Obituary

Dorothy Myers was born in Chicago, Illinois on April 24, 1930. Dorothy grew to have a strong sense of religion as a child from her grandmother, who she was very close to as a child. Dorothy passed down her beliefs to her daughter and granddaughter so that they would have a strong Christian foundation.


She was the first in her family to complete high school. She went on to complete a bachelors and two masters degrees in higher education. While she was going to school, she worked as a nail technician in her mother's beauty salon. She enjoyed watching her mother build her business and would later apply the lessons she learned in entrepreneurship after her retirement.


Upon graduation, she worked as a high school teacher in the Chicago Public Schools. She later went on to teach adult education in Chicago universities. Her passion was empowering women to support themselves and their families. As an adult educator, she taught Secretarial Science and when the use of computers grew more popular, she learned how to use them so that she could teach this skill as well.


In addition to her passion for teaching, she had a strong passion for music. From singing to playing the piano to writing and acting in musical plays that she produced for senior citizen facilities throughout Chicago, she shared her passion for music everywhere she went. She was an inspiration to many, including her granddaughter whose musical interest she always encouraged and celebrated.


She unfortunately developed dementia, which hampered her ability to continue to pursue her passions. Nevertheless, she was still able to watch her great-granddaughters grow which she enjoyed very much. She will be missed.

Gigi, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom, (Ms. Dorothy). Although we know to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord, the grief is still real. Know that your Mom's wisdom, integrity and love lives in YOU! You wear it well everyday. Continue to honor hear in your life. Ms. Dorothy was a special lady and I was blessed to have met her. I'm praying for you, Randy, Kris, the girls, Nate and all of those who loved her. Love you much, Debbie Jordan
