Dori Louise Ferns Obituary

Dori Louise Ferns went home peacefully on July 30, 2015. She entered into life in Massachusetts in 1927 and was the oldest of nine. She was married to Thorlad (Bob) Hendricks in 1950 and they later had three children.

Dori was vivacious and had a full heart for life. With a passion for helping others, she volunteered at the Greater New Bedford Center for the handicapped and Sol-E-Mar Center for cerebral palsy. After moving to California, she attended and later worked at Yuba College participating and leading many local clubs and organizations. For many years, she also worked for Yuba and Sutter Counties helping those in need. She was a cancer survivor, very outgoing, loved to dance, and enjoyed a game of pinochle with friends.

Dori is preceded in death by her ex-husband Bob Hendricks, her brothers Buddy Johnson, Billy Johnson, Richie Johnson, and her son Keith Hendricks. She is survived by her daughters Susi McCumber and Phyllis Kinstler, her siblings Eleanor Whitley, Carole Johnson, Charlie Johnson, Harold Johnson, and Erick Johnson, five grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.

The family would like to extend a very sincere thank you to Sutter North Hospice for the outstanding care Dori received.
