She was the totally dedicated wife of the late Eugene F. Looney Sr. of which she was married to for 62 years, from which she will be laid to rest next to in Pensacola, FL.
Known to all as Dot or Momma Dot, she had four sons; Eugene F. Looney Jr. husband of the late Shirley M. Looney, the late Ernest M. (Mike) Looney husband of Patricia M. Looney, Terry T. Looney husband of Marie B. Looney, and Billy J. Looney.

Dot grew up from very modest means. She was self-taught and a woman of great pride and dignity. During her life she taught valuable lessons to everyone she touched.
Her family was her life and especially her grandchildren. Thus, her love and teachings will be her legacy that will live forever. From this she will be deeply missed by all she touched and knew her.
During her life she was primarily a homemaker. But, during WWII when many women were called to the workforce, she ran a burning table cutting large steel plates for war vessels. Her talents brought her many accolades. One, she was the co-sponsor for the launching of the ship S.S. Nathaniel Bacon. When the war ended she was the last woman to leave her department.
Pall Bearers are, James Miller, Tony Davis, Greg Looney, Ron Dollar, Ronny Dollar, and Billy Looney.
Service and burial will be held at the Chapel at Bayview Memorial Park, 3351 Scenic Hwy, Pensacola, FL., on Thursday October 17th, 2013. Visitation will begin at 1:00 with the service at 2:00. The Reverend Vann Bush will reside.
