Dorothy Reed Tucker was born Aug. 10, 1958, to the late Willie George Reed and Rebecca Ford Reed in West Point. She departed this life on November 20, 2021, at East Alabama Medical Center-Lanier, Valley.

Dorothy accepted Christ at an early age and united with the Church of Christ in Lanett. She often fellowshipped with her family.

Dorothy was a sweet, fun, loving and caring woman who loved her children, family, friends and her dog, “Tucker.” She enjoyed conversing with all whom she met; she would always make everyone laugh that came into her presence. No matter how you met her, her last words always ended the conversation with “I love you.”
