Dorothy Mohr
3/30/1926 - 7/10/2014


Dorothy "Dottie" Mohr wife, mother, sister, and believer passed from this earth to her heavenly home on July 10, 2014 just shy of her 67th wedding anniversary.
Dorothy grew up in Randolph Mass., the daughter of a Swedish mother Elsie and English father Clifton, sister, Marilyn and brothers, Billy and Bob (Dickinson). From her parents she developed her love of the out of doors, swimming, and poetry.
After high school, Dorothy was accepted into the Cadet Nursing Core and received her Registered Nursing degree. She then married her high school sweetheart, Fred and moved to California. The 5'2" lady raised two daughters, Patty and Pam then returned to her career in nursing at Daniel Freeman and St Jude hospitals in So Cal.
When she retired, Dorothy split her time between her home in Palm Springs, Calif., where she and Fred helped expand the Evangelical Free Church of Palm Desert to a permanent location and Auburn, Calif. Dorothy was the ultimate hostess and loved having family and friends at her home at Lake of the Pines. Her grandsons Ben and Bryan meant the world to her, she loved listening to their fishing stories and going boating with them.
Her church family and Bible study friends were very special to her. She was a member of Cornerstone Community Church in Auburn since 1984 and was active in the Gideon auxiliary.
Dottie had a great passion for traveling. She and Fred shared many special trips with friends Bill and Joanne to Quebec, and N.Y. City. A lover of sunshine and warm weather they went on Caribbean cruises often with her girls and their husbands, Dave and Kent. The family traveled to Yellowstone, camped in Yosemite, and rode rapids down the Colorado, American and Truckee rivers. Dottie and Fred shared adventures in Africa, Israel, Germany, and Switzerland to name a few.
She left us in the most pleasant way, with Fred and her guardian angel Genie Snyder by her side, singing and playing some of their favorite songs.
A celebration of her life will be held on August 30, 2014 at the Cornerstone Community Church at 11:00 a.m.
