Dorothy Lou Buffkin-Goodrich "Chic"
May 11, 1957 - January 20, 2020
Dorothy Lou Buffkin-Goodrich "Chic", 62, passed away peacefully on Monday January 20, 2020. She was born to her loving parents, Curtis E. Buffkin and Lois Ella Hagan-Buffkin on May 11, 1957.
Chic loved her family and never met a stranger. Although she may not have had much to give at times, she would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. She was no stranger to trouble throughout her life and would admit her wrong doings but after recent major surgery and recovery, she was working on mending relationships and making peace and she did just that. She went home happy and at peace.
Dorothy was preceded in death by her Father, Curtis E. Buffkin; her Mother, Lois Ella Hagan-Buffkin; Brothers, Kenneth "Kenny" Buffkin, Joseph David Buffkin, Don Buffkin, Curtis Wayne "Buddy" Buffkin, Dwain "Bo Hog" Buffkin, Michael Anthony "Pig" Buffkin, Dwight Windell Buffkin; Sisters, Twila Mae Buffkin-Martin, Lois Buffkin-Keller, Shirley Joyce Buffkin-Lambert; Daughter Dora Ann Hicks; and Son, Joshua Allen Courtney.
Dorothy leaves her memories behind with those survived by her; Sisters, Deborah Ann Buffkin-Gary, Laverne Buffkin-Roegner; Daughters, Susan Renea Degraaf (Ronald), Priscilla Nicole Wright (Warren), Sarah Maria Rivera; Grandchildren, Christopher Levi Taylor (Autumn), Destin Scott Taylor, Leslie Alexis Degraaf, Aubree Marie Ahearn, Addison Renea Ahearn, Connor Wayne Wright, Canaan Thomas Wright, Blake David Love, Christopher Carson Love, Derek Jacob Love; and 1 beautiful Great-Grandson, Greyson Levi Taylor.
If you knew Chic, you would know that she wouldn't want anyone to be sad because she knew where she was going. She would want you to celebrate her life and maybe even drink a Busch non-alcoholic beer like she would occasionally before she was called home.
Her memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 25, 2020, at Trahan Family Funeral Home in Pensacola, beginning at 2:00 pm.
