Dorothy Helen, the daughter of Lewis and Eva (Miller) Stump, was born August 28, 1924 in Linden, Iowa. She began working for Denison and Partridge Lumber Company after graduating from Linden High School.  Dorothy married Richard L. Tate, Sr. in 1945.  They moved to Des Moines in 1960, and she began working at Bankers Life.  Together, they owned several gas stations, a grocery store, restaurant, and Bingo parlors at various times.  Dorothy loved to play Bingo and cook for family get-togethers.

 

Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; daughter, Diane Schroeder; grandson, Jesse; and three sisters: Darline Goodrich, Hazel Stump, and Corrinne McDonald.

 

Dorothy is remembered by her sons: Richard L. Tate, Jr.(Barb) and Ronald A. Tate (Jacque); ten grandchildren; and 19 great-grandchildren.
