Dorris Mary Scott Roy, 88, a former Baker City resident, died Aug. 10, 2001, in Oregon City.

Mrs. Roy was born on Sept. 30, 1912, at Corvallis to Frank and Malinda Scott. She was proud of her roots and the fact that she was a native Oregonian. Her paternal grandfather came West in a wagon train from Dubuque County, Iowa, and settled at Tangent in 1853.

After graduating from Corvallis High School, she completed a degree in home economics from Oregon State University and earned a master’s degree in Extension Education from the University of Wisconsin.

She lived in Baker City from 1952 to 1959, where she started her 22-year career in the Extension Service. She also served in Yamhill, Jefferson and Clatsop counties. As an Extension agent, she received a Distinguished Service Award for her outstanding program development from the National Association of Extension Home Economics. After retirement, she moved to the Portland area.

Survivors include her son, Richard Roy of Portland; her daughter, Marilyn Torsen of West Linn; six grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Oregon 4-H Foundation, Ballard Hall, OSU, Corvallis, OR 97331.
