Dorothy “Dot” Lee heard the voice of the Lord and answered the call by taking flight Sunday, July 5. God blessed the family of Boykin and Laura Lee on June 10, 1950 with a darling daughter in Fairfield, Texas. She was a 1968 graduate of L. G. Pinkston High School, the “Mighty Vikings” in Dallas, Texas.
Dorothy began her spiritual walk and accepted Christ at an early age. She was a dedicated member of the Third Avenue Baptist Church and received recognition for being a long-standing member. She served faithfully on the Usher Board and Hospitality Committee.
Dot enjoyed life to the fullest. Her hobbies were racing cars, event planning, cooking, traveling, decorating “elaborate” Christmas trees, and spending quality time with her family. Her true calling in life was to support and “ALWAYS HELP SOMEBODY.” God blesses us with rare and precious gifts. She has been one of those gifts to her family and friends, and her legacy will continue to shine through those who love her.
After being employed at Digital Equipment, Xerox Corporation, Monticello West Assisted Living, she changed her career path. She obtained a strong desire for educating children. She worked in the Dallas Independent School District at W. T. White High School for 17 years. Her students and colleagues loved her vibrant personality and encouraging spirit.
Dorothy’s parents, stepmother, Mae Boykin; brothers, James Carter and Chester Moody proceeded her in death.
Rejoicing in the Lord, Dot leaves an empty space in the loving family left behind. She is survived by her devoted daughter, Keisha Wines (Terrence); stepson, Edwin High Jr; three (3) granddaughters: Tamyah Wines, Kiara Buchanan, and Mercedes Medford; one (1) great granddaughter, Kya Lewis; adopted children: Sherrie London & children and Osmond Buchanan; and an abundance of other relatives and dear friends.
