You are a huge part of my childhood and my adult life and I miss you terribly already. I love you so much and the only positive thing about your passing that I can say is I'm happy that you and Uncle Frank are reconnected and you no longer have any pain or suffering. I will always remember your orneriness and how you lit up a room. I hope there was a humongous party waiting for you when you went home. I love you.

Oh mammaw, how I miss you so dearly. I love you with every bit of my heart and loosing you feels so unfair. I'm glad I was able to be there with you in your final moments and hold your hand, and I'm glad you are no longer in pain or suffering but I would give anything for one more day with you to ask all the questions I never got to ask, to learn one more recipe with you or just to feel your hug one more time. You were the best grandma anyone could ask for and our family won't be the same without you. I'll love you forever and always! until we meet again, Shay

Choo will be missed dearly. She had an impact on some many and I am forever grateful that she was my big sis. I have many fond memories from when we lived on the farm with her and Frank. I truly appreciate that time and the experiences me and my younger brother had there. Choo or choo-choo has we call her, was so caring and giving. From babyshowers, 1st communions, to recipes of her rhubarb jam, and to organizing the family reunions. She would be there. We will miss you very much, but you are now in better place.

My mother-in-law Dodie, Dorothy Greenlee, and your mother Mary Ellis were best friends. That is how I met Choo and the family. This ended up being a big family of friends.  You are missed, but I know there was a big group waiting to greet you in heaven that included Dodie, Janet, Skip, Judy and Pam.  Love you all. 🙏❤️

Choo, I have so fond memories of our trips to Columbus when we were small.  My siblings and I loved visiting with you, Rea, and Ronnie. Aunt Mary was always so nice to us when we were there.  Martha and I really enjoyed the family reunion in Prospect over ten years ago.  Getting to see you and some of the other cousins was very special.  Thoughts and prayers to Rea, Ronnie, Callie, Noah and families at this time.

She touched so many lives.  Scott, Shannah & Bobby, I pray that God fills the void in your lives and helps you each day.  Ann Marie & Ron, my heart breaks for you as you bury your sister and best friend. Sending prayers to the family in this time of loss.

Wow!! I am just now finding out about this. I'm so sorry to Scott and family. I wasn't notified of her passing. She is with my parents and my sister and he is with his family and friends. Unfortunately I have been hospitalized since may about 10 times or more in the ICU department and I wasn't even notified about aunt Dorothy. Many thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
