When Doris A. "Dodie" Reinholdt and her husband, Harland, built their home on Nevada Drive in Longview, the road was nothing more than gravel and the neighborhood was sparsley populated.
Nearly 70 years later, Dodie continues to live on the property they homesteaded. She recently marked another life milestone: celebrating her 100th birthday.
All but one of her 33 grandchildren were present at the party held in her honor Jan. 11. Dodie's daughter-in-law, Cle Reinholdt, said about 150 people attended the event, including her two younger sisters, 97-year-old Frances and 90-year-old Margie. Dodie's older sister, 103-year-old Beatrice, was unable to make the trip as was her brother, 94-year-old Charles.
Dodie suggested the secret to her long life is the hard work she's put in over the years.
She was born Jan. 11, 1915, in Sanish, ND, to Randine and Jasper Shode. Dodie's family -- her parents, five girls and a boy -- ran a 16-acre cattle ranch.
"Five girls and one boy on that big ranch in North Dakota ... that's what my dad got was us girls," Dodie said. "It wasn't an easy life. We girls worked on the ranch, of course. I was the one who helped my dad with the cattle."
She held the branding iron while her dad stamped each animal or she held the knives when he castrated the calves.
Her younger sister, Frances, and she were "pals," Dodie said.
"Frances and I were always the ones who were kind of in trouble," she said, smiling.
For Dodie's birthday, Frances compiled a memory book of their adventures on the ranch.
The girls enjoyed spending time in their father's tool shop, where they learned to use the saws, vice, anvil and hammers. All their skills were self-taught, Frances noted in the memory book.
They "even tried pumping the bellows on the ancient forge," wrote Frances. "Then one day when we came up to further our skills, we found a padlock on the door."
Now why, the girls wondered, would their father lock the door?
"Could it be that he had sawed up a new 2-by-4 board for furniture in our playhouse?" Frances wrote.
Dodie attended school in Sanish. She also went to high school part of the time in Van Hook, ND, about 10 miles away. That is where she met Harland W. "Harley" Reinholdt. He, too, grew up on a farm.
After he got out of high school, Harley attended the state teachers' college in Minot, ND, and taught rural school. After their marriage in 1936, Harley went to work at the Fort Peck Dam in Montana. When that job was finished in 1941, the young couple moved to Vancouver, where Harley worked at the Kaiser shipyards.
"He worked in the engine room," Dodie said. "He outfitted the ships before they went out to sea."
At the close of World War II, they moved to Longview, where Harley went to work for his brother, Kenneth Reinholdt, at his car alignment shop.
In the late 1940s, Harley and Dodie opened the Korner Kupboard grocery store at the corner of Columbia Heights Road and Nevada Drive. Running the business was enjoyable, Dodie said.
"We just knew everybody and loved everybody," she said. They "had the first store for about six years."
When they were unable to secure a new lease at the building, the couple began running the Budget Basket grocery at Columbia Heights and Laurel Road, not far from the location of their previous store.
While operating the businesses, the couple branched out to selling fireworks. Their son, Jim, began selling live Christmas trees. Dodie and Harley helped with that endeavor, too.
"The family pitched in," said Cle. "They used to paint and flock in the old Smith Building (on Washington Way in Longview)."
The couple also ran a collection agency, Association of Credit Management.
Despite the many hats she wore in the working world, Dodie said she still found time to be a homemaker. She baked bread and her family's favorite cookies, "Oatmeal Rocks."
"I brought the recipe with me from North Dakota. When the kids first started school, they brought them to school with them and, of course, everybody asked for the recipe. So now it's all around Longview," she said.
She and Harley's children and in-laws are James H. Reinholdt and David M. and Cle Reinholdt, all of Longview; Thomas L. and Natalie Reinholdt of Sitka, Alaska; and Gerald K. and Terry Reinholdt of St. Helens, Ore. Dodie has 11 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
When Harley decided to do something, Dodie said, she "always went along with him, and I had to always help."
That included being a member of the Elks and other community organizations. Dodie is a past president for the Ladies of Elks No. 1514. She also was an active volunteer with the American Business Women's Association, the American Heart Association, the Community Club and Cub Scouts Den No. 515.
When Harley retired, she said, they never really stopped being busy.
"I don't know if we ever really retired," she said, smiling.
She said she is glad she spent so much time with her husband and family. Harley died in 2003 after 68 years of marriage.
"And those were 68 good years," she said. "We were very happy. That's a rarity nowadays."
