Dorothy is the daughter of the late Fenton and Mary Frehner. She married Verland Leslie Thurston and has been a widow since his passing in 1980. The Matriarch of a large family, Dorothy’s allegiance has been to God, family, and country. She has an exceptional affinity to music, learning, youth, the earth’s beauty, and the scriptures.
Her two lifelong themes were: “Happiness is a choice,” and the scripture, ``This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
Dorothy was preceded in death by her son Brent, and her brothers Dale, Verl, Greme, and Alfred.
She is survived by her children Brad (Alice), Brent’s widow Laurie, Duane (Kimberly), Darla, and Dorea (John), 22 grandchildren, 49 great grandchildren, and her siblings Mary Lynn, Lana, Klint, Creed, Bryce and Kimi.
