Dorothy C. Holcomb

April 3, 1925 — July 11, 2022

Dorothy C. Holcomb, 97, of Moberly, Missouri peacefully passed away surrounded by family on July 11, 2022, at Meadow Ridge.

Dorothy was born on April 3, 1925, in Moberly, Mo, to Charles and Lenah (Wilson) Dunn. She graduated from Moberly High School and attended Moberly Junior College until she accepted a job with the City of Moberly in 1944, accepting payment for water bills, then moving to the City Clerk’s office as a collector until her retirement.

Dorothy was a member of the Carpenter Street Baptist Church, before moving her membership to Immanuel Baptist Church and lastly moving to Timberlake Christian Church.

Some of Dorothy’s favorite things were reading, McDonald’s coffee and all things sweet. She loved to travel so much that she had been to every state in the U.S. besides Alaska and several other countries collecting mugs and magnets as souvenirs along the way. Dorothy always looked forward to her Thursday hair appointments with Betty at the beauty shop. However, being a Grandma was one of her biggest accomplishments, she was always so proud of all of her grandchildren.

Her family will always remember her being so forgiving, welcoming, faith based, extremely loving and accepting.
