Dorthy Faye Holloway Flowers
Dorthy Faye Holloway Flowers, “Dot”, “Mimie”, age 76 of Ruston went to be with the lord September 21, 2012. She passed away peacefully at home with all of her family by her side.
A memorial service will be held at 10 am Monday, September 24th at First Baptist Church in Ruston. Dot donated her body to Louisiana State University Medical Center in Shreveport, LA, for medical education and research.
Mrs. Flowers, a life long resident of Ruston, LA, was the daughter of the late Idge and Dossie Holloway. A member of Cook Baptist Church, Dot loved her sweet “Faith” Sunday school class. She worked at Lewis and Company and then the Louisiana Tech Bookstore where she retired. Dot was a pink lady at Lincoln General Hospital and heavily involved with Alanon. She was also known for her pies and Sunday lunches. For the past 7 years “Mimie” has helped care for (and spoil) her two great grandchildren. If you knew Dot at all you would agree that there is one word that best describes her, selfless.
Mrs. Flowers was preceded in death by her loving husband Elbert Lee Flowers “Pete”, her parents, 5 brothers, Warren G Holloway, J.R. Holloway, J.B. Holloway, Marvin Holloway, Charles Holloway and a sister Shirley Voda. She is survived by her two sons Raymond Flowers and wife Dewana of West Monroe, Al Flowers and wife Pam of Ruston; 3 grandchildren Dusty Flowers and wife Ashley of West Monroe, Heather Flowers Yates and husband Zach of Ruston, La, and Daniel Flowers and wife Kiley of Bossier City, La, ; 3 great grandchildren: Jackson and Bella Grace Yates and Keelan Flowers (due in November); sister Nellie Theodos and husband Mike of Ruston La; sister-in-law Lucille Holloway of Ruston, La; brother-in-laws Archie Voda of Pascagoula, Ms and Billy Flowers of Arcadia, La as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
