Dorothy DeBorba (Our Gang) 1925 - 2010

Postby Paul E. Gierucki » Thu Jun 03, 2010 2:23 pm

From the WAY OUT WEST Tent Newsletter:

We are saddened to report the passing of longtime Way Out West Tent and Our Gang member Dorothy DeBorba. She has long suffered from emphysema and lung disease, and finally succumbed to her illness on June 2nd. For those who didn't know Dorothy, she played "Echo" in Hal Roach's Our Gang shorts. Dorothy became a member of the Sons of the Desert in 1980, loyally attending banquets in Los Angeles and International Conventions until her health longer allowed her to travel. She was planning on attending the International Convention in Sacramento, which will take place in two weeks. Dorothy will be cremated and there will be no service, but donations may be made in her name to the American Lung Association.

I snapped this picture of Dorothy during a Sons of the Desert convention, circa 1988, in St. Paul, Minnesota.

We were having a box lunch -- on some unknown individual's lawn.
