Dorothy proudly served in the United States Air Force at heesler AFB as a sur­gi­cal nurse tech­ni­cian. While serv­ing at heesler, she at­tended Trin­ity Bap­tist Church and met a stun­ning young air­man who stole her heart and soon there­after wed­ding bells rang.

She was pre­ceded into heaven by her par­ents, Isaac and Dorothy Miller; an in­fant brother, John; and her grand­daugh­ter, Gabrielle Flem­ing.

In ad­di­tion, she served as a preschool and kinder­garten teacher at Trin­ity Bap­tist Church hin­der­garten. Dorothy also later worked as a nurs­ing as­sis­tant at the seteran’s Ad­min­is­tra­tion Hospi­tal in Biloxi for sev­eral years.

Although her pres­ence and tal­ents will be greatly missed here on this earth, her legacy of love and ser­vice will be car­ried on in the hearts and lives of all those who learned through her ex­am­ple, who grew through her teach­ing and who were touched in very mean­ing­ful ways through her involvement, en­cour- age­ment and sup­port their lives.

They would also like to thank her friends and care­givers at the CHF Clinic at Biloxi Re­gional Hospi­tal who be­came part of her fam­ily for two years of treat­ment. To­gether, you brought smiles and warmth to both Dot and her fam­ily dur­ing some very chal­leng­ing times. vour pro­fes­sion­al­ism and great love for your pa­tients sets you apart, and for that your pa­tients and the Flem­ing fam­ily are eter­nally grate­ful.
