Dorothy Yeager Blake, 85, died on May 14, 2018, at home, surrounded by loved ones. She was born in Douglasville, Georgia, raised in Atlanta and moved to Memphis in 1955, upon marrying her beloved Jack, who preceded her in death by six months.

She and Jack had two daughters, Lynda Baddour of Memphis and Beth Pryor of Scottsdale, Arizona.

Dottie had a loving and generous heart and served the Memphis community for years in countless capacities, including Subsidium, Meals on Wheels, Town and Country Garden Club. The family belonged to Lindenwood Christian Church where she was Chairman of Deaconesses and was involved in numerous outreach programs, as well as Christian Women's Fellowship (Circle Leader). She had been involved with Church Health Center since 1988.

Dottie will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by her friends and devoted family who loved her dearly. She leaves behind daughter Lynda Baddour (Drew); daughter Beth Pryor (Michael); grandchildren Laura Biggs Bardaweel (Alex), Blake Biggs (Amanda), Ned Biggs (Hallie), Paige Pryor Bossley (Sam), Caroline Pryor and Camille Pryor, as well as great-grandchildren Henry and Betsy Bardaweel, Eleanor Biggs and Charlie Bossley. Warm gratitude is extended to her devoted caregivers Nancy Adams, Debra Land, Ann Prather and Kathy Bryant.

Graveside services will be 10:30 a.m. Thursday, May 17, 2018 at Memorial Park Cemetery.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers donations be made in her honor to Church Health-Memphis.
