Dottie attended the First Christian Church of Leesville. Dottie was a lifetime member of the VFW
Post #3106 and the American Legion Post #145. She was a CASA volunteer at one time. She loved family and loved hearing about her grandkids and great grandkids and their accomplishments. She gained the nickname “Mrs. Kitty” while working for her best
friend Joan Drew. She never met a stranger, always believed in helping those that needed help. At times, you could catch her looking at all the pictures on her refrigerator and she would say, “I’m blessed to have such a large family.” She loved her
pets Frankie and GIGi and all the neighborhood cats she cared for daily.
