They grew up in Nashville, Tennessee where Dottie was the daughter of the late Dr. and Mrs. Walter P. Fields and sister of the late Emily Fields Borchers and the late Ronald E. Fields. She is survived by her brother, Dr. William H. Fields of Clarksville, TN and a sister in law, Catherine Keeble Killebrew of Nashville, TN.

She has three great grandchildren: Madalin Grace Sudlow, Mark Byrnes Sudlow Jr. and Rylie Elizabeth Keeble. Dottie's devotion over the years has been to her family - her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and friends. Dottie's deep personal faith in Jesus Christ was her gift to all who knew her. God's message of hope and love motivated her whole being both inside and out. She taught Sunday school and worked with the Youth at North Avenue Presbyterian Church for many years where her husband was an elder and adult Sunday school teacher. Their outreach to the church and the community included The Atlanta Young Life Organization and Campus Crusade for Christ. They were part of the Washington Fellowship and had a ministry with the International Class at North Avenue Presbyterian Church. Dottie's home was always open to Bible classes, prayer groups, speakers from around the country and world who blessed many in her community. In her earlier years, she served her community through the Atlanta Junior League where she became involved with the International students who came to Atlanta to study. Dottie is survived by and was devoted to her many nieces and nephews from Georgia, Texas, Tennessee and North Carolina. For many years Dottie dealt with cancer. She always said that she had cancer but that cancer did not have her! She is grateful for the sustained love and prayers from her friends in Atlanta and around the country, especially the prayer group at North Avenue Presbyterian Church, and her physicians: Dr. Perry Ballard, Dr. Matthew Burrell, Dr. Bill Barber, and Dr. William McClatchey. A private family interment will be held at Arlington Memorial Park.
