Dorothy Marie Logan passed away on Oct. 20, 2012, at the age of 85 after a valiant battle with cancer. She died at home surrounded by her family.
Dorothy was born Jan. 30, 1927, to Joe and Della Garcia in San Luis Obispo, Calif. For health reasons, her family packed their belongings in the 1930s and moved to Mohave County. They lived down on the Big Sandy near Wikieup, where Mom and her brother and sister attended a one-room schoolhouse.
The family moved to Kingman, where Dorothy eventually married George Alfred Logan and had two sons.
She helped her husband start a truck stop, "Olie & Jacks Flying A." After her husband passed away, she worked for Yellow Front until the store closed its doors.
Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, George "Olie" Logan; her parents, Joe and Della Garcia; two brothers, Bob Davies and David Garcia; and her granddaughter, Kim Logan.
She is survived by her sons, George (Bonnie) Logan and Leonard (Vickie) Logan. She is also survived by two sisters, Ethel (Pete) Tomiello and Rita (Ronnie) Wienke; her brother, Joseph Garcia; and long-time companion Ellis Mullenax. Dorothy leaves behind five grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Mom will be missed by all of us, but we are happy she is free of pain and with her departed family and friends.
A graveside service will be at 1 p.m., Monday, Oct. 29, at Mountain View Cemetery, 1301 Stockton Hill Road.
