DOROTHY CHURCH

Dorothy Gray

Church

Age 89, died peacefully on Monday March 1st, 2010.

She was born in Batesville, AR as the first child of Marie Cooper Gray and Justin Gilbert Gray. She graduated from Abilene High School in Abilene, TX and was attending business college when she met her future husband W. Neill Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They were married in Albuquerque on July 25th, 1940. Mrs. Church was a homemaker and enjoyed domestic hobbies such as needle point and knitting as well as sewing. She was an avid genealogist and could often be found scouring cemeteries for the names of distant relatives long gone by. After raising her four children she turned to gardening as a fulfilling past time and the back yard of the family home was always full of a wide variety of flowers and colors throughout the growing season.

Mrs. Church was predeceased by her husband W. Neill Church and her brother, Justin Gilbert Gray, Jr. She is survived by her brother Theodore Gilbert Gray; her children, Chipley Harris and her husband David, William N. Church, Jr. and Jonathan Gray Church. She is also survived by 5 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.

A funeral service will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Friday March 5th at Grace Episcopal Church, 4900 Concord Pike, Wilmington, where friends are invited to call after 10:30 a.m. Burial will follow in the adjoining church cemetery. Following the interment there will be a luncheon at the church meeting hall.

In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate contributions in Dorothy's memory to the Grace Episcopal Church Memorial Fund.
