Dorothy loved her family and never missed an opportunity to bring everyone together for special occasions. We will forever be surrounded by the love from our mother, Mama Dot, Nanny, Gran and Aunt Dot.  She was a member of Memorial Baptist Church in Murray, Kentucky.  She lived in Murray during the last years of her life married to Ralph Bogard, who preceded her in death. She cherished her friends at Memorial and counted these members of the congregation as angels among us. Dorothy moved home to Paducah in late 2017 to be near the family residing there. The move home with her boys near her and visits from extended family made her life most enjoyable.
