January 12, 1921-April 20, 2013
Doris Elizabeth Dobbs passed away April 20, 2013. There will be no services held at this time.
Doris was born Jan. 12, 1921 in Ohio to two German parents, Albert Gilberthorpe Anschutz and Ella (Fletcher) Anschutz. In her early 20s, she married Roland Miller and had two boys, Eric and Gregory Miller. Eric died in his 50s of heart failure and Gregory has retired in Talawan with his wife Teena. When the boys were young, Doris and Roland divorced. Doris later married Roy Stanley Madden Jr., and had a daughter Linda (Madden) Cline. After Roy died in 1965, Doris and Linda relocated to Prineville, where Doris married Oscar Dobbs. Together they built a house by Ochoco Reservoir, primarily reusing supplies from the demolished original Ochoco Ranger Station. Later in life, they sold this home and built a retirement home on an acre behind this home, again reusing discarded materials. Oscar and Doris were active Prinevillites for 40 years. Doris volunteered at the Neat Repeat for over 10 years, as well as volunteering at Pioneer Memorial Hospital in Prineville.
She and Oscar enjoyed square dancing, garage sales, attending Mill Creek Grange meetings, and attending monthly game night in the rural neighborhood. Doris was very social and giving, despite the ailments which finally took her. She will be missed by many.
