She met Marvin Barkdoll in San Diego where he was stationed on the USS Saratoga, an aircraft carrier. Their first date was a picnic planned for December 8, 1941, the day Pearl Harbor was bombed and war declared. Needless to say, he didn't show up for the date, and she didn't see him for 5 years. She met and married Anthony Dugue, and they had two daughters, Victoria Ellen and Sherry Aurelynn. They were divorced shortly after the birth of Sherry. Marvin came back from the war, found Dorothy, and they married on July 13, 1947, in Yuma, Arizona. They lived in Los Angeles for a few years before moving to Alaska to homestead on DouglasIsland. They had two daughters, Glenda Faith born in Juneau, Alaska, and Holly Charlene born in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Dorothy loved fashion, fabrics, and sewing. She made beautiful clothes for her family and everyone received quilts. Her creativity also showed itself in her ceramics and drawings. She had a beautiful voice and sang at church and for nursing home residents where she shared her love of the Lord and His word. Sharing the gospel with family and friends was very important to her. She enjoyed her roses and her fruit trees, and her home reflected her love of pretty things. Her ambition to be an art teacher was never met, but she did find other creative outlets. Dorothy is survived by her daughters, Vikki Dugue of Brighton, CO., Glenda Kehm (Stephen) of FortMorgan and Holly Coe (Lance) of Maysville, Georgia: three brothers, Eddie Coe (Reva), Donnie Coe (Nora), and Michael Coe (Carol); two sisters Nancy Taylor (George), and Gayle Milward (Rick). There are 18 living grandchildren and numerous great and great-great grandchildren along with many cousins, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Marvin, her daughter Sherry, her sisters, June, Virginia, Mary Ellen, Betty and Marilyn. Her brothers predeceasing her include William, Charlie, and Marlin, along with her parents. An adult granddaughter was killed, and there are grandbabies that she is joining in heaven. Dorothy didn't want a big "to-do" for her as she put it, and her family is honoring her wishes with a private family memorial.
