Dorothy Frances Brandt Hallstrom, 80, of Baker City died at her home on May 27, 2004.

Her memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at the cabin near Sumpter, which Dorothy dearly loved.
Dorothy was born on July 9, 1923, at Seattle, Wash., to George and Doris Brandt.

She moved with her parents to Portland, where she completed her education. Dorothy always appreciated a good day’s work and never shirked responsibility.

She worked as a bookkeeper and owned a successful yarn shop in Baker City. She also helped build a log cabin with her husband, James Cheatum, in Sumpter on land left to by her grandfather, Frank Davenport.

She was a private person, yet fun-loving, warm, affectionate and generous.

Dorothy will sincerely and deeply be missed by those who knew and loved her.

Survivors include her daughter, Denise McDonald; granddaughters, Maria and Tara; and cousins Sue and Bob Russell.

Memorial contributions may be made in the name of Dorothy Hallstrom to the Make A Wish Foundation through Coles Funeral Home, 1950 Place Street, Baker City, OR 97814.
