She was a cheerleader at Antioch High School where she graduated in 1949. Later, she also attended David Lipscomb University. She was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ.

    I loved Dot’s dedication to and love of AGAPE, her forthrightness, her energy. I have many memories of us working together, beginning on Westwood Drive, then Nolensville Road and finally on Trousdale Drive. She was a rock. Memories also of attending church with her at Antioch. I miss her laugh.

    Dot was always such a part of AGAPE to us. Starting when we were foster parents , and her taking all the pictures, and continuing as we became more involved with the Board. She was always available to help on any project or anything we had going on. Her laugh was so fun and always talking about Newsom and her family.
    We have thought about of many times through the years since she retired.. Our love to Newsom and the family.

    Dot was a wonder!. She was one of the outstanding staff that helped make AGAPE what it is, a joy to work with. When I entrusted a problem to Dot I knew she would see it thru to the end.
