Obituary for Mrs. Dorothy A. Melton

Mrs. Dorothy A. Melton passed. Celebration of Life will be held Sat., Dec. 15, 11 am CST at Elyton Missionary Baptist Church 7031 Co Rd 63 Plantersville, Alabama.

Dorothy T’anna Alexander Melton was born February 21, 1934 to Capus and Sylvia Alexander. She was the baby of seven children, and her family included Thomas J. Alexander, Charles L. Alexander, Capus Alexander Jr., John A. Alexander, Minne C. Alexander and Eddie B. Alexander.

She confessed Christ at an early age and sang in the choir frequently with lovely praises to the Lord. At the age of eighteen she married David Melton and they started their life together that spanned many years. They gave birth to three daughters; Patricia Ann Long, Michelle Denise Melton and Sophia Lolita Melton.

Dorothy, known to many as “Dot”, was also known to sing with a beautiful voice and play a mean guitar. She loved music and had a keen love for life and adored her family.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her eldest daughter Patricia Ann Long and her son-in-law Timothy Wayne Long of Birmingham, Alabama; youngest daughter Sophia Lolita Melton of Ellenwood, Georgia; three granddaughters Michelle Nicole Melton of Ellenwood, Georgia, Felicia Teanna Long of Birmingham, Alabama and Stephanie Agaza Long of Boston Massachusetts, brother-in-law Bryant Melton Jr, and Carolyn Melton Goode; and several nieces, nephews, and friends.
