orothy was born May 30, 1914, in Kay County, Oklahoma, the daughter of William H. and Myrtle (Mitcham) Henkle. She graduated from Central Academy, McPherson in 1931, Central College, McPherson in 1935, Seattle Pacific, WA with a B.A. degree in 1946, and Wichita State University with a M.A. degree in 1960.

Following the lead of two of her sisters, Dorothy chose to become a teacher and completed 42 years in the teaching profession. Starting with nine years teaching in elementary school settings, she later chose to teach math and English in junior and senior high schools in LaCygne, McPherson, Wichita, and Arkansas City.

Dorothy worked with a wide variety of students of different ages and at various levels. She could recognize their sensitivities and helped all to reach their full potential. Her career culminated by induction into the Kansas State Teachers Hall of Fame.

Her memberships included the Free Methodist Church, where she played the organ and piano, Gideons Auxiliary, McPherson Association of Retired School Personnel (past President), the Kansas Association of Retired School Personnel (past President), and Delta Kappa Gamma (past Treasurer).

On May 3, 1986, Dorothy married Roger W. Pounds. During their union, they traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and the Orient. Roger preceded her in death on February 10, 2009.

Dorothy was saved at an early age and remained a faithful servant of her Lord and her church throughout her life. She was a loving aunt to her nieces and nephews and their families; and a devoted step-mother to Roger’s daughters and their families.

Dorothy passed away on Thursday, March 15, 2012, at Hutchinson Regional Medical Center. She was ninety-seven.

who teach by their deeds

and by what they say.

Who help students learn truth,

to choose right from wrong,

to embrace wisdom,

and to grow in understanding,

By being for them a living lesson

from God’s textbook of life.

Study to show thyself

approved unto God.”

II Timothy 2:15

In Loving Memory
