In memory of
Dorothy Best "Dee" Strand
Dorothy Best 'Dee' Strand Aug. 15, 1957 - Jan. 19, 2019 Dorothy Best "Dee" Strand passed away Jan. 19, 2019. Dee was born in Seattle, Wash., and raised in Portland, Ore. After attending Lincoln High School in Portland she received a B.A. in Political Economy from Colorado College (1979) and a B.S. in Psychology from Portland State University (1981). Dee married Mike Slade in 1983 and together they settled in Seattle where they were together for almost 20 years. Dee was a devoted and fiercely loyal mother to her beloved daughters Adrian and Sally. She was happiest in the outdoors, whether it was skiing, backpacking, hiking, exercising, gardening or walking her dog. She also loved literature, cooking, arguments and old movies. Dee's deepest lifelong passion was horses. She was an avid and accomplished equestrian, especially in the world of three-day eventing. She competed at a high level for many years and then from 2003 to 2017 owned and operated Upson Downs, a world-class eventing barn in Duvall, Wash. At her remembrance, praise was forthcoming not only for the barn but also for the spirit with which she operated, eschewing profits for the best and most nurturing environment. Her unique spirit and attitude will be missed by all. She was preceded in death by her mother, Pamela Best; and her father, Carl Strand. She leaves behind her amazing daughters; her brother, Nick Strand (Portland); close friends; and an enduring legacy. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Washington Horse Park (www.wahorsepark,org) or the U.S. Equestrian Association Area VII. Please sign the online guest book at www.oregonlive.com/obits
