Although primarily a mother, wife and homemaker, Dot held various jobs in her life, including Harbor Provisions, the Walton Tribune, Sears, Melinda's Restaurant, and Century 21. Dot lived a very active life; she enjoyed gardening, water-skiing, dancing, card games, and most of all, following and supporting her family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She did her best to stay involved in all their activities - from birthday parties, to following Bonnie's and Dotti's Girls Corps events, all of Eli's sports activities, and even Avery's and Marley's soccer games. She made frequent trips when she was able to Salt Lake City to visit Bonnie, Brett, Paul, David, and Sara, and did her best to get them back to Georgia as often as possible for family gatherings at her house or the lake, including the last family gathering just this past July. Dot was active in various church groups during her lifetime. She attended First Baptist in Monroe, Monroe Outreach, and more recently Now House Ministries at Great Oaks. Dot's later years were spent at her home on Reece Street, spending time with her friends, especially her dearest friend Shirley Breedlove, and getting by with help from her special caregivers, Bessie, Donna, and Rosie. Her last two years were spent at Great Oaks, where she enjoyed the many activities with her friends there, accompanied by her loving friend and caregiver, Shirl. Dot was a fun-loving woman who loved life and lived her life by her favorite quote: "Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all." She was loved and will be missed by many.
