Obituary

Ms. Dorothy Atwater, daughter of the late Eugene Atwater, Sr. and Mary Perry Atwater, was born in Orange County, North Carolina on May 20, 1938 and passed away on October 15, 2022.

Dorothy attended and graduated in 1956 from Lincoln High school and was a Majorette in the Lincoln High School Band. During her life she worked for 40 years with the North Jersey Training School where she helped her patients with their disabilities and their families. She cared for them all with love and kindness as they all came to love her in turn.

Her dearest, lifetime friend, Joseph Pohl, preceded her in death but will forever be remembered by the Atwater family.

Dorothy leaves to cherish her memory her sisters, Ms. Ethel Atwater and Ms. Retha Arwater, both of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Also celebrating her life are nieces and nephews: Ms. Kimberly Fearrington of Atlanta, Georgia, Mrs Cheryl Little of Keansburg, New Jersey, Ms. Iris Davis of Jacksonville, Florida, Ms. Carmen Cole of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, M Martin Fearrington, Jr, Mr. Matthew Fearrington and Mr. Michael Fearrington, all of Ohio, as well as a host of other relatives and friends.
