6:45 (morning light) Las Vegas time. To all
who loved her, my heart is with you this morning. This extraordinary lady was many things to MANY people. She wore many HATS.
She was my mother’s youngest sister and after
my Mother Opal’s early death, she became my
second Mother. She was Mother, Grand & Great-Grand, but to me she was ‘my Aunt Dot’
She was my ‘Auntie Mame’ my ‘Cotton Carnival
Queen’ & during the last 10 years, my telephone
friend who counseled me with never-ending patience. I’m thinking of her now, driving her car, carefree & using her instinct only (as
far as directions go). I’m feeling that she’s
doing the same now, but on her angel’s wings, going to a glorious place and laughing all the way. Bon Voyage, Aunt Dot

Phyllis, Brenda, Alva & families
You are in my thoughts and prayers. This song comes to mind and may it provide you peace and comfort during this time as Aunt Dot did not waiver on her deep Christian faith. Love, Susan
HE has formed me from the dust and to dust I shall return,
HE has made me in his light and to light I shall become,
But I’ll be free, free, free at last, to lay it all down,
Free, free, free, at last, to wear my crown that HE bore for me,
And my heart shall never, never break again.

I met Dorothy years ago while I attended Ohio Valley College with Phyllis. A very wonderful woman who made my visit a time to be always remembered, along with her sister Alva and their father. Now she is joining him in Heaven and she will be at peace. My heartfelt feelings to Todd and his family and to all who love her. I know she will be sadly missed, and we will wait one day to all be reunited…Love and Peace…Dennis Mazza, Clarksburg, West Virginia.

Aunt Dot lived her life quietly without fanfare or complaint even when faced with serious surgeries or the deaths of loved ones. She was always concerned about the welfare of you girls so she peacefully slipped away and avoided heartbreaking end of life decisions on her behalf. She was a truly beautiful, lovely, and caring person. Goodbye Aunt Dot. God Bless!


Carol Robertson - Oct 7, 2010
