Dorothea ‘Dora’ Rampton

Formerly of La Grande

1908-2011

Dorothea “Dora” Katherine Henningsen Rampton, 103, formerly of La Grande, died peacefully Oct. 26 at home in Corvallis. A memorial service will begin at 11 a.m. Nov 19 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1205 N.W. Walnut Blvd. in Corvallis. A viewing was held Oct. 29 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at McHenry Funeral Home in Corvallis.

Dora was born Aug. 12, 1908, the fifth of six children born to Henning Friedrich Henningsen and Margarethe Christine Lassen in Payette, Idaho.

Dorothea received a bachelor of science degree from both Oregon Agricultural College and Oregon State College in 1931, the year OAC became OSC.

In December 1933, she and Henry Rampton married in Corvallis. In January 1934, they moved to La Grande where Henry worked as a Union County agent under H.G. Avery. Henry’s chief responsibilities were in forage and seed crops and 4-H agricultural clubs. Henry and Dorothea returned to Corvallis in July of 1934 when Henry took a position in forage and seed crop research at the Agricultural Experiment Station.

Dorothea was preceded in death by her husband, Henry Hardy Rampton, who died in May of 2004 at the age of 99 and a half; and a daughter, Alice Margaret Rampton, who died in 1956.

She is survived by five children, Jean R. Nelson (Charles) of Corvallis, Dr. James Henry Rampton (Jackie Jo) of Platte City, Mo., Dr. Wesley Frederick Rampton (Marie) of La Grande, Christine R. Low (John, deceased) and Dr. Mark Edmond Rampton (Alice) of Corvallis; 33 grandchildren; 71 great-grandchildren; and seven great-great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the OSU Foundation to benefit the Henry H. & Dorothea Rampton Memorial Scholarship Fund for Crop and Soil Science students at OSU.
