Dorothy Edwards Allen
Dorothy “Dot” Edwards Allen, age 83, passed away Saturday, January 21, 2023.
Dot was born in Shreveport, LA, to the late W.T. and Sybil Edwards.
After the death of her mom, Dot was raised by a wonderful grandmother until she was 7. Her dad remarried and at the age of 7 ½ she went to live him and her step-mom.
At the age of 16, Dot met and a year later married her wonderful husband, Albert Allen, who is greeting her on the other side. They had 3 great children. Ronnie and Jimmy died in November 1979, and Sandy, her wonderful sweet daughter, is still here.
Dot’s proudest accomplishment was raising 8 children. When her sister-in-law, who was a very sweet woman, passed in 1970, Dot took in her 4 children, Veronica, Mike, Chris and Tony and loved them as her own. One year prior to that, Dot took in Sabrina and was so happy to get another little girl.
Dot worked in the cafeteria at Richmond Hill High School for many years and Hill Billiards restaurant in Richmond Hill. She was a great cook and everyone wanted to come eat at her house.
She enjoyed word search puzzles, reading, and working in her yard taking care of her flowers and blueberry bushes. Dot was a true Christian.
Dot is survived by her children, Sandy Allen Langston (Bobby) of Savannah and Sabrina Moore (Burt) of Richmond Hill; grandchildren, Kerry Moore, Cody Moore, Christopher Moore, and Christy Allen; and 2 great-grandchildren.
