Dotty was born and raised in Austin, Texas, one of the three daughters to Kenneth and Mildred Threadgill. Her parents owned Threadgill's restaurant in Austin, TX where she and her friends used to sing on a regular basis. Janice Joplin began her career with Dotty's dad and came over often to Dotty's house so that Mildred could help her tame her wild hair, while stopping to sing with Kenneth and the band. She was an accomplised pianist, guitar player, and attended the University of Texas.
As a young woman, Dotty enjoyed life traveling, salt water fishing, tubing down the Guadalupe, cooking, as well as playing bingo. Dotty had a life filled with great adventure, no regrets, and could always be counted on for speaking her mind in a soft and caring manner.
After she and Jimmie were married, they began their journey together. A journey that included many years of traveling through Mexico by car, along with numerous trips to the Carribean Islands. During their forty-three years of marriage, their life together was filled with love and adoration for each other.
Dotty made many wonderful friends throughout the years in an organization that helped her greatly. She recently celebrated 34 years of continued AA sobriety, in addition to being a cancer survivor of twenty one years.
Dotty was an inspiration to many people during her life, but will be remembered mostly for the great love that she had for her family. In lieu of flowers, memorials to: MD Anderson Cancer Center, P.O. Box 4486, Houston, TX 77210 or AA, call #212.870.3400 for donation information.
