Dorothy Gross

Dorothy Weddington Gross, 83, of Stone Coal Road, lost her battle with Alzheimer’s and was reunited with her late husband at the home they shared since 1963.

She is the daughter of the late Woodrow Wilson Weddington and Susie Bunch Weddington; and the beloved widow of Emerson Gross.

She is survived by five sisters and one brother, Maydel Cochern (Herbert), Jetann Burnette (James), Rita Carter (David) and Sandra Slone (Steven), all of Stone Coal, Avanail “Ava” Mitchell (Columbus Sward), of Clevengers Branch, and John Stanley Weddington, of Inez; several nieces and nephews; and a host of great-nieces and great-nephews.

Life without Dorothy will certainly be sad and lonely. Everyone that knew her has such fond memories. She was kind, hardworking, a good neighbor, a devoted wife and a wonderful, loving daughter and sister. She was a mother figure, grandmother figure, and in her earlier years, a caregiver to numerous children.

She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, July 20, 2019, at the Thacker Memorial Funeral Home Chapel with Jerry Bliffen officiating. Burial will follow at the Bunch Cemetery, Stone Coal. Arrangements are under the direction of the Thacker Memorial Funeral Home of Pikeville.
