    Always known to me as “Aunt Dot”, she was my godmother and one of the most wonderful people I have know in my life. Growing up, we spent many holidays and summer vacations with her and her family. So many fond memory’s. She and my mother, were best friends and she introduced my late mother to my father back in the ’40s. They were married for 60+ years and remained close friends.

    I remember being in college at JMU and I worked a couple of days a week at the Shenandoah Herald. After work I would go over to her house for dinner and she and her mother would make me an unbelievable fried chicken dinner with all the sides. A starving college boy, I would look forward to that all week. Such wonderful people.

    Love and heartfelt best wishes to the family and friends of “Aunt Dot.” I will never forget her smile and easy laughter.
