She lived in Las Vegas, Nevada for 25 years where she worked as a retail clerk for convenience stores and casino gift shops and later in life was proud to be head of the cleaning crew for the Liberace Museum there.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her father Elvin Hampton.

She is survived by her loving husband of nine years, Mark Shawn; her son, Shawn and wife Melissa Goodin and their children; Macaela, Gavin, Jaden and Summer; her mother, Mildred Hampton; brothers, Ernest Hampton and Roy and wife Ranveig Hampton; sisters, Donna Early, Gay Bruno, Elaine Hubbard and Cathy and husband Ray Inabinette; and many other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. She will be missed dearly.

A Memorial Service will be held at the First Baptist Church, 6400 Golf Course Rd. NW. on Thursday, April 14, 2016 at 10:30AM.
