August 8, 1950 ~ January 21, 2021 (age 70)


Bertie Woodin passed away peacefully on January 21, 2021, at her home in Deary, Idaho.

Bertie was born August 8, 1950 in Orofino, ID to Robert and Blanche Carlson. The couple later divorced. Blanche married Ted Dorendorf when Bertie was 6 years old and they moved to Clarkia, ID. She graduated from St. Maries High School.

Bertie married her childhood sweetheart Lynn Woodin February 22, 1969 in Coeur d’ Alene, ID.

Bertie and Lynn enjoyed restoring automobiles and she reupholstered several of them. She liked going to the woods with Lynn to move the log loader and was known to even hop inside and drive it by herself.

Bertie loved their vacations spent in Laughlin, NV. She also enjoyed many outdoor activities including picking huckleberries, riding bikes, riding her ATV and in the wintertime, she could be found snowmobiling in the surrounding mountains.

Her grandkids were the light of her life! There was no greater joy for her than when her grandkids came to visit, and she enjoyed every moment spent with them.

Bertie is survived by her loving husband Lynn of 51 years; their two children, Tommy and wife Heather Woodin of Spokane, WA and Tami Woodin- McDonald of Richland, WA as well as her seven beloved grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. Bertie is also survived by her siblings, Christy Asbury of Vancouver, WA, Eric Dorendorf of Benton City, WA, Steve and wife Sandy Dorendorf of Fiddletown, CA, Vernon “Pete” Dorendorf of Moscow, Julie and husband Roger Osborn of Post Falls, and Ted Dorendorf of Moscow.

She was preceded in death by her parents and grandson, Cameron.

The family is planning a small family celebration of her life in the spring or summer.

The family suggests memorials be made to the Deary Ambulance Fund.
