Cecil Whig - - & -

Mrs. Doris Irene “Dot­tie” Tribble, 81, of North Wilkes­boro, NC, died Thurs­day, March 31, 2016 at Wilkes Se­nior Vil­lage. She was born Sept. 1, 1934 in Ashe County to Don­ald Carl and Myr­tle Ruth John­ston Owens. She was a mem­ber of Fish­ing Creek Bap­tist Church. Mrs. Tribble was pre­ceded in death by her par­ents; her hus­band, Lee Roy Tribble; sib­lings, Louise Phillips, Brenda An­der­son, Don­ald Carl Owens Jr., Jerry Owens, Joe Owens, Wil­liam Owens; step fa­ther, Bruce Webb; and son-in-law, Brian Swaim.

Dot­tie de­voted her life to her faith in God, her lov­ing hus­band of 56 years un­til his pass­ing in 2006, and to her chil­dren. Early in her mar­ried life she spent most of her time ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing the ul­ti­mate lov­ing care of her chil­dren. Prior to that she was em­ployed at the Univer­sity of Delaware. She and her hus­band raised their chil­dren in a lov­ing and self sac­ri­fic­ing man­ner. As her fam­ily grew, her love was show­ered upon her grand­chil­dren, whom she cher­ished and they in re­turn loved her dearly. She left a legacy of kind­ness and hu­mil­ity. She touched so many lives through­out her life and was a bless­ing to all she came in con­tact with. Our loss here on earth was Heaven’s gain.

Sur­viv­ing are her son, Tim Tribble and wife Sherri W. of North Wilkes­boro; four daugh­ters, De­bra Davis and hus­band Carl of North East, MD, Sheila Adams and fi­ancée Lee Gor­don of East Bend, Michelle L. Luff­man and hus­band Bobby of Roar­ing River, Lisa E. Fields and hus­band Thomas L. of Mary­land; brother, Jimmy Owens and wife Peggy of Millers Creek; sis­ter, Karen Tester­man and hus­band Mike of Wilkes­boro; 12 grand­chil­dren; 10 great grand­chil­dren; 3 great grand­chil­dren on the way; hon­orary son-in-law, Joe Adams of North Wilkes­boro; sev­eral nieces and neph­ews.
