Dorothy was a member of First United Methodist Church in Monroe for more than 60 years and outside of her family, it was the most important thing in her life. For years she sang in the choir and was member of the United Methodist Women and Anna Gray Noe Sunda school class. She and her group of special “lady friends” spent man happy times together traveling, playing cards and Mexican Dominoes. In her last four years, spent at Azalea Estates and Avalon Place, she warmed the hearts of all who saw her because of her constant chuckle and ever-present smile. Even though Dorothy dearly loved her church, friends and work, her family was most important to her, and her unconditional love fo us was felt by each of us to the very end. She was always ready and excited about every family event, whether it was a birthday party, holiday celebration or vacation. No matter how great our need, she was always there to lend a hand or show her support. i e loss of our “Gehee” will leave a huge hole in our hearts.
