Obituary for Carrie Dorotharine Whygle

Carrie Dorotharine Whygle, or Dorothy as she was known by most, died peacefully in McMinnville on Monday July 8th with family by her side at the age of 86.
Dorothy was a devoted mother to four surviving children; Larry Whygle of Dayton, Mike Whygle (Leanne) of Salem, Barbara Braun (Jim) of Dayton, and Cyndy Granger (Randy) of McMinnville. She was predeceased by one son, William Jackson “Jackie” in 1957. She was an adoring Grandma, Granny, Gran, G-ma, and GG to 15 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren and 4 great great grandchildren.
Dorothy was born on July 26th, 1932 in Antlers, Oklahoma to William and Carrie Peoples. She was the eldest of 10 surviving children who often considered her a second mother. She moved to Wheatland when she was 13 and started working not long after finishing the 8th grade to help support her family. Dorothy married CJ Whygle on April 3rd, 1950 in Eloy, Arizona. They settled in the Grand Island area in the 1951 where they raised their four children.
Dorothy was a dedicated and industrious worker. She was employed by many local farmers throughout the years before retiring in 1997 after spending 20 years at Gray & Co. Cherry Plant where she was well known and admired.
Dorothy was passionate about family. She would often host large gatherings cooking southern specialties handed down from her mother including chicken and dumplings, biscuits, and her famous fried chicken. Her greatest joys were her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She cherished every moment, hug, and kiss from her “doll or babe” as she would endearingly refer to them. She was exceptional at making each feel important, precious, and loved. Her pride and support were unwavering!
She was a strong, loyal, kindhearted, generous, compassionate, joyful, and devoted woman who always had a twinkle in her eye and a warm smile on her face. She was the foundation of her family and her legacy will live on through all that were loved by her.
A celebration of life will be held on Saturday July 13th at 4 p.m. at Macy and Son Funeral Home in McMinnville, with Pastor Jared Schroeder officiating. Graveside services will follow at The Hopewell Cemetery then reception and potluck dinner at The Unionvale Countryside Church, 18725 SE Wallace Rd, Dayton. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Dorothy’s life.
