She was affectionately known by many monikers: Dot, Cadillac, Auntie, Dottie Wottie and Smart Lady, just to name a few.

Dorothy leaves to cherish her loving memory two sisters Virginia Smith and Shirley Jones; a host of nieces, nephews, and extended family; special friends Pat Credit, Bea Stubbs, Kay Simpson and her God family Marilyn and F .H. Lyons, Dawn Murchison, Tommy Murchison and the late Lee Murchison.
