Dorothe Mae Derrick, 76, a longtime resident of Othello, Wash., and a former Baker City resident, died June 7, 2001, at the Beverly Health Care Center at Othello.

Her memorial service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at the Church of the Nazarene at Othello. Pastor Robert Luhn will officiate. There will be a graveside service at 1 p.m. Friday at Mount Hope Cemetery. Pastor Neil Castle of the Baker City Church of the Nazarene will officiate.

Mrs. Derrick was born on June 23, 1924, at Baker City to Edward and Rose Haywood Mineff. She married Cecil D. Derrick in Baker City on July 23, 1923. She had lived at Othello for 43 years.

Her family and friends would consider Mrs. Derrick a courageous and strong-willed woman. She faced many physical and emotional trials as a result of a plane crash in 1982 that took the life of her husband, Cecil. She was determined to walk again, even though doctors predicted that she would not be able to do so.

Prior to the accident, she and her husband enjoyed outdoor life to its fullest. She had been an avid golfer and snow skier. She enjoyed yard work and just being outdoors. At one time she was actively involved in the Eastern Star and was a member of the Presbyterian Church.

Survivors include her son, Richard, and his wife, Robin Derrick, of Bothell, Wash.; a daughter, Linda K. Derrick of New Mexico; and two sisters, Grace Lewis of Baker City and Helen Bierman of Portland.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Coles-Strommer Funeral Home in Baker City and the Stevens Funeral Chapel at Othello.
