After her school days, she moved back to the Houston area where she married Charles Scott Stagg. Together they had one child, Charles Scott Stagg, Jr. and in 1962 they moved to Huffman, Texas. Scott was welcomed to a family that included Charles’ three children. While in Huffman, Dorsey loved to square dance and to bowl. In 1982 she retired from her employment at Dobb’s House where she serviced American Airlines and moved to Kingsland.
In 1983 she became a widow and was supported by many of her friends. In 1994 she married Eddie Dorsey and became part of his family of loving children and grandchildren. In Kingsland she was a part of the craft community and continued her love of bowling in the Hill Country Women’s Bowling Association. Her battle with pancreatic cancer was short and her passing included passionate care from many caring professionals.
She is survived by her husband of 18 years Eddie Dorsey of Kingsland; daughters Ellen Ann Shumate of Cypress, Texas, and Susie Dorsey Stewart and husband Rick of Lubbock; sons Charles Michael Stagg and wife Linda of Alvin, Texas, Charles Scott Stagg, Jr. and wife Sharon of Echo, Utah, and Mike Dorsey and wife Dana of Austin; and son-in-law Del Trolinder of Midland; nephew Leonard Rogers and wife Vanessa of Sealy, Texas; niece Rochelle Rogers Wilkes and husband Cory of Katy; granddaughters Michele Shumate Clayton, Greta Hall, Sarah Stewart, and Nicci Hunt; grandsons Clay Stagg, Stacey Stagg, Shannon Dorsey, Shane Stewart and Paul Stewart; and numerous great-grandchildren.
Dorsey was predeceased by her mother; sisters Dorothy Rogers and Jane; brother Harvey Green; husband Charles Stagg; daughter Diane Stagg Trolinder; and granddaughter Kim Smith Howard. Visitation will be Thursday, Jan. 17 from 6-8 p.m. at the Waldrope-Hatfield-Hawthorne Funeral Homes in Kingsland and services will be graveside on Friday at 2 p.m. at Lakeland Hills Memorial Park.
