She was highly respected among the inmate populations she worked with. She spent the last 10 years of her life devoted to her family and many, many friends. She leaves behind most cherished siblings, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, her wonderful dog, Sydney, and many, many friends.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her first husband, Timothy Gaskill; a sister, Theresa (Adams) Freeman; and a grandson, Tye Anderson.

Dorothy leaves behind a brother, Lloyd (Paula) Phillips; two sisters, Linda Curtis and Lela Bradley; five children, Kathy (Gaskill) Anderson, Rick Gaskill, Angela Gaskill, Tracey (Sullivan) West, and Shannon Sullivan; 19 grandchildren, Andrew Flowers, DeMarr Greer, Brian Gaskill, Jahmar Sullivan, Timothy Flowers, Steven Gaskill, Tony Anderson, Dustin Sullivan, Joshua Sullivan, Dalton Sullivan, Kaleb Sullivan, Nicholas Anderson, Richard West, Sion Gaskill, Tabitha Greer, Takara (Flowers) Rodriguez, Tazia (Sullivan) Bailey, Shanna Sullivan, and Halie Sullivan; and 28 great-grandchildren.

We will miss her so much. Our Momma.
