Dorothy May Redel, born January 17, 1922, in St. Louis. While managing a major hotel, she met her husband Raymond after WWII. Moved to San Diego in 1953, where she resided for 59 years. She continued working as an accountant and raised her family. She relocated several times: Hawaii, Mexico, San Francisco, but she always returned to San Diego. 

After some major convincing and a trip to God’s Country, she relocated to enjoy the past six months admiring the beauty of the forest, rivers, and residents of Del Norte County.

Dorothy joined her husband Raymond on March 3, 2013, and is survived by Thomas and Luz Redel, Michael and Tonda Redel, grandson Christopher and Mayte Redel, and two great-grandchildren.
