Delores “Dottie” Linder, age 84 of Sheridan, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at the Laurels of Fulton.

Dottie was born in Powersite, Missouri in 1934, the daughter of Earl & Beulah (Couchman) Edwards. While working as a civilian contractor for the United States Airforce, she met a young man named Neal and on May 22, 1954 they were married. What started out as a young twenty-something couple has now grown into a large family which she loved dearly.

Her family which survives her includes her daughter, Wendy (Terry K.) Evans of Sheridan; sons, Mark Linder; Terry J. (Karen) Linder and Kevin (Crystal) Linder all of Elk Grove, California; grandchildren, April (Ed) Peacock; Val Wireman (Steve Taylor); Jeremy Evans; Becky Linder (Donnie Meadows); Ashley (Anthony) Benson; Amber Linder; Lindsey Linder; Aaron Linder; Brittany Linder; Carla Carfield; Melissa Linder; Ryan Linder and Kevin Linder, Jr.; great grandchildren; Sean; Brandon; Trenton; Evan; Hayden; Daniel; Angel; Ethan; Logan; Juliette; Anthony; Kylie and Noah and great great grandchildren, Jaxxon and Delilah. Dottie is also survived by her brother, Gene (Lynn) Edwards of Granite Bay, California; niece, Tammy Edwards; nephews, Mike (Grace) Edwards and Jon (Alisa) Edwards as well as many great nieces and nephews.

After her marriage, Dottie became a Domestic Engineer, which was something she excelled at. She was a very opinionated woman who would get along with you just fine as long as you agreed with her opinions. She was a member of the Eastern Stars, an avid reader and student of history. She became very involved in genealogical research and really liked discovering and tracing her ancestry. Dottie was also very artistic and in her younger years she liked growing and tending to her flower garden.

Dottie was preceded in death by her parents, Earl & Beulah; her husband of 53 years Neal and a baby sister, Sharon Edwards.

Dottie’s family is tentatively planning a celebration of her life on Saturday, July 6th, which coincides with her birthday. For location details you’re asked to call Simpson Family Funeral Homes at 989-291-3611. Dottie will be laid to rest next to her husband at Vickeryville Cemetery.

For those wishing to make a memorial donation in Dottie’s memory the family suggests you direct them to either the Crystal Theater or Crystal Township Historical Society.

My condolences to the family. Continue to reflect on your cherished memories together. Always remember that God cares for you and is “close to the broken-hearted.” May you call on Him in prayer for comfort and strength during this difficult time. Psalm 34: 18

I am sorry to hear of Ms. Dottie’s passing. I was one of her caregivers for awhile. She always called us her girls. I always enjoyed my time with her. Always a bucket of knowledge and great stories to be told. I ran across in my time hop a picture of me and her togther. And it brought back some great memories. She will. Be greatly missed 💜💜💜
