An avid traveler, Bunko player, and game show junkie, Dot's real passions were her family and friends. Dot sought to instill in her children a foundation of faith, a zest for life, a commitment to family and friends, and the power of a kind word or the power of a smile. She had the magnificent ability to uplift anyone she was near with her infectious laugh.
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". She embraced life, celebrated friendships, and encouraged so many to believe in themselves friend or acquaintance. Her light and joy will be forever missed and celebrated by family and friends.
Until we meet again.
