Obituary for Thelma Dortch

Thelma  Dortch
Thelma Ann Dortch was born February 3, 1955 in Mobile, Alabama, to the late Arthur and Jennie V. Dortch. Thelma was affectionately known as Lulu by her family. Her family would describe her as caring, generous, devoted and most of all genuine. Lulu loved her family unconditionally.

Thelma graduated from Century High School in 1974 and displayed her talents as an energetic cheerleader on the Varsity Cheerleading Squad. She was employed at Vanity Fair in Atmore, Alabama for many-many years until she became too ill to work.

Thelma joined Greater Union Baptist Church at an early age and was a member until 2003, at which time she joined James Street Baptist Church in Milton, Florida.

God called Thelma home to Glory on Sunday afternoon, August 6, 2017, at Select Specialty Hospital in Pensacola, Florida, with her oldest son, Terrence by her side. She reaffirmed her Salvation to family members prior to her passing.

Thelma was preceded in death by; her mother and father, Arthur and Jennie V. Dortch; grandparents, Samuel and Mary Joiner; and grandfather, Julius White Sr.; and her brothers Ezell and Allen Dortch.
