She enjoyed traveling with Edna Earl to Paris, France on several occasions and to Hawaii and other locations with friends. Staying at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta just after Thanksgiving and shopping for the holidays was a fun getaway for Dot for many years.
Dot played bridge, was a great cook, enjoyed entertaining and going out to eat at her favorite restaurants. She was an animal lover and her family always had pets. In her latter years she greatly enjoyed the company of Miss Kitty. She was an honorary member of Shades Mountain Music Club.
Dot had a zest for life that uplifted everyone she met. She had a great sense of humor and loved to tell jokes and she could remember them! She had two wonderful caregivers who made her life complete-Bettie and Elaine.
She will be greatly missed by her friends and family.
