February 16, 1926 - August 7, 2017
Dorothy C. Talley, 91, passed, and joined her loving husband, Ollie, in Heaven, August 7, 2017. She was born February 16, 1926 in Boston, Massachusetts. She was the eighth child of 10 born to Pierce and Mary Dwyer, and she was the last surviving sibling. She met Dad while working at a soda fountain in Boston and they were married two years later. Their son, Jim was born February 19, 1945. By the late '40s, Dad had finally convinced Mom to move back near his family in Hemet, California. They lived in Hemet until 1965 when they relocated to Medford. Mom was a devoted homemaker and took great joy in a clean house. She was dedicated to her family’s success.
Dottie and Ollie started attending the Apostolic Church in 1970. They devoted their lives to serving the Lord, and their faith brought them much joy throughout their 67 married years.
Dottie is survived by her son, Jim and his partner, Tom of Medford; many nieces and nephews in Massachusetts and California; as well as her dear friends she enjoyed so much.
There will be a service to celebrate her life Saturday, August 12, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at the Apostolic Church on Sunrise Ave. in Medford.
