Dorothy Lee Barnard

Funeral services for Dorothy Lee Barnard, 93, Oregon City, Oregon and formerly of West Plains, were Saturday, March 13, 2010, in the Rose Chapel, Robertson-Drago Funeral Home. Mrs. Barnard passed away Thursday, March 4, 2010, in Oregon City, Oregon. She was born Dec. 4, 1916, in Tupelo, Ark., to Victor and Willie Horton Jaggers. She married James Franklin (Frank) Barnard on June 1, 1935, at Tupelo, Ark., and the young couple left Arkansas to make their home in St. Louis, Mo. They had two children, James, born in 1936, and Patricia, born in 1943. Dorothy and Frank were married almost 60 years at his death in 1995. In 1973, Dorothy and Frank moved to a small farm near Caulfield, Mo., which the grandchildren and great-grandchildren loved to visit as they were growing up. A big vegetable garden, playing croquet in the yard, swimming in the "bayou," the presence of animals, and great home cooking, are memories her grandchildren will always cherish. Dorothy loved her family and extended family. She also loved animals; she always had a pet dog and took in the homeless cats whenever they showed up. Dorothy moved to West Plains in 1996 following the death of her husband, and she regularly attended the Second Baptist Church. She resided in West Plains until May 2009, when she moved to Oregon to be with her daughter and family. Dorothy's health began to decline soon after she arrived in Oregon. During the remaining months of her life, her family provided much comfort with their presence. She is survived by her daughter, Patricia Guthrie and husband, Joe Grosh; grandchildren, Dave Guthrie and wife, Christina Blatchford, Heather Guthrie and husband Gil Parker, Karen Maza and Jimmy Barnard and wife, Ashley; great-grandchildren, Ellie, Christy, Jennifer, Kathi and Alexandria; niece, Marilee Barnard; and many great-nephews and great-nieces. Dorothy is preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Frank; son, James; sister, Evelyn; half-sister, Shelba Jean; and nephew, Billy. She will be missed. Burial will be in Amy Cemetery.
