Dottie Lou Carroll
She was born on December 12, 1939 in Randolph County West Virginia. In 1959, she graduated from Richwood High School. Later in the year, on August 22nd, she ran away in the middle of the night to marry the love of her life, Jimmy Carroll, in Clifton Forge Va.
Dottie spent her time as a domestic goddess while raising three children, mothering her dogs, and keeping up to date on the latest town gossip. In her spare time, she took classes at Beckley College, sang in multiple church choirs, and served on various positions of the Quinwood town council.
Dottie remained an active part of her community, and maintained a deep love and devotion for the Order of Eastern Star. Not only was she a member, but she was a Grand Officer in the Grand Chapter of West Virginia. She enjoyed the deeper meanings of Eastern Star and the glitz and glam of dressing up that came with it.
This carried over into her everyday life. She loved to dress up and do makeup with her granddaughters and their friends.
It is suspected that dancing was the only way she was able to maintain her hourglass figure because she had a special disliking for exercise. It was no surprise to see Dottie dancing across the living room and singing with Elvis, all while drinking cup of coffee. Her sense of humor could make anyone smile as she was an especially talented storyteller.
She spent her last few years living with her son Jamie and being cared for by her good friend Denise.
She was preceded in death by her parents Lewis and Millie (Cool) Channell, and her husband Jimmy Carroll. Those life to honor Dotties memory are, her three children Tanyia (Ray) Montie, Jamie (Lisa) Carroll, Jeffory Carroll, and her two granddaughters Olivia (Dylan) Reeder, and Ali Montie.
Dottie did not pass her green thumb down to any of her family members, but they all share her love of animals. With that being said, in lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations made to the Greenbrier Humane Society (P.O. Box 926, Lewisburg, WV 24901 or http://www.greenbrierhumane.org/donate
