Along her walk of faith, she united with Joyful Noise AOH Church of God. In her early years, Dorothy was employed with Coosa Valley Medical Center and Sylacauga Healthcare. She dedicated more than 25 years to being a phenomenal foster parent.

She married her sweetheart, Melvin Sears in 1975. Melvin preceded her in death April 22, 2017.  Their life together was a shining example of love and respect.
