Dorothy Jane "Dottie" Bass Obituary
After enjoying a wonderful celebration of life and friendship, Dottie passed away peacefully on September 12, 2018 at Mercy Hospice House in Durango, CO. Dottie was born January 17, 1943 at St. Joseph's Hospital in Albuquerque to Elvin "Johnnie" and Ruth Virginia Bass. Dottie's father was stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas during WWII. Dottie graduated from Highland High in Albuquerque and received a BA in Home Economics from the University of New Mexico in 1965. Dottie worked for Farmers Home Administration (USDA) and Housing and Urban Development for almost 30 years and was an advocate for appropriate housing for all. Dottie lived in Albuquerque, Los Lunas and Taos before moving to Bayfield, Colorado in 2001. Dottie's circle of friends in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado are amazing! Dottie was a wonderful neighbor and friend to all who knew her. Her kindness and compassion will always be remembered. Dottie cherished all of her animal companions; they brought her such joy. Her sweet Ozzie continued to snuggle with her regularly at Mercy Hospice House. Zoe, Max, Poppy and Okie will be buried with her. Dottie will be laid to rest with her parents and grandparents at Sunset Memorial Park in Albuquerque, NM on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 9:30am.
