She was born to Angelle and Julius Turner on March 3, 1922 in Port Arthur, Texas where she grew up with her four sisters, attended St. James Catholic School and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in 1939. She was introduced to her sweetheart, Wilmer Dorman, while working at Pat Wood's Drugstore, and married him six weeks later on June 2, 1945. They settled in Baytown, TX where for the next 40 years devoted her life to her husband and children, worked diligently in Redeemer Lutheran Church and made many life long friends. It is during this time too that her God given talents flourished in sewing, cooking and artwork, which included her beautiful calligraphy that she became well known for and has shared so freely with everyone over the years. She learned the sports of hunting and fishing from her husband and enjoyed many good times with family and friends at the deer lease. Following their retirement to Jasper, Tx in 1984, she spent the next 30 years very involved in St. Paul Lutheran Church and continued to enjoy fishing as she entertained many at the fish camp. She also got involved in community activities; jointing the Edgewood Garden Club and Women's Civic Club. She never met a stranger, loved to shop and if you ever had the privilege to meet her, you know that she loved to talk. More than anything else, she loved and professed her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, shared Him and His love with so many and always took the opportunity to bless and pray for others. As she progressed from mother, to grandmother and to great grandmother, she enjoyed having her family close by and continuing to make memories throughout the remainder of her life. She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 68 years and three sisters, June Pierce, Gloria Brown and Lorraine Lambert. She is survived by her son Randy Dorman and wife Charlene of Holly Springs, daughter Debbie Carpenter and husband Ronnie of Beechgrove, grandchildren Jason Dorman and wife Ginger of Nacogdoches and Meagan Keel and husband Melvin of Nacogdoches, and three great granddaughters Kaylee Dorman, Emma Grace Dorman and Sophie Claire Dorman of Nacogdoches. She is also survived by her sister, Melva Turner of Jasper. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to St. Paul Lutheran Church, P. O. Box 1080, Jasper, TX 75951.
