Dorothy Mae Tyner
April 1, 1930 – October 14, 2020
TUSCALOOSA - Dorothy “Dot” Teske Tyner, age 90, was escorted by angels to heaven on October 14, 2020. She didn’t want to leave us, but Jesus called.
A Graveside Service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, October 18, 2020, at Memory Hill Gardens with Bro. Larry Corder officiating and Memory Chapel Funeral Home directing.
Mrs. Tyner was preceded in death by her husband, Marvin Junior Tyner; parents, Elisabeth and Ely Teske; two sisters, Betty Jo Tyner and Louise Colvin; and five brothers, Donald Wayne, Emil, John, Roy, and David.
She is survived by her daughters, Dale Fisher, Janna Hickman (Carey), and Sandi Thigpen; son, Lane Tyner (Lisa); beloved grandchildren, Warren Sparks, Page Hathcock, Phillip Hickman, Christie Buford, Stephanie Stone, Josh Tyner, and Zach Tyner; nineteen great-grandchildren; four sisters, Mary Wilkerson, Linda Blackwood, Becky Blackwood, and Barbara Wyres; and one brother, Charles Teske.
Dot was raised in Walker County, but since 1949, Tuscaloosa was her home. She was a strong Christian, devoted wife, and a caring and protective mother. Other than her family, the other joys of life were reading, her flowers and garden, and wood-working projects. She was a longtime member of Alberta Baptist Church and a longtime employee of La Rocca Nursing Home.
