Dot was born June 18, 1933 to George W. and Athea Holder Duncan. Her siblings were Wallace Duncan, Raymond Duncan and Ann Henderson. Dot is survived by; three nieces, Terri Brookshire (Barry) of Piedmont, Tammy Norris (Jeff) of Rock Hill, Susan Lee of Newberry; four nephews, Grady Bell of Chester, Tony Starnes of Rock Hill, Biff and Kip Duncan of Newberry; great nieces, Tracy Ropp (Richard), Hollie Langley (Wayne), Brandi Hawkins (Doug), Melissa Starnes, Julie Norman (Scott); great nephews, Adam Hawkins (Haley), Brady Bell, Ben Bell, Jimmy Starnes; and many loving cousins. She is also survived by her dear friend, Frances Feightner whom spent many hours with Dot during her last days on earth.
Dot loved God first, then family and friends; she was a most loving, caring, compassionate person. She never met a stranger and loved everyone she met. She also taught her family to do the same. She retired from Chester County Hospital after 44 years of dedicated service. She was a greeter at Pollard Funeral Home and served many families during visitations and funerals. Dot was a devoted Sunday school teacher and vacation bible school for many years. She has touched so many lives over the years in Chester and she was called the mayor of Saluda Street for a good laugh. For many years Dot had wonderful neighbors that always looked out for her safety. The family thanks the people of Chester who looked out for Dot when her health began to decline and kept her safe by watching out for her.
God, family and friends were always there for her. She was the rare person that brightened the day of all who had the good fortune to meet her. She had a kind word and a smile for all she met. Dot was not the tallest woman, but in heart, soul and spirit, she was unmatched. Her family and friends consider themselves fortunate indeed to have been blessed with her company and to be able to benefit from her shining example. She will be deeply missed and her memory cherished.
Dot was a very special and unique lady who will be missed by many.
