She is also survived by her nieces Jennifer Culbreth of Kinston, NC and Katie Tanner of Summerville, SC and her nephew Christopher Tanner of Kinston, NC. Also left to treasure her memory are 12 surviving first cousins. Several of Teresa’s Richmond friends considered Dot as their second mother.

She was a member of the former Center United Church of Christ and was retired as a Trust Officer with Bank of America after 40 years of service. She was actively involved in the Halifax Woman’s Club and the American Business Women’s Association prior to moving to Richmond.  

Dot will be remembered as a strong, independent woman with a good head for business. She always wanted to look her best and kept an immaculate home and yard! She was the eldest of 20 first cousins and always looked forward to gathering with them at the annual Family Reunion at her grandparents’ “Homeplace”.
