Dori Randall: Champion for children, theater

Dori Randall was known as “Miss Dori” by hundreds of children who visited the public library or participated in local theater. In April, nearly 100 people attended a ceremony to rename the theater she founded to the Dori Randall Performing Arts Center.

Brookings resident Dori Randall, who influenced the lives of countless children and adults during nearly 20 years of community volunteer work, died Saturday after a 10-month battle with breast cancer. She was 59.

Randall, known by many as “Miss Dori,” was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and left Brookings in July 2015 to be with family in Colorado, where she received medical treatment and eventually hospice. She died peacefully in her sleep, according to family members.

Her death, while expected by many, left her friends and acquaintances mourning the loss and recalling their favorite experiences with Randall.

The entire length of Highway 101 on the Oregon Coast has been designated as a memorial highway and two of 10 road signs honoring U.S. veterans of Middle East wars were unveiled Monday in Harbor and Port Orford.

“It’s a wonderful way to honor our veterans who have served our country,” said Tony Voudy, officer for Curry County Veteran’s Services (CCVS), which purchased the signs.

“Oregon is the only state that dedicates their highways in honor of their veterans, and the conflicts in which they served,” Voudy said.
