In 1942, she married the love of her life, Kenneth Johnson. After his return from military service, they resided in Quincy, Florida for several years before moving to their farm in Mt. Pleasant, Florida. Dorothy and Kenneth celebrated 53 years of marriage prior to his death in 1995.
All Dorothy’s married life, she embraced her role as a Christian homemaker, wife, and mother of two daughters. Later becoming a grandmother and great grandmother the circle of love was sealed and completed. She loved her church, Gretna Baptist, and was a faithful member.
She is predeceased by parents, Fred and Mable Benjamin, Dan Shepard, and brother, Earl W. Shepard.
She is survived by daughters, Mary Elaine Pinson (Bill) of Mt. Pleasant, Fl. Nancy Carol Potter (Eddie) of Chattahoochee, Fl. and three grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. She will always be remembered by her beautiful smile and blue eyes. Mother fought a good fight and is now at peace and at rest with her Lord.
