Dorothy Tafel/Gillihan Nyhuise:

Wife of Elmer Austin Gillihan
Wife of John Albert Nyhuise
Buried with John


Dorothy married young and at age 15 gave birth to her first child Gordon. Wayne and Sandra followed. After nine years of marriage Dorothy and Elmer were divorced.

Dorothy and her second Husband John were the parents of one Daughter, Glenda.

Dorothy and John settled in Washington state and there they raised their children, welcomed Grandchildren amd Great Grandchildren.

Dorothy spent her last years in a Yakima nursing home near her Daughter, Glenda and Son in Law Dennis.

Dorothy was a wonderfully kind and compassionate lady. She was adored by everyone who met her.
She will be missed by all of us who loved her but we find peace in knowing that she is now pain free and once again resides with her loved ones.
