Dorothy Dales Obituary
DOROTHY DALES, (known to all of her family and friends as Dottie) passed into the loving arms of the Lord Feb 5th, 2014, she was 89 years of age. This day would have also celebrated her 70th wedding anniversary. A perfect day to reunite with her husband. Dottie was born May 6th 1924 in Riverside, Ca. She remained a life long resident. She graduated from Poly High School in 1942 and got her first job at age 18 with the law firm of Thompson and Colegate. She was very proud of her position there. On Feb. 5th 1944 she married the love of her life, Edward Scott Dales (known to family and friends as Scootie) Dottie and Scootie were such a fun loving couple. She continued to work at the law firm putting her husband through law school. She became a stay at home mom with the births of her children Denise and Craig. She was a wonderful mother. In 1964 Dottie and Scootie joined the Victory Country Club where they enjoyed many activities. One of those was dancing. They were something to see on the dance floor, elegant and they could also "cut a rug". Golfing was also a big activity they both enjoyed. When they went on vacation they took their own golf clubs. That's how serious they were about their favorite sport. At the age of 82 while playing golf with her friends at the Victory Golf Course she hit a hole in one. Dottie liked to say that "no one was more surprised than me". She was such a beautiful person, so loved by all of her family and friends. Dottie is predeceased by her husband Scootie and her beautiful daughter Denise Dales. She is survived by her son Craig Dales. At the request of Dottie there will be no public memorial.
