Keith & Keith Funeral Home

Dorothy left our world on April 27, 2013, for a better place, a more peaceful place to live with those she adores and loves.

Dorothy was born on May 6, 1959 to Felix David Lowe and Earlene Rose (Burrnet) Lowe in Dallas Texas.

Dorothy was surrounded by two loving parents and siblings that made growing up an adventure and at times a comical exercise in survival. Through it all she knew she was always surrounded with love. The Lowe family moved around a lot through the early years but everywhere they went as long as the family was together, everywhere was home.

Dorothy adored spending time with family. The family bond was strong in her; sometimes it was a struggle but the love for family never wavered. She had a strong belief that all would work out; to her time was a great healer. Around her friends the hair came down and the gloves went on. She was loved by everyone who knew her. Most would say she never held back what she had to say either.

Bartending wasn’t a job for Dorothy it was who’s going to get it next - her motto. The patrons she served in 22 years were priceless to her. Pastime in Selah, Van’s Tavern in Naches, Country Rock in Naches, and Curly’s Bar and Grill in Gleed. People knew her and would follow her wherever she ended up next. If you thought you could pull one over on her, you quickly found out you were wrong. She could throw it back at you with a beautiful smile.

Dorothy was an excellent camper. She loved it! Dorothy was beautiful anywhere but she beamed in the outdoors, man that girl could hike. She loved waterfalls; she loved walking on the warm rocks along a river barefoot. She also enjoyed sitting around a campfire shooting the breeze with a bottle of wine with her best friend, her husband Brandon.

Dorothy has many beautiful parts about her. She was most proud of the two parts that came from her, her two daughters Melissa and Nicole. Like her own mother she took pride and spread love to the both of them. But she was firm, and straight forward with her two pride and joys like her father was with her.

That dedication and love produced two good women who now have children of their own. Yep, Doc was a Grandma and with Dorothy’s spirit you could almost feel sorry for the kids.

Dorothy or Doc as some knew her to be was an amazing kind of women, because when you were around her the good times were sure to follow. Dorothy was preceded in death by her father Felix Lowe and her brother DeWayne Lowe. She was survived by, her husband of 21 years Brandon Foran, daughters Melissa & husband Dominic Hale and granddaughter Brooke, Nicole & husband Jesus Gonzalez and two grandsons, J.R. and Nicolas, two step children, step daughter Tawnya & husband Terry Speer & Scott, Emily and Kelsie, step son Clayton Foran and Isacc & Alex Big Brother David and Tanny Lowe, middle brother Donald Lowe, sister Fran Murphy and little sister Lisa Saling, also by her adopted brother and sister, Bruce and Cheryl Matson.

Some of god’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.

Gone now, but never, ever forgotten.
