Dora and I never met. For many years we chatted on the phone, we shared the same grandchildren. She was a very loving, caring lady.. my sympathy to all her family.

Unforgettable woman. Dora's smiles, giggles, her hugs, watching her do needlework, watching her dance, and gossip with my Mom and Dadand oh my goshher cooking. My childhood would not have been the same without the mac and cheese, baked beans, and the ice cream punch we had on special occasions. She loved sending cards and presents. She would call on my birthday and sing the full Happy Birthday song over the phone machine. I remember a whopper of a spanking after sticking my sister in a commercial dryer when Dora was babysitting us and then of course, hugs and kisses after the tears. Love to all my Hembree cousins Jeannie, Ben, Danny, Robert and Patty.
Hugs, Julie DeHart Criswell

Dorothy "Dora" Hembree was already an Icon at Frontier Village Amusement Park when I joined the park in 1966. She managed the General Store and its satellite operations for, at least, 16 of the 19 years that FV operated - and did so brilliantly. Though she could be demanding and precise, her staff truly loved her and they learned many skills (some not even work related) under her leadership. I was proud to be her 'Boss' for the last 7 years the park was open, but Dora really did not require a boss. She was smart, gifted and a natural trainer. She was also crafty and skilled, but fair when purchasing merchandise for our department. She had a remarkable sense of recall. Dora was cheerful and as dependable as the sun on a summer morning. She never missed a day of work, to my memory. Everyone who came in contact with Dora learned one or two impressionable lessons from her that they treasured for life. We've heard this phrase before, but with Dora, the world truly was a better place. All of us could certainly benefit from having more people like Dora among us today. Happy Trails, Dora ~ and we thank you. Big cowboy hugs from Allen .
