Dorothy White Fewell
Dot was born in Richmond  on January 10, 1925 and after a brief illness and many prayers Momma’s last words to us were “I want to go home,” and within a week she passed away peacefully with her children by her side when the angels came to take her home to be with her heavenly Father on March 1, 2010.

Dot was the daughter of the late Reverend Edgar B. White and Nellie Ora Brown White. She was predeceased by her only sibling, Frances White Snead of Point of Fork, Va., and an adored daughter, Nell Elizabeth (Betsy) Paret Wilkinson of Manakin Sabot, as well as a special grandson, Matthew (Matty) Wayne Paret of Camden Wyoming, Del.

Dot retired from the Medical College of Virginia Hospital after over 30 years of service as an office manager for both the Departments of OB-GYN and Rheumatology.    

Our Mother lived a full life filled with peace from the Lord and she was cherished by her children.  

She was a blessing to all who knew her with her soft heart and quick wit.  She had a wonderful sense of humor that shined the brightest when all her children were gathered around her. She will be greatly missed by her friends and family.  Though there is a profound sense of loss here on earth there is also a profound sense of gain in heaven. With her passing, another star sparkles brightly in the heavens.

Left to cherish her memory are her children, Wayne Ray Paret (Mary) of Camden Wyoming, Del., Rose Linda Paret (Skip) of Glen Allen, Bonnie Guy Emerson of Ocala, Fla.,  and Robin Guy DeRubeis (Carl) of Midlothian; nine grandchildren, David and Cherie Smith, Tim and Chris Paret, Heath Wilkinson, Andrew Wash, Ashley Weakley and Hunter and Grace Sylvester; and 11 great-grandchildren.  

Dottie, a resident of Kilmarnock, will always be remembered for her love of the Rivah and antiques.

A memorial service will be held at Bethia United Methodist Church at 10700 Winterpock Road, Chesterfield, on March 27 at 11 a.m.
