Dorothy Dell Loe Oliver

August 8, 1930 — April 25, 2024

Dorothy Dell Loe Oliver (August 8, 1930 - April 25, 2024)


Dorothy recently retired as a piano teacher in Woodway, Texas.  Music was her life, and her passion for teaching music was her calling.  It brought her great joy, meaning, and comfort.  Dorothy started playing piano as a child, and during her high school years, she played for her church every Sunday morning. She played the clarinet in the Monahans High School Marching Band and was a member of the North Texas State University Marching Band. 


Dorothy had been a piano teacher for decades, and upon moving to Woodway in 2004, decided to start all over again. And at 82, why not? She introduced herself to the music teachers’ community and attracted many new students. She was able to develop the talents of many wonderful pupils, and each year they performed at special recitals she held for them.


Dorothy was predeceased by George Edmond Oliver, to whom she was married for 53 years, and her son Mark Oliver, brothers Don (Carol) Loe, and Lanny (Landa) Loe.   She is survived by her children, twins Christopher Oliver of Whitney, Texas, and Cynthia Oliver (Carol Thumlert) of Dallas, Texas. 


Dorothy loved her life with George and adored being a mom. She also loved the mountains of Colorado, traveling, reading, dancing, and playing FreeCell.


Those who knew Dorothy often remarked on her amazing sense of humor, even during life and health challenges. When she was asked, “How are you?” she always replied, “Better and better,” and she ended most phone calls with her trademark, “bye the bye.”
