She was born on October 23, 1924 in Montevideo, MN and grew up in Granite Falls, MN with her parents, Oscar and Martha (Leipold) Anderson and sister Karen. Dort married Robert Seipp (from Hanley Falls, MN) in 1945 on his return from the Marine Corps.

In retirement, they moved to Phoenix, AZ to be near Barb and her husband Mike Seibert. Later there was a move to Crosslake, MN. Dort especially enjoyed and excelled at bridge, golf shopping, piano bars and most of all, entertaining. Everyone was always welcome in their home and treated to her special style.
