Dorothy Mae Standlee

Dorothy Mae Standlee left this earth to live with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Aug. 28, 2016 in Clovis, Calif. Dorothy was born in Greene County, Mo. on Sept. 2, 1933, to Luther and Alta Bryan. When she was a small child her family moved to California and settled in the Reedley/Sanger area. She met and married Bob Standlee from Sanger and had four children. In 1971, they moved to Mariposa and eventually settled in Ahwahnee.

Dorothy had a grand sense of adventure and loved to travel. She went camping on the beach with her children and grandchildren every year up until just a few years ago. She traveled with Bob for his work and met many friends along the way. She was always planning her next trip as soon as she got home.

Her favorite thing to do was spend time with family. She was the ultimate homemaker. She loved the holidays and would have large gatherings for every occasion. She also loved to decorate. Every season and holiday meant that the house would be completely redecorated, which means she also loved to shop. She spent as much time as she possibly could with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, attending every event and special occasion. She left a legacy of a great life, a lot of love and so many laughs.

She was preceded in death by her Parents, six siblings, her husband Bob Standlee; sons, Bobby Jr, and Dennis; and son in-law Jimmy.

Those she has left behind miss her every minute. Sister Patsy Miller ( James); daughter Charity Phillips; son Chad Standlee; grandchildren Jaycee Smith (Preston), Michael Phillips (Amber), Michelle Rounsivill (Greg), J.T. Phillips (Sam), Kourtni McLaughlin ( Jeremy), Chelsee Albright and Bobby Standlee (Amber); 15 great-grandchildren and many beloved nieces, nephews and friends.

Services will be held at the Mariposa Lutheran Church on Oct. 1, 2016 at 1 p.m. Fellowship and luncheon immediately following in the Lutheran Church’s Hansen Hall .
