A loving wife to husband, Herbert, for 55 years, a loving mother of three, a grandmother of 10 and great-grandmother of 5.

A life long native of East Point (3 generations), Dorothy attended Russell High School.

Dorothy was a devoted educator for more than 30 years in Atlanta and Fulton County Schools, serving for many years at Lakeshore High School in the Home Economics department where she functioned as department Chairperson. When Lakeshore closed its doors, she taught at Banneker High School for a number of years, retiring in 1990.

Dorothy was baptized as a teenager at the East Point church of Christ, where her mother, Jeanette Fowler, was one of the original members. With her husband, Herbert, she devoted herself to serving the church in many different ways through the years, from teaching Sunday school, to visiting the sick, to preparing countless meals. Funeral Services will be at 11:00 AM Thursday January 9th at the East Point Church of Christ. Eric Whelchel, minister, will officiate. The remains will be placed in state one hour prior to the service. An interment service will be held immediately following the service at Westview Cemetery.
