Dottie was one of the biggest sports fans you would ever know, just like her father, Pap. She loved just about any sport but her favorite was NASCAR and Indy Car Racing. She would adjust her sleep schedule in order to watch a game, match or F1 Race in the middle of the night. She was an avid reader and loved to go to the casino and play video poker. She also taught herself how to play Words With Friends on her phone and would play up to 13 games at a time. She enjoyed playing many types of card games, but thoroughly enjoyed playing Euchre and Southern Rum with all of her children and many friends.
Dottie was also an awesome cook and baker. She enjoyed cooking for family and friends anytime she could.
