Dora spent her free time making crafts, painting, and coloring. She loved playing board games, like Scrabble, with her family and she was a member of the Church of Christ. She enjoyed singing, making people laugh and spending time in her flower beds. She made it a mission that no one ever left her house hungry. In her younger years, she was a thrill seeker and loved to travel. However, she would say her time was best spent surrounded by her family. She was loved and adored by all who knew her. Funeral services will be held on Monday, December 30, 2019 at 12 PM in the chapel of Crum Funeral Home with James Maynard officiating. Burial will follow in the Maynard Cemetery on the right fork of Mill Creek in WV. Friends may visit at the funeral home on Sunday from 5 PM to 10 PM.
