Dollie Sue King
She grew up in California and would attend Community College and met John Henry King on a blind date. The two were married on November 14, 1953.They would have three children, Pamela in 1954, James in 1956 and Douglas in 1967. They raised their family in California for 14 years before deciding to move to Newberg, Oregon in 1971. They would find comfort in a loving community with new friends and organizations, and would continue their faith here at Newberg First Presbyterian Church.
Dollie's first job in Newberg was Stouffer's Department Store on Main Street. She also worked at Loren Berg Chevrolet and took on several other odd jobs before settling in at A-DEC where she would later retire after 24 years in 2002. She made many lasting friends and always looked forward to Christmas breakfast with her former coworkers at the Flying "M" Ranch.
Dollie had many hobbies like gardening, collecting antiques and entertaining. She was involved in church with teaching Sunday school, enjoying retreats and especially serving as a Deacon. The King family became known for their Annual Christmas Eve party that would follow the Christmas Eve service at church. In her later years she would travel the world with friends she met while serving with Sertoma, which meant "Service to Mankind". They would venture to Ireland, Scotland, New Zealand, and a Cruise on the Seine. Her last trip was on a Russian cruise going along the Volga River.
Dollie is preceded in death by her husband, John H. King, daughter Pamela Zengel, sister Martha Spencer and half brother Ronald Millard. She is survived by her sons, James (Debbie),
Douglas (Susan), 5 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
