Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Rev. Arthur Haymon; her parents, John Sullivan and Bertie Ellafair Brown; 9 siblings, grandson Joshua, great-granddaughter Chelsea, and great grandson Brennan. She is survived by her children Jimmy and Susie Haymon; Jon and Rhonda Haymon; Ruth and Danny Robertson; and Kim Haymon and Vickie Cruz; as well as niece and nephew Elesia and Danny Davis, whom she helped raise; 14 grandchildren, including Bryan (Tammy), Virginia, Jason, Chris, Jessica (Rob), Jacob (Millie), Trent (Jym), Dan (Shannon), Bethany (Craig), Payton (Tracey), Jed (Amaris), Jordan and Anna Catherine; 38 great-grandchildren; and 12 great-great grandchildren. Dorothy was a devoted mother and wife, dedicated entirely to God and to her family. In every church to which Rev. Arthur Haymon was led, Dorothy could be found serving and supporting him through teaching Sunday School, lending her voice to the choir, or serving in the Women's Missionary Union. Her children were her pride and joy. No task was too great or too small if it meant lessening their burdens or lifting them up. She cherished her roles of "Maw," "Maw Maw," and "Maw Maw Dorothy," to her host of grands, great-grands, and great-great grands who found in her a staunch supporter and daily inspiration. For Dorothy, well-known for her cooking, especially family favorites like happy sad cake, pies, bread pudding, cornbread dressing, chicken & dumplings and her famous cornbread, family gatherings were the most important; she was simply happiest when spending time with family and dear friends. Dorothy remained an active prayer warrior for all of her life. Even through the bodily aches and pains that came with age, she could still be found thanking the Lord for the years she'd been given, for the food on her table, for the wellbeing of her friends, for the souls of those who did not yet know the Lord, and most of all for her family, who was always, always on her mind. Dorothy was the heart of her family's home, remained active in her church and her community, and was an unwavering servant of the Lord. Though she will be greatly missed, she will continue to be greatly loved. Those honored to serve as pallbearers include her grandsons Bryan, Jason, Chris, Jacob, Dan, Payton, Jed, and Jordan. A special thanks is extended to Judy Nichols for her constant loving care and friendship to our mother.
