Dottie will be missed by many. She always had a smile to share & an open heart to do for others as she was led. Our visits were always enjoyable & although she couldn’t understand why we were not “race car fans” like she was, she loved us anyway! That was Dottie,kind & gentle.

My prayers and thoughts are with you all at this time. I met Dottie at French Broad. She had a very dedicated spirit in all that she did. May God bless your family in this time of grief.

Dottie was a faithful friend and a joy to see each week in the choir. Her dedication to her Lord and to French Broad Baptist Church is a memorial that will last into eternity. Our prayers are with the family.

I miss the sweet smile when I would meet her over the years at her home when I was delivering her mail. She was a wonderful lady. Prayers to the family.
