Dorothy (Dot) Ruth Hathaway
02/13/1921 – 08/13/2017
Dot was born in St. Helens Oregon on February 13, 1921. She passed away Sunday August 13th, 2017. She is preceded in death by her husband Wayne of 79 years, her parents Charlie and Dora Smith, her siblings Bernice and her husband Gene, Carl and his wife Stella, Evert and his wife Elsie, Verna and her husband Elmer, Barbara and her husband Fred. She is survived by her two daughters, Connie Carnagey, Jeannette Harrop and her husband Ron. Two grandsons, Joseph Carnagey and his wife Annitta, Philip Carnagey and his wife Angie. Also, many nieces and nephews.
Dot was a devoted wife, mother, aunt and many other titles. She fully supported her husband Wayne in his many endeavors over the years. She camped with him and cooked while he was logging. She operated a laundromat while Wayne worked operating heavy equipment. When Wayne was invited to volunteer at the headquarters of Jehovah’s Witnesses in New York, she went along and volunteered too. She worked in the laundry and had many stories to share about the experience. Wayne was invited to be the caretaker of the Assembly Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Woodburn Oregon and Dot was happy to do her part. While there, they not only cared for the facility, they both provided hospitality for many traveling overseers and their wives, also many representatives from Headquarters in New York.
Dot was an excellent cook and she loved to prepare meals for her friends and family. She was well known for her peanut butter cookies, her whole-wheat gems that she baked in a cast iron gem iron and many other dishes.
Dot will be greatly missed, but we look forward to seeing her again in the resurrection recorded at John 5: 28, 29. “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” She loved to share this hope with others whenever she could. Over the years she was very active as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She studied the Bible with many people and encouraged her family to do the same. Many in her family are or have been full time evangelizers because of her and Wayne’s excellent example.
There will be a memorial for Dot on September 9th at 2 PM at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Baker City located at 975 S Bridge St. For those who would like to make a memorial donation in memory of Dot may do so to www.jw.org.
