Sympathy and prayers are extended to the family of Dot Bethea. Dot was a wonderful and dedicated teacher who touched my daughter, Alicia many years ago at Erwin Middle School. Take pride in her life and rejoice in her peace.

Mrs. Bethea was a wonderful, caring, kind and compassionate teacher. She loved teaching and you could tell. Caroline, I had forgotten that your mom was one of my favorite teachers but I wanted to let you know how sorry I am about her passing.

Dear Caroline and Eddie, So sorry
in the loss of your beloved mother, her family was the light of her world and the conversations always included her children, she prayed for each one of you daily and looked forward to the many times you came to see her.
I know you are going to miss your mother. Ann Williams

Valentine's Day was a perfect day for Dot to go home to be with the Lord. She had the love of Christ in her heart and the special peace that only he can give. Her conversations were centered on drawing everyone to Christ. I'll miss our biblical discussions of prophetic events occurring in our world today.
