Dorothy Mae Cole

Dorothy Mae (Buchanan) Cole, passed away on May 12, 2024 in Gilmer, Texas at the age of 87. She was born on January 21, 1937, in Gilmer, Texas to Wallace Buchanan and Vera Mae (Childers) Buchanan.

She will be remembered as a devoted wife, loving mother, and cherished friend. Her kind and nurturing nature touched the lives of all who knew her.  Dorothy created a warm and welcoming environment for her family, where love and laughter filled the air. Her selflessness knew no bounds, always putting the needs of others before her own.

Dorothy's life was a tapestry woven with threads of joy and compassion. She found delight in the simple pleasures—crocheting intricate patterns that mirrored the complexity of her own character, solving crossword puzzles that challenged her sharp intellect, and strolling through shops with an eager eye for treasures waiting to be discovered. Her hobbies were not mere pastimes but reflections of the depth and richness of her soul.

Those left to cherish her memories is her daughter, Anita Joyce Cole, extended family, along with her cousin, Velda Carroll.

She was preceded in death by her parents; son, Charles Kenneth Cole, Jr;  brothers, James Wesley Buchanan and Morris Eugene Buchanan.

Service's under the direction of Croley Funeral Home.
