Doris Sue (Blair) Parrott, 101, died quietly at home in Hood River, Ore., on Friday, May 11, 2018.
A 10-year resident of Hood River, she was born to Benjamin V. and Myrtle (Brown) Blair on April 21, 1917, on a farm near Lexington, Neb. In 1936, she moved with her family to Ontario, Ore., where she lived most of the rest of her life.
Through the family’s active participation in the First Christian Church of Ontario, she met Floyd Parrott, and they were married in late 1938. They raised two sons, Floyd Jr. and Rodney.
After Floyd Sr.’s death in 1994, Doris moved to the Willamette Valley, living in Keizer, Turner, and Mt. Angel before coming to live with her son and daughter-in-law in Hood River.
In addition to her husband, Floyd Sr., and her son Floyd Jr., she was preceded in death by her parents, her sisters Muriel, Roberta, and Betty, and her brother Arlis. She is survived her son Rodney and daughters-in-law Mary Anne and Sheryl Parrott, three grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and a host of nephews and nieces.
Per her request, no services are planned, but family members will gather when her cremains are interred next to Floyd Sr.’s at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland.
Memorial gifts may be sent in Doris’s name to First Christian Church, 180 N.W. First St., Ontario, OR 97914.
