1921 - 2013


Dorothy M. Kellogg was born on January 15, 1921, in Baltimore, Maryland. She spent her childhood in Wheeling, West Virginia. After graduating high school she attended Madison College Tennessee School of Nursing, where she earned her

R.N. degree and met her future husband Robert D. Kellogg. Dorothy married Robert after he was drafted into the Army during World War II. While her new husband was overseas, she worked as a nurse for the Union Pacific Railroad in Tacoma, WA. After the war, Dorothy continued nursing at Portland Adventist Hospital while Robert attended University of Oregon School of Dentistry. The family putdown roots in College Place along Garrison Creek.

Dorothy was a long time member of the Seventh-day-Adventist University Church. Among her interests were jogging, (she ran a marathon at the age of fifty-seven), swimming, snow skiing, water skiing, baking bread, playing the piano, writing and visiting with dear friends. She will be remembered by many in the valley for her “creek parties” a picnic for many class rooms of grade school children. Dorothy had a very special spot in her heart for her beloved Priest Lake, Idaho. The family has been going there since the mid 1950’s and have enjoyed its beauty, serenity and have shared many wonderful memories over the decades.

Dorothy is survived by her four children; Dr. Donald Kellogg and wife Linda, Dr. Richard Kellogg and wife Sue, Kathy (Kellogg) Grellmann and husband Erwin, Dr. David Kellogg and wife Desiree. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Dr. Julie (Kellogg) Thompson and husband Phil, Carson and Elise Grellmann, Ashley and Ryan Kellogg and Chloe and Aidan Kellogg.
