Dorothy loved listening to gospel hymns, watching her favorite preachers on television, and reading her bible. She loved her children but she loved her grandchildren more. She enjoyed camping, sewing, cooking, gardening, and fishing. She along with Johnny especially loved taking the grandchildren camping, boating, to amusement parks, loading them up in a van to go look at Christmas lights and teasing them about her yellow bell bush.

Being the oldest of 15 kids, she loved her brothers and sisters beyond measure. Her face would light up at the very sight of them. Always reminding them she was the boss. 

She will be missed immensely by her family but we are so happy to know that she is with Jesus, her parents, brothers, and her very beloved Emmaly.
