Roper, 87, died Novem- ber 1, 2017, at her home in La Grande, Oregon. The team at Heart Dolores ‘N Home Roper Hospice provided her and the family with wonderful, loving care and support through her ﬁnal days. A celebration of Dolores’s life was held on Wednesday, November 8, 2017, from 5-8 p.m. at Community Connection of NE Oregon (La Grande Se- nior Center), and featured a buffet dinner and live music. Dolores was born on July 13, 1930, in Monroe, Or- egon to Marcus and Lena Susan (McCoy) Brittain. Dolores joined an already large family of four broth- ers and one sister: Chancy, Thelma, Ralph and Thomas (Tom) Conaway, and Francis (Roy) Brittain. She lived in Sumpter, Oregon and Baker City, Oregon, and held a variety of jobs before getting mar- ried, including cooking for logging camps and work- ing as a telephone operator. She was a lifelong learner, an avid reader, and enjoyed poetry and literature. She married Thomas G. Roper September 27, 1952, and they had two daughters, Donnell J. Shariat and Linda S. O’Meara. Dolores was known as a great cook who could whip up a large meal in no time. She baked the best pies and rolls, and has a few blue ribbons from the Union County Fair to prove it. Her heart and home were always open to others, and one of her proudest moments was when she and her husband Tom were recognized for their years as foster parents in 1986 by then-Governor Vic Atiyeh. She was an active mem- ber of the community, and belonged to many organi- zations and social groups over the years including the Union County Demo- crats, United Methodist Women, Union County Historical Society, Red Hat Society, and several bunco groups. Dolores loved her time as a lay speaker for the Methodist church, and carefully planned out each of her sermons to not only relay information, but to entertain and captivate the audience. She became or- dained to perform marriage ceremonies, and proudly ofﬁciated at her daughter Linda’s wedding last year. She took up painting in her early seventies, and had a way of making each of her beautiful paintings have a cozy, warm feel, just like her home. Dolores is survived by her brother Tom Conaway of Durkee, Oregon; her daughters, Donnell J Shar- iat of Dallas, Texas and Linda O’Meara of Middle- ton, Idaho; her grandchil- dren, Lory Sansinena of Boise, Idaho, Ruby Cash of Boise, Idaho, Penny Be- lyeu of Philomath, Oregon, Hanniel John of Austin, Texas, Jonathan Shariat of San Francisco, California, and Michelle Overmyer of Austin, Texas; and her great-grandchildren, Kacy McLeod of Corvallis, Ore- gon; and Amber, Paige and Kyle Belyeu of Philomath, Oregon; numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Mar- cus and Lena; her siblings Chancy, Thelma, Ralph, and Roy; her beloved husband, Tom; and her childhood friend Mary El- len Morin, with whom she shared a birthday. In lieu of ﬂowers, contributions can be made in memory of Dolores to Haven from Hunger (541- 786-FOOD) or the Animal Rescue and Adoption Center of Eastern Oregon/ Blue Mountain Humane Association through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home PO Box 543 Halfway, Oregon 97834.
