Dorothy Mae Aurich was born Dorothy Mae Beyeler on February 20, 1924, at her parents’ home in Dixon County, Nebraska. Her father, Fritz Ernest Beyeler, and her mother, Alice Genevieve (Harrison) Beyeler had her baptized on September 24, 1924, at the Methodist Episcopal Church in Maskell, Nebraska. Dorothy joined the Methodist Episcopal Church in Carroll, Nebraska, on August 25, 1940, after her parents moved near Carroll to farm. She graduated from Carroll High School in 1941. In 1945, she married Louis Jorgensen, and they had five children. They were divorced in 1962.
On September 16, 1967, Dorothy married her soul mate, Arland E. Aurich, at the First Methodist Church in Wayne, Nebraska. They were married for 46 years. For many years, they made their home on a farm southeast of Winside, raising corn, beans, and fat cattle. Dorothy loved being a homemaker, but she also enjoyed her time working as a bookkeeper and accountant at the Wayne Herald for over 25 years, retiring at the same time as her husband, in 1990. Shortly after, they moved to Wayne where Mrs. Aurich continued to work part-time as a personal secretary to Alan Cramer for another ten years.
The Aurichs transferred membership to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Wayne in 1972, which eventually combined with Redeemer Lutheran to become Our Savior Lutheran Church. Over the years, Mrs. Aurich was a PTA member and Board President of the Wayne Public School, from which all five of her children graduated. She was also active as President of St. Paul’s LCW, a member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church Altar Guild, WELCA, Joy Circle, and Visitation Group, and a participant in various Bridge and Pitch clubs. She loved to make beautiful quilts that she gifted to her children and grandchildren. Over the years, she remained in contact with her best friends from high school and her card-playing friends. She loved going to coffee with the girls until her eyesight prevented her from these excursions. She loved being involved with her church, but she loved her family the most. One of her greatest sources of pride was having attending the high school graduations and weddings of each one of her thirteen grandchildren. Although her children live outside of Wayne, and four live outside of Nebraska, they visited her and Arland often. Special memories include making Christmas cookies, trips to Colorado, and traveling the country in 1971 to see four of her five children who were in the military while Dad watched over the farm!
Dorothy Aurich is survived by her loving husband, Arland; her son Bruce Jorgensen and his wife Connie Jorgensen of Gold Canyon, Arizona; her son Leon Jorgensen and his wife Carolyn Jorgensen of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas; her daughter Sandra Klein of Arvada, Colorado; her daughter Patricia Crosier and her husband Rick Crosier of Beatrice, Nebraska; her daughter Deanna Field and her husband Emery Field of Bozeman, Montana; her brother Ken Beyeler and his wife Dorothy Beyeler of Cody, Wyoming; her brother Robert (Bob) Beyeler and his wife Beverly Beyeler of Yuma, Arizona; her brother-in-law Obert Aurich of Beemer, Nebraska; and her sister-in-law Lorna Wegner of Omaha, Nebraska. She is also survived by thirteen grandchildren (Shelly, Randy, RuAnn, Inger, Alicia, Carmen, Teresa, Shannon, Nicole, Josh, Jason, Clint, and Chad, and their spouses, as well as 25 great grandchildren (Sandi, 8; Leon, 6; Pat, 7; Dee, 4), one great great-grandson (Aaron Thomas Field), and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents and three sisters, Ruth Smith, Fern Kelley and Viola Curry, four brothers-in-law, two sisters-in law (Joyce Beyeler and Delilah Aurich) and one son-in-law, Donald M. Klein.
