DOROTHY ANNE MOORE WOOLARD

Dorothy Anne Moore Woolard, of Folkston, age 84, passed away peacefully the evening of September 24, 2019 at Southeast Georgia Health System - Brunswick Campus.

She was born in LaGrange and was the daughter of the late Clarence Velpo Moore and Eunice Corine Funderburk Morris. Known to many as "Dot", she was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Traveling was one of her greatest passions, including cruising all over the world with family and her friend, Alice Peacock. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Folkston, the Birthday Club, and the Red Hats Society. Dot also volunteered at the Charlton County Hospital and for the Chamber of Commerce.

She worked as a bookkeeper for Randy Nance at South Georgia Timber Company in Folkston for 18 years. Although she worked most of her life, she always had time for her many other talents, which were square dancing, sewing, cooking, and crocheting. In lieu of flowers, Dot personally designed and crocheted the beautiful afghan placed on her coffin. She also loved to read books and play card games in her spare time, and of course, always enjoyed all the shopping trips at Belks.

Dot is survived by her loving spouse of 68 years, David Woolard, and her three devoted daughters, Rhonda (Buddy) Francis, Judy (Ray) Canaday, and Brenda (Robert) Mahoney; as well as her 11 amazing grandchildren, 20 precious great-grandchildren, and numerous beloved nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father, Clarence Velpo Moore; her mother, Eunice Corine Morris; her brother, Tommy Moore; her son, Richard David Woolard; and one great-granddaughter, Isabelle Thiel.

Visitation was held Monday, September 30, 2019 at the First Baptist Church in Folkston. Funeral services were after the visitation with Reverend Buddy Francis and Dr. Randy Jacoby officiating. Burial followed at the Camp Pinckney Baptist Church cemetery.  Pallbearers were grandsons, Patrick Canaday, Trampas Canaday, Wayne Francis, Michael Paul Woolard, Joe Phillips, and Jacob Phillips. Honorary Pallbearers were John Thiel, Mike Leatherman, Shawn Wiggs, Larry Kern, and Joe Peterson.
