Nana dearly loved and cherished her family and friends. She found great joy in supporting her children and grandkids, always encouraging them through the good times and the bad. She was an effortlessly kind matriarch, and always found a way to brighten a conversation with positivity and support.
She enjoyed quilting, volunteering at church, and praising Jesus through song. Craft nights with close friends Lisa Nations, Richard Parker, Mary Winningham and others were a regular occurrence. She relished family reunions, holidays, and any excuse to gather.
Strong, positive, sacrificing, kind, and caring. These are the attributes that described Dot. She understood that every situation had a bright side, and if you looked hard enough, the glass was always half full. Her strength never wavered, and she gracefully fought her illness to the very end.
