I had the pleasure of working with Dorothy many years ago at Ayers Department store. She was the sweetest girl and very nice to work with. I would think of her often and would call to see how she was feeling. She was always up and ready to take on the day. I will miss her even though we didn't visit as she was always so busy as i was also with my family. But GOD took home one sweet, precious lady. I loved her. GOD BLESS HER FAMILY. My prayers are with you!

Dorthy you were my girls “Nanny” for many years while they were babies. You started with Brianna at 5 and Britnee at 6 weeks. You were a God send to me and my girls. We love you. You will be so missed. Prayers for you and all the family.

Terry brought me up to meet them with Vivian and Dorothy welcomed me into the family. She made me feel very at home and invited us back any time. I cherish that time we went to the cemetery and she was telling me about all that had went home to be with the Lord.
