Lillie Al-Doori

Lillie Elizabeth Al-Doori passed away peacefully Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at Woodland Nursing and Rehabilitation. Lillie was born July 23, 1930 in Crescent, Iowa.

She lived in Baghdad, Iraq for several years where she worked for American Friends of the Middle East, and developed a deep interest in archeology and the local history. She enjoyed family excursions to Woodland Park (Seattle, WA) and camping trips at Mount Rainier and Yellowstone National Park. A lifelong democrat, she had worked for JFK's presidential campaign while living in Columbia, Missouri. Lillie settled in Davis, California in 1978 where she ran a private daycare while also enjoying her grandchildren. She loved reading, volunteered at Yolo County Library, and took great joy in her grandchildren and great- grandchild.

She leaves behind five children, seven grandchildren, one great-grandchild, nephews, nieces, and friends.

Many happy memories of walks in parks, sleepovers, apricot banana bread, adventures in the backyard, and lots and lots of books. I greatly miss her.
