A very special reunion recently took place at College View Manor. Doris Yeakey and Dorothy Borders (both 91 years old) were reunited after 70 years. Doris and Dorothy both served as Waves in the U.S. Navy during World War II.
Doris and Dorothy originally met when stationed in Milledgeville, Georgia in 1944, following boot camp. Both were eventually transferred to Dallas, Texas, where they were assigned storekeeping duties. Doris worked as a bookkeeper 3rd class and Dorothy worked in supply corp dispersing 2nd class.
While in the Waves, Doris married a soldier who was stationed in Germany. When the war ended the two friends parted ways and unfortunately, lost contact with one another. Doris returned to Joplin and started a family. Dorothy remained in the Waves for 2-3 months after the war ended and then returned to Kentucky where she married a Baptist minister and started a family. They were married for 55 years.
