Henner, Dorothy Jane “Dot” Hall Mrs. – Obituary

Haines, Oregon

Dorothy Jane “Dot” Henner, 73, of Haines, died July 29, 2001, at St. Elizabeth Health Services.

At her request, there will be no services.

Mrs. Henner was born Nov. 11, 1927, at Baker City to James and Mabel York Hall along with her twin brother, Donald, who preceded her in death in the early 1970s.

She married John E. Henner Jr. in 1946 in Baker City, and lived and worked in Haines until 1960, when the couple moved to Irrigon. After living in the Hermiston area for seven years, she and her husband moved to The Dalles; they eventually moved back to Haines, where they retired. Mrs. Henner worked as a cook, waitress and bartender in many restaurants through the years. Mr. Henner was a mechanic. He preceded her in death in 1996.
In December of 1956 Mrs. Henner gave birth to the light of her life, her only son, Jack. Despite severe health problems, she endured pregnancy to give life to her son, who was at her side as she passed.

Mrs. Henner enjoyed many outdoor activities with her husband, adored her grandchildren and enjoyed sewing. Her rough exterior rarely gave way to her charitable side. She was there in her own way when someone was in need, and there are many people who have stories of their experiences with her.

Mrs. Henner is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Jack and Cindy Henner of Haines; her mother-in-law, Wilma Henner of Haines; a brother and sister-in-law, Edward and Violet Hall of Hermiston; sisters, Millie Hickerson of Baker City, Irene Martin of Boise and Loreen Spriet of Colorado; two grandchildren, Lora and Brandon; two step-grandchildren; one step-great-grandchild; numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and great-great nieces and nephews.

Mrs. Henner was preceded in death by her husband; two brothers, Glen and Donald Hall; and a sister, Ada.
Contributions in Mrs. Henner’s memory may be made to the American Heart Association or American Cancer Society in care of the Coles-Strommer Funeral Home, 1950 Place St., Baker City, Ore., 97814.
