It is with profound sorrow and heavy heart, that we share with you the sad news that Theodora ``Dori” Rolinda Siers age 77 passed away peacefully, surrounded by loved ones on Monday, October 12, 2020 at Campbell County Memorial Hospital.  Dori was born on April 23, 1943 to Frank and Lillian (Allman) Siers of Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Dori went to school at Holy Rosary Mission. She had 12 siblings who she dearly loved and cherished. She often shared childhood memories about them with her own children. Dori began her family in 1963 and became the proud mother of eight children (5 boys and 3 girls) over a span of 15 years. In 1998 Dori opened her life to the Gospel when she was baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins according to the book of Acts 2:38, her faith and love for God continued to grow and shine through to all of her family and friends whom she passionately and selflessly served.  Dori was a cheerful giver of all that she had, and her desire was to see each and every one of her children happy and fulfilled.  Dori’s meek and humble spirit was immediately evident to anyone who met her, and she was adored by many whom she met during her journey here on earth.  One of Dori’s career highlights include, attaining her certification as a nursing assistant which she used to care for the elderly in her community working in home health care and long-term care. She was well known for her compassionate care for her patients. Dori had a passion for reading and a talent for writing. While attending college she was recognized for her ability to write short stories. She used her artistic talent and her creative ability to bless her children and grandchildren with many beautiful and memorable gifts. She was always up for a good game of scrabble and on occasion, she would allow one of her children to win. Dori was preceded in death by her late husband Jim Vargas, infant son John Paul Vargas, brother William Siers and sister Darlene Young. Dori is survived by her children, Stacy Storkamp, Spencer Richards, Sheldon Richards, Sheree Aston, LeAnne Brewer, Carlos Vargas, James Vargas and Cory Vargas. Her grandchildren, Rick Briscoe, Cyril Storkamp, Nicholas Storkamp, Jenna Richards, Jonah Richards, Jacob Richards, Josie Richards, Kayla Richards, Cassie Aston, LaShae Bruce, Brylee Barbour, Payton Barbour, Mason Sundstrom, Kaullen Sundstrom, Tresa Dilts and her great grandchildren, Kaylie Briscoe, Alina Briscoe, Miley Briscoe, Jace Briscoe, Grace Briscoe, Oliva Storkamp, Lilah Storkamp, Weston Williams, Jalyn Mastin, Arkaya Clausen, Landon Bruce, Logan Boardman, Lynley Bruce, Benjamin Barbour and Colter Barbour.
