HERMISTON - A funeral service for Lolita "Darlyne" Botts will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Oct. 1, in the chapel at Burns Mortuary of Hermiston with burial to follow at the Hermiston Cemetery.
Mrs. Botts, 66, died Saturday, Sept. 25, 2004, at her home in Hermiston.
She was born May 26, 1938, at Waitsburg, Wash., to Robert Olin and Lois May Montgomery Mills.
Although she spent many of her early years between Waitsburg and Wallula, she was a resident of the Hermiston area the remainder of her life.
On April 30, 1965, she married Robert "Bob" Stanley Botts at Lewiston, Idaho.
Mrs. Botts was a homemaker and stay-at-home mom. It was said she would be remembered for her remarkable talents as a seamstress, cook and gardener who enjoyed sharing her many talents with others, not only with sisters, sisters-in-laws and friends, but her joy for sharing and teaching resulted in a number of grandchildren with talents that will soon rival hers.
Survivors include daughters, Kymberli Botts Peterman of Hermiston, Trasci Botts Cox of Boardman, Linda Harig Davis of Lynnwood, Wash., and Anita Harig of Snohomish, Wash.; brothers, William Mills and Robert Mills, sister, Fran Thoms; grandsons, Daniel Fenner and Dakoda Cazier and granddaughters, Saydi Cazier, Danielle Terrabochia Crystal Terrabochia, Samantha Cox, Trisha Cox, and Gabrielle Cox. Mrs. Botts was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Stanley Botts, by her parents, Robert and Lola Mills, and by sisters, Marge Bishop, Zola Houston and adopted sister, Lois Mills.
