      From a tribute book made about David P. Black and his family by his children in 1978:
           "Dortha was born in Blanding, Utah, and lived there with the rest of the family until we all moved to Salt Lake City in 1938.  She graduated from West High School in Salt Lake City.  She knew how to type, play the saxophone, and could play the piano by ear.  She was completely unselfish and even-tempered.  Our parents taught us to be industrious, and she was a hard worker.
           She never went to beauty school or anything like that, but she seemed to have a knack for fixing hair.  Clella would put her hair up just any old way (or maybe not at all) and then something would come up that would make her want her hair to look nice, and she would go to Dortha and ask her to fix it.  Dortha would take the comb, asking Clella how she expected her to perform miracles, but when she got through, Clell's hair always looked nice.
           Because Bon and Dortha were close together in age (and also close friends so that they were usually together), it seemed that everyone always referred to them together instead of individually.  Everyone in the family and everyone in town used to always say "Bon and Dorth."  One time when Nora's children came to Blanding they used to call them both "Bon and Dorth" because it was said like that so often that they never did distinguish but what it was just one name.
           Uncle Arza Kartchner came down to Blanding one time and brought a bunch of photographs of his family and different things.  All the family was gathered around him looking at the pictures.  Something happened that made Bon turn and hit Dortha.  Dortha never even looked around or blinked an eye.  Everyone was surprised that she would let Bon get away with that.  However, the minute Dortha was finished looking at the pictures, she THEN turned around and really swatted Bon a good one!  So I guess Bon didn't get away with hitting Dortha after all!
           In 1941 she married Ralph Palacios.  She lived in Salt Lake City while he was in the Army and their first son was born there.  After his discharge they moved to California where their other three children were born.
           She died May 8, 1973, in California.  At the present time she has four grandchildren." [1]
