Doris Smith "Dottie" Catron

Doris Smith "Dottie" Catron, 83, of Roanoke, went peacefully home to Heaven on Thursday, October 22, 2020. She passed at home with her family nearby. She was born in Wytheville, Virginia on January 11, 1937 to William (Bill) and Gladys Smith. She married William (Bill, "Boone") Catron in June of 1955.

Dottie lived her life devoted to her husband, children, and especially loved her role as Granny. Ballgames and Christmas were some of her favorite times. She enjoyed her friendships and especially golf outings with her husband and friends.

Dottie remained a member of Berea Christian Church in Wytheville, Virginia and attended North Roanoke Baptist Church for many years. Her life was a living example of Ephesians 4:32 "And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ."

Surviving are her husband, Bill "Boone" Catron; daughters, Kathy (David) Harris, Jackie Ridgway; son, Billy (Lynnanne) Catron; grandchildren, Jacob Ridgway, Matthew Harris (Tara Peaks), Meaghan Catron, and Hallie Catron, plus one great-grandchild, Rylin Harris; and numerous nieces, a nephew and many extended family members. She loved all of her family and instilled in them strong values that have served them well. She will be dearly missed and forever in their hearts.

The family would like to offer a special thank you to the Heartland Hospice staff for their many acts of kindness and compassion.
