Feb. 12. 1949-Nov. 15, 2020

Dorothy Moore, 71,

Minot, ND, passed away

Sunday, November 15,

2020, at Trinity Hospital

in Minot.

Dorothy Jane McCombs

was born February 12,

1949, the daughter of

Francis and Marian (La-

zier) McCombs in Rugby

North Dakota. Dorothy

was raised and educated

in Towner, where she gra-

duated from Towner High

School in 1967.

Dorothy was once mar-

ried to Dennis Moore.

They made their home in

Minot but also lived in

Bakersfield CA for a short

time before returning to

Minot, where they started

their family. From this

union, 2 daughters,

Michelle Moore and Tara

Miller, were born.

Dorothy attended beauty

school and worked as a

car hop at the local A&W.

She started working at the

Minot Air Force Base

Credit Union in 1971,

where she continued to

work until her retirement

in October 2011. Dorothy

loved her work at the

credit union. She made

many friends over the

course of her 40-year

career. After her retire-

ment, she had a few

health issues and we

needed to find some extra

help. We found the best

helper that turned out to

be an even better friend to

Dorothy. Dawn was an

absolute blessing in dis-


Dorothy enjoyed watch-

ing sports and was the

biggest fan of the Min-

nesota Twins and Min-

nesota Vikings. If they

were playing, she was

watching for sure.

Dorothy’s grandchildren

meant the world to her.

She was so immensely

proud of them. She loved

watching Alyea march in

the Gold Star Marching

Band for the NDSU Bison.

She loved it when Nevaeh

and Gaige would come to

visit her or when they

would tag along for a Sa-

turday shopping trip to

Target. Deep down

Dorothy always wanted a

son. When her youngest

daughter, Tara met and

married Milton, she final-

ly had the son she had al-

ways wanted. In fact,

Michelle and Tara are still

convinced that Milton

was the favorite. Family

was especially important

to Dorothy and she will be

missed by so many.

Her loving family in-

cludes: her daughters,

Michelle Moore (Oneil

Nembhard) and Tara Mill-

er (Milton Miller);

grandchildren, Alyea

Miller, Nevaeh Miller, and

Gaige Miller; siblings: Ida

Stewart, Oregon, Robert

(Patty) McCombs, Town-

er, ND, Beverly (Jerry)

Goodman, Upham, ND;

and several nieces,

nephews and cousins.

Dorothy was preceded

in death by her parents,

an infant brother; and sis-

ter, Lois Jones.
