Dorothy Fell Kramer
November 21, 2012
Dorothy Fell Kramer, beloved wife and mother, and longtime resident of Issaquah, died peacefully in her sleep on Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012, after her battle with cancer.
She was born in Rigby, Idaho, on Nov. 24, 1931, the third of six children. She married Sam Kramer in 1952 in Boise, and moved directly to the Seattle area, where they eventually settled in Issaquah, in 1960. Together, they raised their eight children in love and hard work.
Dorothy spent her years cheering her children’s budding talents and was their greatest advocate. She had a pioneering spirit, and she was a lifelong learner who enjoyed sharing her knowledge with others. She was an avid gardener, and was happiest with her hands in the dirt. She loved her family most of all, and delighted in every one of their accomplishments.
She was preceded in death by her husband Sam, her parents and siblings, her granddaughter and great grandson.
She is survived by her children Debbie, Gretchen, Sam, Becky, Bill, John, Laura and Jason; her sister Susan Burns; 24 grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren.
As a faithful and beloved member of the LDS church, she served with a willing heart all the days of her life.
A funeral will be held to celebrate her life on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012, at 11 a.m. The service will be held at the LDS chapel at 1100 Sixth Ave. S.E. in Issaquah.
