I have fond childhood memories of aunt Dorothy when my family visited Louisiana. She put up with so much from us kids. She was so lovely. I was talking to one of my english aunts yesterday and she'd only met aunt Dorothy the one time when visiting the USA. She said she has always remembered what a kind, generous, welcoming, wonderful lady she was. Sums her up perfectly. RIP aunt Dorothy xx

She was my Aunt's sister in law not related to me but I called her Aunt Dorothy. I remember going to her house as a child and was treated like one of her nieces. She always loved me and I loved her back. She had 5 boys and the most clean house I have ever seen.
I mourn the loss of her because there will never be one like her but praise God she is not suffering any longer.

I will miss Aunt Dorothy so much. As far back as I can remember, we came to visit for Thanksgiving. As a teen and a bit older, I remember doing dishes afterwards, and Sharan sending back dishes for me to rewash to mess with me. As an adult, I remember fighting with Jennifer for the roast gravy. I will miss playing spades at night with the second best card shark (my Dad had her beat, but not by much.) Love you Aunt Dorothy!

I remember family time, as a little girl at Aunt Dorothy’s house. She always made me feel welcome, with her hospitality and a good cup of coffee. Her house felt like a home. When I remember her, I see her big, beautiful smile. She was genuine and loving. A truly humble spirit. May she Rest In Peace for eternity.

Aunt Dorothy’s redfish when I took her and uncle Colton fishing. My best memory of her. She fought the fish on her own... like every other obstacle she had!!!

Aunt Dorothy the best Aunt anyone could ask for. I am so thankful for the many times that I got to spend with you . Like the times when we went to get your favorite, mozzarella sticks and milkshakes. All those memories will be cherished dearly. Just remember you are in our hearts and our prayers. You will be missed Love you Kathy LeJeune

So sorry for the loss of a special person. Our prayers go out to the family. She was my aunt by marriage 💑 but her heart was so beautiful that I never felt that I wasn't always her family. I loved her so very much 😢...

For many years our vacations consisted of Dot, Tee, Shirley,Zack, Jenn, Bree an I. We had such fun crabbing, fishing, eating, playing cards. Sometimes we talked Rose into going and it was a real brother/sister vacation. I will miss her so much.
