Dorothy "Dot" Ingram Mc Cargo, 95, passed away on Nov. 22, 2014 in Florence, Alabama. She was the daughter of Francis and Martha Pace Ingram. She was preceded in death by her husband, DeWitt McCargo Jr., in 1988 and by her sister Martha Terrell. She is survived by her children, DeWitt McCargo III, of Atlanta, Ga.; Marline Sellers and her husband, Jack, of Florence, Ala.; Bill McCargo and his wife, Kathy, of Atlanta, Ga.; Virgil McCargo, of Atlanta, Ga.; Avrea McCargo and his partner Mark Stoops, of St. Petersburg, Fla.

A Longtime resident of Anniston, Ala., Dorothy also lived in Cocoa Beach and St. Petersburg, Florida; Buford, Georgia and Florence, Alabama. She was always on the go. Earlier in life, she was the secretary of Adams-McCargo Motor Company and later a prominent businesswoman who followed her passion by opening her own clothing store named Marline's House of Fashion in Anniston. She was never satisfied with just staying at home because of her many talents, interests and efforts for her church and community. Travel was one of these interests, especially with family and friends. She enjoyed, sewing, painting, and knitting; in fact, everyone in her family and beyond has drawers full of handmade scarves, quilts, caps and sweaters. Dot loved to shop and she could never resist turning into a yard sale. Our Dot will lovingly be remembered with a smile for her infectious a-little-too-loud laughter, her reading of maps and road signs along the highway and her tendency at times to burn dinner, which was probably one of her only flaws. She will long be remembered for her unconditional love for and unqualified devotion to her husband, children and extended family. In lieu of flowers contributions can be sent to the Alabama Brain injury Foundation, Suite 203, 3100 Lorna Road, Hoover Alabama 35216. Online condolences made at
