Dora spent her summers in Dinuba as a Field Boss farming grapes for Frank Williams, and as the Floor Lady at the Ananian Brother tomato packing house. During the school year Dora served as a teacher’s aide at Jefferson Elementary School. Dora later spent her retirement enjoying her grandchildren, always making them the focus of her life.
