OBITUARIO

Dorothy "Dot" Black

13 junio , 19285 octubre , 2021

Dorothy “Dot” Black, age 93 of Cartersville, GA passed away on Tuesday, October 5, 2021. She was born in Cartersville, GA on June 13, 1928 to the late Orbin A. Satterfield and Elma Martin Satterfield. Dot is preceded in death by her husband, Wayne Black; brother, Billy Satterfield; sister, Fay Gentry and sister-in-law, Colleen Satterfield. She is survived by her son, Darrell Black; daughter, Carol (Larry) Blackburn; grandchildren, Matt (Britney) Blackburn, Haley (Jay) Zimmerman; great-grandchildren, Sammy Zimmerman, Rachel Zimmerman, Olivia Zimmerman, Henry Blackburn, Charles Blackburn; sisters, Ann (Wallace) Cochran, Betty (Warren) Milam; brothers, Larry Satterfield, Buddy (Jeannette) Satterfield; a host of nieces and nephews. “Aunt Dot” or “Miss Dot” as she was known to hundreds of friends lived a long and full life. She spent a great portion of it helping others, as commanded by the Scriptures. A Christian of the Baptist faith for over eight decades, she exemplified the doctrine of “love thy neighbor” in helping others She was born on a farm in Bartow County at the start of the Great Depression. The oldest child of seven in a farming family, she grew up knowing the meaning of hard work and sacrifice. After graduating from Cass High, she eloped with a WWII sailor, her next-door neighbor and boyfriend, Wayne Black. Two children came along in five years and by five more years, she began a long record of community service. At the local hospital, she accumulated over 2,500 hours as a Pink Lady. Along the way, she was a Den Mother of Cub Scouts, officer in Home Demonstration Club, Sunday School teacher and choir member In 1968, Dot was hired by the Bartow Neighborhood Service Center of Tallatoona to help the low income and elderly. This evolved into helping Toys for Tots, Job Corps, and starting the process of getting a Salvation Army and a battered women’s shelter in Cartersville. Finally, the day came that the shelter became a fixture and she was named to the board of directors. She took some time off in 1980 when her husband died, but returned to helping others by joining the Pilot Club and becoming their director. Dot also worked with First Lady Elizabeth Harris and the local Garden Club. She was active in the Cartersville B&P W and Woodmen of the World. A Salvation Army store also became a reality and Dot became their first hire. This proved to be her most enjoyable job as she helped many people in many ways. After retiring, she had a short time helping with some nursing homes. Finally, while doing all this in the 1980-2000 years, Dot also managed to keep a total of 18 foster children. Some stayed for a few days, others for over a year. Vision problems plagued Dot in recent years, but that didn’t slow her enthusiasm for her Pine Grove Baptist Church choir, Sunday School, and Pioneers.

A Celebration of Life Service will be conducted at 2:00 pm on Sunday, October 10, 2021 at Pine Grove Baptist Church., 93 Pine Grove Rd, Cartersville with Rev. Clinton Green and Rev. Buddy Satterfield officiating.

Miss Dot and I share the same birthday, and I couldn't think of anyone more special to share that day with. We both attend Pine Grove Baptist Church together. I brought her a rose corsage for her birthday and gave it to her in Sunday School.
Oh my goodness, she just grabbed me around my neck and she cried and cried, then I cried and cried and we just stood there holding onto each other knowing just how precious and special it was to share our Special Day together!!
I miss you Miss Dot and will treasure your memory always.
Until we meet again....

I have such fond memories of Mrs. Dot. I used to spend the night with Pam Gentry, her niece. We used to visit all the family. I really loved her.
Carol & Darrell, you have such a wonderful family. You have been so blessed to have your mother for so long. I miss my mother so often. I just want to pick up the phone and ask her advice on something.
Much love to you both & know how wonderful we have the promise of seeing her again. Love you.

When we moved here from Texas Aunt Elmer was the Matriarch of the Satterfield family and when she passed that title was handed to her oldest Aunt Dot.
What a Lady, always a smile and a greeting with a hug. Darrell, Carol and family you will be in our prayers.
