Dorothy D. Freeman, 96, passed away peacefully Monday, December 24, 2012, at her Red Bluff home. She was born August 13, 1916, in Seattle, WA. She grew up in Willows, CA, where she met and married, Samuel P. Freeman. They were married for 58 years when Sam died in 1999. She will be interred at the Elk Creek Cemetery with Sam. Dorothy graduated from Willows High School, and worked for Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company as an operator. After her sons grew up and left home, Sam and Dorothy travelled the world, visiting Africa, Australia, Europe, Bali, and touring the US. Dorothy enjoyed and excelled at coordinating family gatherings. Entertaining and cooking were her specialty, along with gardening and crafting. Her lifelong passion was creating textiles from start to finish: raw wool carding, spinning, dying, weaving, and sewing. She also loved visiting the mountains, seeing wildflowers, and breathing the fresh air. Dorothy and Sam kept a family camping tradition going for many generations. Dorothy enjoyed assembling jigsaw puzzles and reading library books. She rode her bicycle to the library after giving up driving. She kept up with family and friends via old-fashioned letter writing. Perhaps most notable about Dorothy was her steadfast duty to help; she donated to charities and took in family members who needed extra help. Dorothy is survived by sons; Peter Freeman, his wife Anna, of Houston, MO, and Paul Freeman, his wife Donna of Red Bluff; brother Bob Steel, his wife Marge of Red Bluff; and 7 grandchildren; and 9 great-grandchildren.
