Dorothy Marie Ray

June 25, 1935-February 14, 2013

Dorothy Ray passed away on February 14, 2013 at her home in El Dorado, CA, after a very long battle with cancer. She was surrounded by her loved ones.  Dorothy was born in Hamlin Iowa, on June 25, 1935. Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents Thelma and Chris Petersen, and husband of 49 years, John. She is survived by her daughters Nancy Bandy (Tim) of El Dorado and Christy Ray-Hagenau (Bill) of San Jose, CA. and niece Alexandra Rechs (Dave) of Sacramento whom she considered a daughter. The joys of her life were her grandchildren Trenton and Ethan Bandy, Dietrich and Astrid Hagenau and great nephew and niece Joshua and Kennedy Rechs. She is also survived by her sisters Ellen Yevdakimov of Placerville, Margaret Janssen of Grand Island, Nebraska, and Shirley Petersen of Omaha, Nebraska as well as dozens of nieces and nephews.

Dorothy attended X-Ray training in Greely, Colorado and was an X-ray technician for more than 27 years. She worked 21 years at Marshall Hospital before retiring in 1986. She married her late husband, John, in Torrance CA in 1959.  They moved to El Dorado in 1965 and made a home, raised a family and started John’s welding business Ray’s Welding as well as their storage business Ray’s Stor-All at their property near the El Dorado “Y”. Their success allowed them to travel in their motorhome with area friends before grandchildren were born. Her family was her world.

A memorial service to celebrate Dorothy’s life will be held at the Chapel of the Pines Funeral Home, 2855 Cold Springs Rd., Placerville at 11:00am on Saturday March 2nd.  The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Dorothy’s name to either Marshall Hospital Foundation at P.O. Box 1996, Placerville, CA 95667, marshallmedical.org or Snowline Hospice at 6520 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA 95619,snowlinehospice.org. Friends may leave condolences and sign an electronic guestbook at www.chapelofthepinesfunerals.com
