Age 95, received her wings on Saturday, January 16, 2021. She was a loving mother who provided unconditional love for her children. She worked as a Merchant Associate for J. C. Penny for 23 years. She had an eye for fashion. Dottie loved being with family & friends – just talking, laughing, playing cards, dirty board and she loved to travel. Our hearts are broken, but her heartbeat will be carried on in her daughter, grandchildren & great-grandchildren.

She married Eugene Walton on July 17, 1943. They enjoyed each other for 60 years. In addition to her husband, Dottie was also preceded in death by one son, Ronnie; and by her siblings, Katherine, John T., Morris, Nancy & Jerry. Dottie leaves behind one daughter, Joy (Bob) Harshbarger; one granddaughter, Tammy (Jack) Jennings; three great-granddaughters, Victoria, Kaitlyn & Alexa; and her daughter-in-law, Sally Walton.
