Obituary for Dorothy Cort

Dorothy L. Cort began a long, eventful life on October 30, 1924 near Bristow, Oklahoma, the second of four daughters born to James and Jewell Legg. They moved often following oil exploration until the second world war began in 1941. In 1942, the family moved to California where she began work at Douglas Aircraft. There she met and married Norman G. Cort, Jr., (US Navy) in 1944. After the war, they bought a home in Redondo Beach, California where their three sons were born. In January 1956, they transferred from California to a new oil refinery in Anacortes, Washington and settled on Whidbey Island for 33 years. Their three sons, Steven, John and Larry, grew up at Penn Cove and graduated from Oak Harbor High School in 1966, 1970 and 1973.

In 1963, she began work at the U.S. Naval Air Station on Whidbey Island and remained there for 20 years, the last five spent as Budget Officer.

In 1989, after she and husband Norman retired, they moved from Whidbey Island to Semiahmoo near Blaine, WA which they enjoyed until she lost her husband of 52 years. She remained there until 2001 when she began traveling with long-time friend Clayton “Smokey” Hoover. They were later married and moved to Wickenburg, AZ to enjoy life on 2 ½ acres of horse property, traveling the world and visiting families in Washington, Idaho and Oklahoma. She lost Smokey in 2013 and she sold their property and returned to Oak Harbor after 25 years.

Preceding her in death were son John (1972), husband Norman (1996), husband “Smokey” (2013), and son Larry (2015). She is survived by son Steven and wife Sharon (Enumclaw, WA), three grandchildren, Wendy (Boston, MA), Kristine (Renton, WA) and Michael (Enumclaw, WA), two great-granddaughters, Alessa and Aria, one sister, Pat Kulbeth (Guthrie, OK) a stepdaughter in-law, Claudia Urquhart and a stepson in-law, Gary Schuyten and families.

She made Regency her home on Whidbey Island and appreciated the kindness of the staff and making new friends.

Private burial services will be held at Maple Leaf Cemetery.
