Dorothy lived a full life and loved being with family and friends. She was a stalwart member of the Hope Community Chapel in West Franklin. She exemplified the pioneer spirit. Dorothy collected antiques, taught rug hooking, enjoyed doing cross-stitch and playing cards. She loved to bake, especially bread and her famous lemon bundt cake. She also loved ice cream.

Survivors include her son, Allen W. Atwood, and his wife, Linda, of California; two brothers, Frederick Shaw and his wife, Edwina, and Hale Shaw and his wife, Yvette, of New Hampshire; and two grandsons, Michael, and his wife, Meredy, and Gary, of California. Dorothy is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
