Dorothy  Lynn


Dorothy Berthina Phillips Lynn, 99, entered into this life on October 29, 1919, and passed away on June 24, 2019.
A graveside service will be held on Friday, June 28 at 3 p.m. at the Elmore City Cemetery with Reverend Charles Dean officiating.
Born in Foster, Oklahoma, the eldest of 11 children, to Annie and Jack Phillips, Dorothy grew up on the family farm and attended school in Elmore City. She moved to Tracey, California with her husband, Otis, and had three children, Dolores, LeSana and Donnie.
The family returned to Oklahoma and raised their kids in Garvin County. Dorothy was a resident of Pauls Valley for over 60 years. She was proud to live independently and drive her blue 1969 Chevy Camero to church and the grocery store.
Dorothy also enjoyed visiting with her family, writing in her journals, going to church at the Assembly of God, and sharing a sweet tooth passed down from Granny Annie.
Dorothy is preceded in death by her parents, Jack and Annie Phillips; siblings - Jay Phillips, Loyce Phillips, Gerald Phillips, Kenneth Phillips, Norma Gordon, Thell Phillips and Shirley Phillips; and children, Delores Lynn and Donnie Lynn.
Dorothy is survived by her brothers - Bill Phillips of Wynnewood, Oklahoma, Doyle Phillips of Vallejo, California, and Larry Phillips of Moore, Oklahoma; daughter, LeSana Carter of Paoli, Oklahoma; grandchildren - Donnie Carter of Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, Cissy Miller of Paoli, Oklahoma, Sidney Eastwood of Moore, Oklahoma, and Preston Lynn of Fayetteville, Arkansas; great-grandson, Colton Miller of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and a host of extended relatives, friends and church family.
On behalf of your daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, you've blessed us with a lifetime of love and memories that we will carry in our hearts until we meet again.
