Dorothy Louise Sprick, 90, of Eugene, Oregon passed away Thursday, September 8. She and her twin brother, Robert, were born in Harrisburg to George and Mary Elva (Miller) McLain.

From the time she was six months old on, Dorothy lived in Corvallis until the fall of 2013. She then moved to the Hunsaker Home, a residence for adult foster care in Eugene.

She graduated from Corvallis High in 1944. She married Dick Sprick upon his return from WWII on October 6, 1946.

Dorothy worked at Variety Bakery on Second Street for many years. Dottie loved getting together with family and friends. Many games of playing Pinochle and Rummy lasted well into the late hours.

She enjoyed entertaining, sewing, and gardening. Many people stopped to enjoy her rows of flowers next to her home on Peoria Road. Her pets and visiting pets always brought joy and excitement to her heart.

Dorothy is survived by their only child, Robert Sprick, and his wife, Diane, of Eugene; three grandsons: Dustin of Apison, TN, Brian and Matthew of Portland; and six great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Dick; parents George and Mary Elva McLain; and twin brother Robert McLain.

No services are planned. Dorothy is buried at Twin Oaks Memorial Gardens. Donations in her behalf can be made to SafeHaven Humane Society: 32220 Old Hwy 34, Tangent, OR 97389.
