Mills, Doratha Mae “Dottie” – Obituary

Doratha Mae “Dottie” Mills 76, of Baker City, died May 19, 2005, at her home. There will be a family service later at Ft. Laramie, Wyo. She will be buried in Wyoming alongside her mother and sister. She was born on Dec. 19, 1928, at Ft. Laramie, Wyo., to Orville E. and Doratha Knott Mills. She attended high school at Coos Bay and homesteaded at Big Piney, Wyo. She worked as a bartender in Sweet Home. She had gardening and houseplant skills and loved smelling freshly turned earth ready for planting — anything. Food first if money is tight, then flowers if you can afford them. She always knew just what to grow where and what to fertilize it with and how to talk to it! She had cooking skills and knew just how to make $5 a day stretch into some pretty good meals. How to look in the cupboard and “see” what to put together. Where someone else saw a can of soup, she taught her children to make a meal for four. Her children are considered to be pretty good cooks and can set a nice table thanks to the endless hours they spent watching her whip something up. They say they will never be able to make a sour cream raisin pie like she did, though. They say she was the best cook they ever...
