Family visitation will be held Saturday, May 16 at Marshall and Marshall Funeral Home in Hillsboro from 10-12:00, with graveside service to follow at the Vaughan Cemetery at 1:00 pm. While all are welcome, during this time of the COVID-19 virus, family is aware that many friends and loved ones will elect to avoid gathering to limit contact with others. We all hope to have a celebration of Dorothy’s life in the future when we are all once again able to gather together. Our hearts are broken by the loss of our mom, mawmaw, and great mawmaw. Nothing can ever take her place but memories of her will live on with all who were blessed to know her.
