Dorothy DeForet, 94, our precious and loving mother passed peacefully home to be with Jesus July 12, 2013.


Dorothy loved Jesus and very much enjoyed going to Jacksonville Presbyterian church. Dorothy enjoyed her family, she loved to cook and bake for them. She also enjoyed living on the farm raising and helping show Shire horses. She loved all her animals and never turned any away.


She was preceded in death by her husband, Demmy DeForet; and brothers, Donald and William Carpenter. Dorothy is survived by her daughters and their husbands, Christine and Glen Revere, Georgia and Paul Cools, Suzanne and Rob Robinson, and Toni and Greg Noiseux; grandchildren, Charity, David and April; great-grandchildren, Corbin and Trinity.

There were many wonderful vacations with Rob and Suzanne whom she lived and shared her life with until her going home.

Dorothy will be greatly missed but she lived well and entered Jesus' presence well. There will be a memorial celebration of her life for friends and family at 2:00 p.m., July 29, 2013, at her home.
