Dortha was born on December 23, 1925 in Tyronza, Arkansas. Dortha married her sweetheart, Charles Daubitz in 1947 and they had just celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on February 22nd. Dortha worked over 40 years as a registered nurse, she worked as the head nurse at an Alcohol Treatment Center and over 20 years for the same doctor in his private practice. She said she chose to work in a doctor’s office instead of a hospital so she could continue her career and work hours where she could be home with her 3 sons.

Together, Dortha and Charles hosted many foreign exchange students from around the world during their 40 years of living in this community that she was so proud of.
