Dorla met her true love in California, married and was the mother of two children, Greg and Michelle.

Dorla had many loves that included anything to do with the outdoors, fishing, painting and dancing to “Pretty Woman” by Roy Orbison. Dorla was a zealous lover of painting and started later in life. Being self-taught, Dorla painted in many mediums with watercolors being her favorite. She was also a member of the Allied Arts Association and has painted more than 200 pieces of work. Her art has been on display for sale at Sno Road Winery and various other cities throughout Oregon and Washington.

Dorla worked in the restaurant industry for over 30 years, owning her own restaurants and catering businesses.

Dorla is survived by her daughter Michelle Murray of Hermiston, Ore.; her grandson Ryan Murray and his wife Mariah; and four great-grandchildren, Dakota Stoneburner and Connor, Colby and Kennda Murray.
