Dottie had a hard life growing up. She was raised by her grandparents in the hills of Kentucky. She learned to grow vegetable gardens and can the labor of their hard work. She loved to not only grow vegetables; but had a love for growing roses. She had lots of beautiful rose bushes in her yard.
Around the age of 50, she decided to teach herself to crochet and crochet she did!! She crochet everything and anything.. Dottie created beautiful detailed tablecloths, and doll dresses. You name it, she crocheted it.
Also, around the age of 50, she took up pottery. She made anything and everything creating ducks, geese, and watering cans. It amazed me the fine detail she was able to add to her creations.
She loved knitting and could knit you a hat, gloves, booties in a short time. If you were one of the lucky ones, you got a beautiful afghan made by Dottie.
When she laughed her face would glow and her eyes would sparkle. I loved to hear her laugh and watch her face if she thought should one was embellishing the truth.
Dottie had a great love for fishing and the outdoors. Anytime, she went fishing, she would always catch fish. She wasn't shy about cleaning and gutting them either.
She loved to collect recipes and would try different dishes all the time. Dottie was an awesome cook. It really wasn't much she did not like to do or try..

Dottie, you were a Saint and none of us realized it... We love you and you will always hold a special place in our heart.
