Dorothy Shealy Stoudemire, 96, of Chapin, widow of Albert C. “A.C.” Stoudemire, died Tuesday, November 10, 2020, at White Oak Manor.
Born on December 18, 1923, in Prosperity, she was a daughter of the late Oneal Calvin Shealy and Minnie Inez Fulmer Shealy Amick. She was a homemaker who loved to sew whether it was making dresses or in her later years making handmade items to give to individuals. When she wasn't sewing or talking on the telephone, she would pass her time sitting in her rocking chair and watching the birds as they ate from the bird feeders. Mrs. Stoudemire was a member of Capers Chapel United Methodist Church.
She is survived by a son, Albert W. (Marie) Stoudemire of Chapin; a daughter, Janet S. (Keith) Fulmer of Little Mountain; grandchildren, Dana Dorroh, Brian Fulmer, Ginny Lindler and Donall Stoudemire and nine great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her siblings, Earl Shealy and Gladys Amick.
