Dori was born November 7, 1956, in California, the daughter of Doyle and Ruth (Wilson) Rapp. She grew up in Albuquerque, NM, later moving to Bismarck. She graduated from Bismarck High School in 1974, and then headed to college for the next two years. Dori later began working for MDU Resources in the bookkeeping department. She spent the next 20 years with MDU, opting for an early retirement. In retirement, she owned and operated “Beadchicks” until her failing health prevented her from continuing.
She made Mandan her home until 2019 when she moved to Dickinson and helped care for her mother. She enjoyed reading, listening to Elvis Presley, and doing all kinds of crafts. She loved working with her hands. She especially cherished hanging out with her friends and family.
Dori is survived by her mother, Ruth of Dickinson; brother Roger “Skip” Rapp of Dickinson, nieces and nephews Tyler Rapp of Tioga, Courtney Evoniuk of Dickinson, Kevin Tipton of Nebraska, Harley Rapp of Dickinson, and Crystal Rapp of Dickinson.
Dori is preceded in death by her father Doyle; her brother Richard “Dick”; and nephew Keith.
