Dorothy Jean "Dot"

July 16, 1937 - February 7, 2021

Dorothy Jean “Dot” Coleman, age 83, of Florence, went to her heavenly home on Sunday, February 7, 2021.  The family will receive friends on Wednesday, February 10, from 11:30 a.m. until noon at Williams Funeral Home in Florence.  The funeral service will follow at noon in the funeral home chapel, with Brother Jerry Balentine officiating.  Burial will be at Tri-Cities Memorial Gardens.

Mrs. Coleman was preceded in death by her parents, Gus and Lillie Mae Franks; brothers, Charles, Sam, and Dean Franks; and sisters, Mary Woodis, Ollie Rhodes and Betsy Franks.

She is survived by her husband, Pat S. Coleman; children, Regina Armstrong (Steve), Kenneth Coleman (Dianne), Cindy Martin (Clyde), Steve Coleman (Jean) and Margaret Brown (Roger); grandchildren, Jessie Scott (David), Jeremy Brown, Bethany Brown (Timmy Thigpen), Chris Coleman (Katie), and Leslee Gavin (Damien); and great-grandchildren, Laura Brown, Alex and Adam Thigpen, Madalyn Scott, Kaehler, Aidan, and Lily Coleman, Devon and Ashton Moore, Samara Henry, and Olivia Sandlin.

Family and friends will serve as pallbearers.

Sister Dorothy was a member of The Father’s House.  She was a true child of God and a sister, mother, and friend to many.  She leaves this earth having been a blessing and a light to everyone she knew.  She was a gentle warrior.  She would knock down the gates of hell while entering the courts of God with praise and Thanksgiving.  Never will the world know that particular brand of light again.  The ones she left behind will continue to reap the fruit of her labor in prayer.  We love you and miss you, until we meet again.

The family would like to express their appreciation to Dr. Danny McFall and Good Samaritan Hospice for their loving care.
