Dora Lee grew up on a farm in rural Clark County and she enjoyed being a farm girl, including milking cows and all of the chores associated with farm life and being "daddy’s girl"! She liked to work in her yard and especially mowing after working all day in an office and following her retirement. She loved antiquing, auctions, and motorcyle rides,

She was raised in the "old school era" where you worked hard, you took care of your family and offered hospitality to others. She was also a hands on mom and loved birthdays, Christmas, and being with her family.
