Friends gathered at Gardner's Chapel in White Salmon last Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. to say a last farewell to Doris E. Biesanz who passed away on January 28 following surgery at Emmanuel hospital in Portland, Oregon.
Dora was born June 7, 1922 in Franklin County, Nebraska and moved to this area over 25 years ago. Her school years were spent in Kearney, Nebraska. She worked at many things during her lifetime, but she will be remembered mostly as a loving wife and mother and devoted grandmother.
The outdoors was her hobby and during the spring and summer she would either be working in her yard and garden or playing a great game of golf at Husum Hills where she and her husband, Merle (better known as "BZ"), were longtime members.
Her surviving family are: her husband, Merle; two daughters, Meredith B. Windom of Lynwood, Washington and Connie M. Warneke of Portland, Oregon; two sons, Brian M. Biesanz of Anchorage, Alaska and Nolan S. Biesanz of Vista, California; her father, Marion F. Williams of Kearney, Nebraska; one sister, Dorothy Logan of White Salmon; 2 brothers, Leo Williams of White Salmon and Denny Williams of Olympia, Washington; and 9 grandchildren. Preceding her in death were her mother and one sister who died in infancy.
Rev. Frederick Haag of the Bethel Congregational Church officiated at the service and interment was at the White Salmon Cemetery. Pall bearers were Francis Logan, Joe Driver, Bob Meresse, Harold Lewis, Tony Loy and Howard Koch. Dick Norris served as alternate.
