The Guest Book is expired.
Dorothy "Janie" East, 83, Evansville, passed away at 2:50 a.m. Sunday, April, 28, 2013, at Good Samaritan Home in Evansville.
She was born to the late Eddie and Lilly Calvert on November 5, 1929.
She was the founding mother of Christ Corner Church in Henderson. She worked faithfully beside her husband, Pastor Russell N. East, for 40 years. She truly loved her church family. She shared their joy as well as their pain and offered her support and loving advice during the rough times. She was a constant source of strength and support to her husband. She was truly a "virtuous woman."
Her family was her passion. She enjoyed camping and fishing (only with a cane pole), and late night games of Rook. She loved the mountains of Kentucky and Tennessee. She preferred the green trees and quiet streams over the ocean any day. Her love for flowers was evident in her roses. She would rather be outside planting flowers than inside shopping.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Pastor Russell N. East, who died December 23, 2001; and one son, John East, who died January 31, 2005.
Survivors include three daughters, Vicki Culbertson and her husband, Phil, Patti Grace, and Kim Sullenger and her husband, Jim, all of Evansville; five grandchildren, Ashley DeTalente, Caleb Donahoo, Heather Williams, Aaron Culbertson, and Pastor Phillip Culbertson; eight great-grandchildren, Addison, Rebecca, Josiah, Christian, Kylee, Cassius, Summer, and Jayci; nieces and nephews.
Services will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Christ Corner Church. Pastor Phillip Culbertson will officiate. Burial will be in Park Lawn Cemetery in Evansville.
Friends may call from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Rudy-Rowland Funeral Home in Henderson and after 10 a.m. Wednesday at the church.
Expressions of sympathy may take the form of contributions to Christ Corner Church.
We would like to express our gratitude to the staff at Good Samaritan Home for all the love and care given to our mom. West Unit, you are fantastic.
