Obituary

Dorothy Jane Bell (Dot, Nana, Momma) 74 Born 1/16/1948 in Abilene, Tx to Herman Alton Swindle and Eunice Fay Roberson Swindle

She received her Heavenly Wings on 1/30/2022 surrounded by her family. 

In her early years she worked at Eaton’s processing plant, Pride Refinery, and other various jobs. She loved to take care of people which led her to become a CNA and work in home health for over 20 years. 

 However, She was the most fulfilled raising her children and in the kitchen making meals for her family and friends. Dorothy was not only known for her cooking but for her Special Christmas candy that she shared with the community. She was a beautiful Lady and very talented. She could do anything. She loved music and dancing and was always laughing and cutting up. Her beautiful smile and contagious personality will be missed.

 Her wonderful Spirit will forever be cherished by her children.

Daughter: Barbara (Dexter) Taylor of Waco, Son: Larry (Madelaine) Mansker of Rotan, 
Daughter: Janice Qualls of Rotan, Daughter: Margaret (Keith) Davis of Tuscola
