Dorothy I. Duffield (1952-2019)


February 13, 2019 at 7:55 AM, Dorothy I. Duffield passed away at home with her daughter by her side at 66 years old. She was born on November 28, 1952 in Sacramento, CA to James Underwood and Mami Medford. She was raised in Healdsburg, CA but lived in Williams, CA for the majority of her life.

My mom was a very hard-working woman all her life. She had all sorts of different Jobs throughout her life from working on her mother’s ranch in Healdsburg, CA, professional barrel racing in Calistoga, CA, bottle inspecting at a winery in Napa Valley, raising two kids in Williams, CA, working as a personal assistant, to a private In-Home Care Giver. My mom loved to help others who really needed it. She loved making them happy again to the end of their life. She loved being in her garden of fresh vegetables ranging from corn to herbs, flowers and plants. She had a real green thumb! Being in her garden was her happy place. 

My mom was one of the lucky ones to marry her soulmate. A true love like no other to my father Sammy Duffield. The love they had is not something you come across these days. After being apart for 10 months, they get to be together once again.

Dorothy leaves behind her daughter Jamie Lynn (Jermain), grandchildren Monica Lynn, Damien Jermain, Julian Nicholas, and Lillie Laura Camarena of Williams, CA, her son Christopher (Kerry) and grandchildren Christopher Jr. and Kaitlyn Duffield of Woodland, CA. ■
