Interment will follow to Hewitt Cemetery. We respectively ask those that are in attendance to please wear a mask. Services are under the care and direction of Alexander Gray Funeral Home in Wilson.

Dorothy was born January 25, 1938 in Healdton, OK to the late Mr. Dewey Lee Garrison and Mrs. Bertha Violet (Martin) Garrison. She departed from this earthly life on Wednesday, January 13, 2021.

Dorothy graduated from Rexroat High School in 1956 and Draughns Business College of Wichita Falls in 1958. She married Robert Leroy Lerkins on September 6, 1958 in Wichita Falls, TX and are the parents of 3 sons, Robert Leroy (Bobby), Alan Don and Brian Jon.

When she and Bob went to do mission work on the Navajo Reservation from 1988 to 2004, she also served as a substitute teacher in the public school system. When she and Bob retired in 2004, they returned to Wilson. Her hobbies included reading, sewing and working crossword puzzles. But most of all she liked to study the Bible and teach God's word.

Dorothy was predeceased by her parents, Dewey in 1987 and Bertha in 2000.
