Dora worked as a bookkeeper in the accounting profession before retiring. She was a wonderful wife and mother. She also worked as a seamstress extraordinaire for many choir tours and weddings at Summer Grove Baptist Church. She taught adult ladies Sunday School at Summer Grove as long as she could, then graciously continued to study and prepare in case anyone needed a last minute sub! Her favorite things in life were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, her King James Bible and Starbucks Frappuccinos.
Dora is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Mack Craig; husband, Raymond White; son, David Ray White; and her high school sweetheart and forever friend, Charles Arthur Wooten. Left to cherish her memory is her daughter and son-in-law, Ginger and Wendell Collins, Jr. from Birmingham, Alabama; grandchildren, Wendell Collins, III "Bo" and wife, Katie from Chicago, Illinois; Rachael Milner and husband, Ethan from Birmingham, Alabama; Paul Collins and wife, Tori from Birmingham, Alabama; great-grandchildren; Sydney, Logan, Fraser, Elliot and Bruce Collins; stepdaughters, Cheryl Howard and husband, Michael from Austin, Texas; and Lori Krouskos from San Antonio, Texas; step-grandchildren, Blake and Paige Howard, Chassity Taylor and husband, Harold; step-great-grandchildren, Bryce, Nolan, Lane and Hadley Taylor.
The family would like to express special thanks to the friends who are more like her sisters, for all the love and care they have shown and showered on her through her journey. Also special appreciation to Dr. Randy Delmundo and Dr. David Dies for the many ways they ministered to and served my mom. Their extraordinary staff walked so gently with her.
As she highlighted in her re-covered King James Bible multiple times....We are reminded in Psalm 90:12 - "So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."
