Dorothy "Dot" Woolard

August 21, 1935 — September 24, 2019

Dorothy Anne Moore Woolard, of Folkston, GA, age 84, passed away peacefully the evening of September 24, 2019  at Southeast Georgia Health System - Brunswick Campus.

She was born in LaGrange, Georgia and was the daughter of the late Clarence Velpo Moore and Eunice Corine Funderburk Morris.  Known to many as "Dot", she was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend.  Traveling was one of her greatest passions, including cruising all over the world with family and her friend, Alice Peacock.  She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Folkston, the Birthday Club, and the Red Hats Society. Dot also volunteered at the Charlton County Hospital and for the Chamber of Commerce.

She worked as a bookkeeper for Randy Nance at South Georgia Timber Company in Folkston for 18 years.  Although she worked most of her life, she always had time for her many other talents which were square dancing, sewing, cooking, and crocheting. In lieu of flowers, Dot personally designed and crocheted the beauitful afgahan placed on her coffin. She also loved to read books and play card games in her spare time, and of course, always enjoyed all the shopping trips at Belks.

Dot is survived by her loving spouse of 68 years, David Woolard, and her three devoted daughters, Rhonda (Buddy) Francis, Judy (Ray) Canaday and Brenda (Robert) Mahoney.  Also her eleven amazing grandchildren, twenty precious great granchildren and numerous loved nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her father, Clarence Velpo Moore, her mother, Eunice Corine Morris, her brother, Tommy Moore, her son, Richard David Woolard and one great granddaughter, Isabelle Thiel.
