In Loving Memory

~ Mother ~ Grandmother ~ Sister ~ Great-Grandmother ~ Friend ~


To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged, Dot’s family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following


Team Fierce & Fabulous

jdrf Central Virginia chapter

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Their strength lies in their exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D. JDRF works every day to change the reality of this disease for millions of people—and to prevent anyone else from ever knowing it—by funding research, advocating for government support of research and new therapies, ensuring new therapies come to market and connecting and engaging the T1D community.

The Fierce & Fabulous team is made up of several DANCE families who have made it their mission to inform, educate and make a difference in finding a cure for diabetes. Dance has taught these girls to be confident and passionate about doing what they love, carrying it through to their everyday lives.

Memorial contributions made in honor of Dot will be directed to Team Fierce & Fabulous in their fundraising efforts for the Central Virginia Chapter of the JDRF.

Sheltering Arms Foundation

In 1889 with the help of her sewing circle and a few friends, Rebekah Peterkin was able to see her dedicated mission of helping working families of Richmond, Virginia have access to free health care with the establishment of the Sheltering Arms Hospital. Recognizing an unmet need in the continuum of care, Sheltering Arms re-established itself in January of 1981, becoming the first private free standing physical rehabilitation hospital in Virginia. It continues to offer dedicated care to the residents of the Richmond area, regardless of their ability to pay.
