Doradean Ogden Hendrickson, 94, passed away June 30, 2019, in Richfield. She was born the youngest of nine children Jan. 26, 1925, in Richfield, to Charles Lorenzo and Dora Ann Coons Ogden. Doradean married her sweetheart and eternal companion, Kenneth P. Hendrickson, Feb. 5, 1943, in the Manti temple. He preceded her in death Sept. 18, 2010.
Doradean grew up in Richfield and lived there her entire life. She worked on the farm with her family when she was young and when her father started the Ideal Dairy everything was done by hand. It was her job to wash the bottles in the kitchen sink and then after they were filled she would help to put the cardboard caps in the top of them.
Doradean met Kenneth when they were in the seventh grade. They dated through high school and were married during their senior year because they knew that Kenneth would be leaving in the military as soon as they graduated.
Doradean was very active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was always serving. She held many positions in primary, relief society and as young women’s president (MIA). She was responsible for helping to start the Cub Scout program in the Richfield area and then train others who wanted their boys to be involved. She was a founding member and president of the Jr. Culture Club, book clubs, and has belonged to the Daughters of Utah Pioneers for many years.
Doradean’s testimony of the gospel was evident by the way she lived her life – she was a faithful example to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her family meant everything to her.
Doradean is survived by her children, Dr. Raymond K. (Diane) Hendrickson, Glenwood; Hal (Kathleen) Hendrickson, Morgan Hill, California; Cori (Don) Overson, Provo; Leon C. Hendrickson, West Jordan; Dr. Ivan K. (Martha) Hendrickson, St. George; Holly (Todd) McAllister, Richfield; 28 grandchildren and 85 great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Reed, Lavar, Grant, Woodrow, Garth and Homer Ogden; sisters, Shirley Nielsen and Helen Evans; and great-grandson, Joshua Gardener.
