Dorothy N. Beasley, 88, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 2, 2024 at Hospice of South Georgia.
Dorothy never met a stranger! She cared deeply for others and would talk to anyone. If she met you, she took the time to find out details about you and would ask you about them the next time she saw you. We all marveled at her ability to remember names and personal details about everyone she met. Dorothy was born in Dublin, Georgia as the youngest of five daughters in a family of ten. After briefly dating one of her other sisters, her husband, John, chose Dorothy, and the two of them began their life together, having just completed seventy-one years of marriage in a Florida ICU unit, with John at her side and her fighting for her life. She lost this fight but she won the game of life. An avid games player, she enjoyed card and board games with her sisters, children and grandchildren. Dorothy actively participated in activities and played make believe with her great grandchildren. After retiring from USGS, she and John traveled across the country in a motor home before building their dream house in Conyers, Georgia. They also enjoyed boating activities and made many friends in Lake Hartwell, Georgia where they built a cabin on the lake. During her long retirement that exceeded thirty years, they traveled extensively with family and friends and eventually relocated to Jesup, Georgia where they thrived in a small town that included a new church family and a closer relationship with two of their great grandchildren. Dorothy was unable to meet her goal of watching her oldest great granddaughter graduate from high school when her life was cut short by complications related to influenza. She and her husband John, attended the First United Methodist Church of Jesup, GA and also enjoyed senior outings and Wednesday night suppers with their church family
All of her siblings preceded her in death and she is survived by her husband John, her sister-in-law, Edith Locke, of O'Brien, Florida, three daughters, Debra Beasley and her husband, John Kading, of Loveland, Colorado, Claire Scallions and husband, Kevin of Marietta, Georgia, and Jan Beasley of Jesup, Georgia. She is also survived by three grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 6, 2024 at the First United Methodist Church of Jesup with the Reverend Rebecca Duke-Barton officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the services at the church.
Private interment services will be held in Macon Memorial Park.
