Dot worked as a secretary at Woodside Mill and Dunean Elementary School. She enjoyed cooking, baking, golfing, walking, reading her Bible, and spending time with her family and friends on Fripp Island. She spent her last years as a resident of The Gardens at Eastside Assisted Living and Memory Care Center.
