The first thing anyone says about Dorothy was that she loved everybody and everybody loved her. Rarely could you go anywhere where she didn't know somebody. Her Son used to say he could have taken her to India and when she got off the plane, she would know someone! Dorothy loved her family - her infectious sweet smile and sparkly blue eyes brought a lot of happiness to whoever knew her. She loved her flowers and prided herself on having a beautiful yard. We always said she could root a broomstick and had ten green thumbs. Dorothy lived a hard life but never complained, she worked hard and anyone was welcome at her home. We all find peace now knowing that she has joined J. L. and her parents in heaven, and probably hugging everyone. We will miss her forever.
Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, James Eason "J.L.", her brother, Howard Oden, her parents, Ciecro and Gertrude Sprayberry, and grandson, Griffin Holt.
