Obituary for Alice Myers Dotson
Alice M. Dotson, age 96, longtime resident of Plymouth, NC, passed away on Saturday, August 28, 2021, at Carrolton of Plymouth. A child of the Great Depression, she was born November 14,1924, in Cherry, NC. As the daughter of a sharecropper, she learned early in life to make the most of what she had. She is preceded in death by her parents, Thomas Felton Myers, Jr. and Mary Elizabeth Barnes Myers. The youngest of eight children, Alice was also predeceased by her seven siblings.
In 1942, Alice married Thomas Oliver Dotson, and they had four sons. Their first baby, Thomas Eugene Dotson, died as an infant. Their three surviving sons are Thomas Newman Dotson (Heather) of Chocowinity, William Mitchell Dotson (Kaye) of Williamston and Rodney Oliver Dotson (Jackie) of Jamesville.
When her husband Thomas died in a car crash in 1969, Alice went to work to finish raising the boys, who all married and provided her with beloved grandchildren. Alice attended art classes for many years and became an accomplished oil painter. Her award-winning paintings now grace the homes of family and friends.
Surviving grandchildren are Kylie Dotson-Blake (Mitchell) of Chocowinity, Ashlie Lilley (Scooter) of Chocowinity, Thomas Dotson (Jiarui) of Syracuse, NY, James Dotson of Jamesville, Suzanne Stotesbury (Chris) of Greenville and Victoria Carico of Plymouth.
