We so enjoyed our travels with Dot and Floyd on the several times they joined us on our trips. Dot was always cheerful and full of fun.
She and Floyd were a delight to be with, and we know she'll be sorely missed by her family and closest friends.
We're so sorry for her loss.
Lee and Elaine Gordon

Dorothy was a woman of great joy. She had it, she created it and she shared it! I was blessed to know her through Court St UMC, and we have family ties as well. She helped welcome me back when I moved home to Fulton in 2012 and saw that I get reengaged in church activities. Her faith, energy and love for children helped greatly as we did the annual Bazaar each year. I have no doubt that her golden halo is waiting for her now. Peace, dear Dorothy.

Dot was my buddy after her husband Bill passed away. We began our travels all over Europe and Australia plus cruises. We traveled to several states just for the fun of going places. Her sister, Martha, usually was along for the ride knowing Dot and I would find the fun things to do. I have missed you so much my friend but know that you rest in peace with your beloved Bill. So long Pal until we meet again.
