Obituary: Dorothy E. Ferry

January 28, 1952 – December 16, 2019

Dorothy E. Ferry, 67, of Bedford, went to be with her Lord and Savior at 3:47 p.m. on Monday, December 16, 2019, at home while surrounded by her family.

Born January 28, 1952, in Brazil, IN, she was the daughter of Lester and
Maxine (Buck) Morris. She married her longtime love and best friend,
David Ferry, on July 25, 1970, and he survives. She was a homemaker and served as a pastor’s wife for nearly 35 of those years. She was a member
of Englewood Baptist Church until her husband’s retirement last year and
attended Woodville Baptist Church briefly until she becomes ill in
February.

She loved to travel especially visiting the ocean. Her greatest joys in life were her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed God’s creation and took many pictures of sunrises, sunsets and fall foliage. Her hobby was painting the barn art quilt boards. She painted several that were included
in Lawrence County’s Bicentennial Quilt Board map.

Dorothy is survived by her beloved husband, Dave, of Bedford. She is the
cherished mother of her son, David Jr. (Jennifer) Ferry and her daughter,
Kimberly (Jeff) Wray, all of Bedford and loving and devoted grandmother
to Isaiah and Marissa Wray, Rachel and Claire Sorrells, and Ian Ferry.
Dorothy is also survived by her sister, Linda Morris, and brothers, Jim
Morris and Tony (Becky) Morris. She also leaves many other family
members and friends who will sadly miss her.

As her illness progressed, her husband, Dave, and daughter, Kimberly were tirelessly by her side. She was blessed to have the love and dedication of her devoted caregivers throughout her battle.

Dorothy had a long-standing relationship with God. She shared God’s love with all who knew her. She spent her life as a hardworking, dedicated, faithful and loving woman. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

A celebration of life service will be held at Englewood Baptist Church on Friday, December 20th at 10 a.m. with Pastor Glenn Hamer and Pastor Stephen Carter officiating.

Memorial Contributions may be made Dorothy’s memory to the Lawrence County Cancer Patient Services.
