Doris Ann was born on February 27, 1937 in Fairville Township in Wells County, N.D. to Tannes and Hanna (Gudmestad) Gedrose. Doris attended the Fairville #4 rural school house. She lived on the family farm northeast of Cathay, N.D. Doris attended school until the eighth grade. She worked on the family farm. She later started working at the Carrington Hospital as a CNA and loved this job, because she loved taking care of people.
She met Wayne "Tuff" Partlow and they married on January 9, 1959 in Carrington. They had two children, Tim and Sheryl. Doris later worked at Seaburg Drug and Central Pharmacy for years and loved that job. She loved helping people pick out that perfect gift and also enjoyed going on the buying trips for the store. She enjoyed playing cards, having coffee with friends and playing board games with her grandchildren. But what she enjoyed the most was her family. Getting together with brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and all extended family was the BEST for Doris. She really enjoyed a good prank every chance she got. Tuff passed away in 1982.
On September 27, 1986 Doris married Jerry Wolsky. They made their home at Arrowwood National Wildlife Refuge. After Jerry retired, they moved to Carrington, N.D. Jerry passed away in 2021.
