Dora had many accomplishments. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and Order of the Amaranth. She was very active in the Boy Scouts of America, where she served as a lead cub scout pack and the District Training Representative in Omaha, Nebraska. In addition to serving as District Training Representative, she also earned the Boy Scout’s Silver Arrow award as well as the coveted Silver Beaver award.

Dora was also involved with the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, where for many years she served as an advisor for the girls of Harbor City Assembly #83 in Melbourne, Florida. She was later asked to serve as Grand Deputy to oversee all assemblies in Brevard County.
The girls lovingly called her “Mom Wi” and she remained in that position for many years. She was also honored to serve as a member of the Senior Grand Executive Committee and later representing her home assembly as State Mother Advisor.
Mom Wi loved Rainbow Girls, and the Rainbow Girls loved Mom Wi. She stayed in touch with many of the girls over the years and had the opportunity to see them grow up and use many of the skills and lessons they learned from Rainbow Girls to become amazing women.
