HFHNA Mourns the Death of Dorie King

Habitat for Humanity of North Augusta (HFHNA) mourns the death of Dorie King on August 24, 2016. Mrs. King, 72, of Belvedere, was a well-loved member of the community, and, among other passions, put in hundreds of hours with HFHNA.

HFHNA Board member Rick Berry noted:  “we lost a stalwart who’s not been able to help us the last few years.  She was certainly as important to us as any of the pioneers for our affiliate.”

Dorie will be missed by those whose lives she touched at HFHNA.  We send our deepest sympathies to her family.
