January 10, 1943 — November 3, 2020

Delores Kay (Hiatt) Flexer, 77, of Liberty, MO, passed away peacefully on November 3, 2020 surrounded by family.

Dorie was born January 10, 1943, in North Kansas City, MO.  She was the eldest of three children of Walter S. and Evelyn Janice (Ensign) Hiatt. She grew up in Cameron, MO where she graduated  high school in 1961.  She was united in marriage to Daniel Robert Flexer on October 31, 1963 in Louisiana. Dorie worked in accounts payable for the Victor L. Phillips Company for 32 years prior to retiring to follow her grandchildren to every activity under the sun. She was the Liberty Blue Jay’s #1 fan….regardless of the sport and would trade out her beloved Blue Jay blue and white for Bulldog purple and gold while watching any sporting activity or musical production in Kearney that included her grandchildren.   Dorie was well known for her cheesecake, meatloaf, pan fried chicken, banana cream pie and many other family favorites.

Along with her parents, Dorie was preceded in death by her sister, Jacqueline Voris.  Survivors include her husband of 57 years, Danny; children, Kim Thorne (Steve) of Kearney, MO, and Walter Flexer (Holly) of Denver, CO; grandchildren, Nathan Thorne, Tyler Thorne (Sarah), Baylee Thorne and Jack Thorne; brother, Tom Hiatt (Connie) of Kingsport, TN; brother-in-law, Paul Voris of Lee's Summit, MO; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, an uncle, cousins, and many extended family members and friends.

Beyond her complete devotion to her family, Dorie worked as an advocate for children, facilitating Tough Love, a support group for parents of troubled youth, and as a certified CASA caseworker in the Clay County court system serving underprivileged youth.

Flexer, Delores “Dorie”'s Guestbook

Although we never had the honor to meet Dorie, I feel like I knew her from all the wonderful stories I've heard. She certainly left a legacy of amazing family members. A true testament to the type of mother and grandmother she was. You are all in our prayers.

The Jasinski Family

We never had the privilege of knowing Dorie as others have, but we know how much we love Steve, Kim and their family. Their example and goodness is a testament to those who raised them and are a part of their extended family. Our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Dorie Flexer. Our belief and faith teaches us that families truly are forever, and that death is but a moment in time as we all prepare for the miracle of the resurrection, where we will all be reunited with those we love and cherish. This is all made possible because our loving Heavenly Father sent his Son, Jesus Christ to the earth to atone, die, and rise again from the dead, that we all might be recipients of that same merciful gift. Hoping this understanding brings great comfort to all during this difficult time. Love, Nate and Stephanie Hughes
