Dorothy Lee Namirr has passed from this earthly life into the waiting arms of her Savior and Heavenly Father on Feb 9, 2017. Her healing is complete and she is enjoying a reunion with Leon, her loving husband of 52 years, who went to Heaven in 2012. Dorothy was a faithful mother and ladies Bible study teacher for over 60 years having provided Godly spiritual guidance to many across the country during her lifetime. As a member of Western Hills Baptist Church, some of her most passionate ministries were the Gideon's International (North Camp), the ladies prison counseling, and supporting orphanages and evangelism in Cambodia. She also loved the ladies Bible study groups at The Sanctuary where she made many new friends. She leaves a wonderful legacy of cherished friends and spiritual disciples who are serving the Lord today, and who will miss her. Dorothy, who was born in Columbia, Illinois, resided in Acworth, Georgia and is survived by her six grown children Dennis Namirr, Michael Namirr, Linda Chadwick, James Namirr, Susan Edwards, Mark Namirr and grandchildren Dustin Namirr, Daniel Namirr, Sara Lynne Sawyer, Derek Namirr, Marielle Namirr, Morgan Namirr, Drew Namirr, Meredith Namirr, Madison Edwards and Trenton Edwards (plus two additional chosen grandchildren Brian Eubank and Megan Wright). She is also survived by eight biological great-grandchildren and three chosen great-grandchildren.
