Dorothy Virginia Bone
Dorothy Virginia Bone was born Dec. 5, 1930 in Forsyth, Montana. She was the youngest of five daughters born to Charles and Amanda Tatum. Dorothy graduated from Billings Senior High School in 1948. She spent most of her career in the Clerk of District Court's Office in Yellowstone County and later in Carbon County. Dorothy died peacefully Feb. 6, 2021 after suffering a short term medical issue.
She loved music, live theater, and travel. One travel highlight was escorting her elderly mother across Europe. She proudly served on the Red Lodge Mountain Auxiliary Ski Patrol and the Beartooth Elks Lodge 534. She amassed an impressive collection of miniature carousel horses, always prominently displayed in her home.
She was preceded in death by her parents and four sisters, Marge Sommerville, Jean Korich, Catherine Tatum and Ruth (Allene) Anderson. Her beloved son and daughter Larry Robert Turner and Vickie Lee Card also preceded her.
Dorothy is survived by her daughter Lynne Turner Fitzgerald and son-in-law, Steve Galloway; grandsons Taylor Fitzgerald and Caleb Addy; granddaughter Amanda Addy; great-grandson Oliver Tudor; nephews Kim and Rick Korich, and Mark Anderson.
The family would like to extend heartfelt appreciation for the kind, loving care she received from Riverstone Hospice Services (she was especially fond of Nurse Jessica!) and the 'family' she grew to love at West Park Village.
Cremation has taken place. No services are planned at this time. A graveside service will be held later this spring.
