Grand Marshall Bio
Dorothy Basso

Dorothy Basso is a native of Livermore, born January 6, 1926 as Dorothy Mae Faria.

Growing up she attended 5th Street Grammar School, then went on to graduate from Livermore High School in 1944.  After graduating, she worked for several local businesses including Rexall Drugs and BeBe's

Growing up as a child her family would attend the local rodeos each year and continues this today at 92 years of age.  Her longtime favorite RCA Cowboy was Johnie Schneider, the 1931 All-Around World Champion.  One of Dorothy's Uncles, Dave Hope, was a Livermore Stockman's Rodeo Director and the Chief Writer for the Oakland Tribute who would write stories on Schneider each year during the Livermore Rodeo.  Dorothy recalls Schneider would stay at her Grandmother's home on College Avenue while he was competing in Livermore.  One of Schneider's last visits to Livermore was nearly 50 years ago and he made it a point to stay in contact with Dorothy.

On Valentine's Day, 1948, Dorothy married Ernie Basso.  They continued to live in Livermore raising two children, Steve and Sandra.
Steve and his wife Sandy have two sons, Brian and Kyle
Their Daughter, Sandra, married Charlie Inderbitzen.
All are local ranchers, involved with the family business and remain in Livermore.

For over 40 years she has been involved with the Livermore Rodeo.  She would assist in the "Local Events" entries.  For man years Dorothy was known for assisting in hand-writing all the payout checks to the Stock Contractors and Event Winners.  She worked many years selling rodeo tickets at the "Ticket Booth" at Baughman's Western Coral alongside her longtime friend Scootie Castello.

Dorothy has received many awards for recognition and Ranch community service, such as the 2013 Rowell Ranch Rodeo Cowgirl Spirit Award, the 2014 Livermore Stockmen's Rodeo Volunteer of the Year and in 2015, was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from ACTRA.

Dorothy and her late husband, Ernie, are best known for their very popular Team Roping Arena, "Basso's Arena", at their home ranch on Dagnino Road in North Livermore.  In the early 1980's Dorothy and Ernie were part of the founders of the American Cowboys Team Roping Association.  Dorothy proudly came up with the perfect name for the Association, now boasting over 15,000 members nationally.

Dorothy and Ernie successfully produced Team Ropings all over Northern California and Nevada for well over 30 years.  This is before the use of computers or electric timers, while figuring results and writing everything by hand.  Dorothy would still love to be working the roping if not for her declining eyesight.

Sandra and her late husband Charlie Inderbitzen's Ranch in North Livermore is now home to "Basso's Arena that hosts weekly ropings and are a loyal sponsor of Livermore and Rowell Ranch Rodeos.  Dorothy is a fixture in or around the timer's office overseeing the day, visiting and watching over her family and friends.

Dorothy makes friends everywhere she goes, is very outgoing, honest spoken, and a very independent 92 year old, who is known for her quick wit, jokes, and great sense of humor.  She is always the life of the party.  She is loved and respected by everyone who knows her, evident by her reception at every event!

Her love for Rodeo, the Western Lifestyle, the Roping Family, and Friends has been her spirit for this life.
