Dorothy J. Busby

QUITMAN —      Dorothy “Dot” Jane Busby was born Sept. 3, 1939, in Oxford, the first child of David and Eddye Busby, both from Clarke County. She went to her heavenly home on Monday, Sept. 13, 2010.  Her childhood years were spent from Mississippi to Texas, Ohio and St. Louis, Mo., as her father’s scientific career demanded.

    She graduated from Lindberg High School in St. Louis and attended Belhaven College in Jackson before starting her career. Banking, automotive financing with GMAC, and insurance were the areas in which Dot worked through her career while residing in Jackson and Meridian.

    She retired to Marion and renewed strong friendships and church affiliation from previous years living in that area. Dot loved her volunteer work with Rush Hospital, as well as activities with Central United Methodist Church.

    She was preceded in death by her parents, David and Eddye Busby as well as her youngest brother Jimmy.

    Dot was a devoted daughter, sister, and friend to many people throughout her life. She will be missed by her brother, Gary Busby; nieces, Anna Grace and Sarah of Florida; nephew, Gary Busby Jr. of Ga.; brother, David and Kay Busby; nephews, David and Stephanie Busby and children Mariah and Miles, and Bryce and Evelyn Busby and children, Peyton and Meghan, all of Texas.

    Visitation will be Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., with services to follow from 11 a.m. until noon, in the Chapel at Central United Methodist Church, Meridian. Graveside will be conducted for those desiring to attend at 2:30 p.m., at the cemetery in DeSoto.

    In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Seniors Ministry at Central United Methodist Church in Meridian.

Do you think the city of Meridian should have tried harder to find funding to repair the dam at Long Creek Reservoir before deciding to drain the lake?
