Obituary for Dorothy Jean Bovey
Dorothy Jean Bovey June 2, 1936 - Feb. 5, 2010 Dorothy Jean Bovey went home to be with her Lord on Feb. 5, 2010 with her family at her bedside. She was 73. Dorothy was born in Springer, OK on June 2, 1936 to Euliss and Irene (Day) McAnally. She grew up there and in Kansas before moving to Colorado. She later moved to the San Francisco Bay area where she worked for Bell Telephone before going to work at Owens-Illinois Glass in Oakland. She would work there for many years, retiring as crew leader in the late 80's. During her time there, Dorothy also was very active in the union. She married Elden Bovey on June 15, 1978 in Reno, NV. The two moved to Harbor in 1990. Dorothy loved to quilt and spent most of her time making quilt donations for local orphanages and whoever else needed them through Quilting for Christ. She was a member of the First Community Baptist Church in Brookings. She also enjoyed crocheting and taking care of her home. Most of all, though, Dorothy loved to share her faith and the hope that she found in her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Survivors include her husband, Elden Leroy of Harbor, son, Michael McGee of Harbor, daughters, Rose Norton of Modesto, CA, and Teresa Travis of Hayward, CA, grandchildren, Anglique, Amy, Vicky Lynn, Jennifer, Christopher, Jeremy, Hannah and Kelly, and eight great grandchildren. Dorothy was preceded in death by her brother, Danny Ray McAnally and stepdaughter, Debra Ann Borrelli. Memorial contributions may be made to the Friends of Curry County Hospice, PO Box 382, Gold Beach, OR 97444 or to the American Cancer Society. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday (today), Feb. 10, 2010 at 1:00pm at the First Community Baptist Church, 607 Pacific Ave. in Brookings. A reception will follow there.
