As a young woman, Dorothy enjoyed serving and worked as a waitress for many years before she decided to relocate to Detroit, Michigan. After Dorothy moved to Detroit, she met and married George Johnson on March 10, 1957. Later, Dorothy decided to pursue a career in cosmetology and became an awesome beautician. She was well known for her press and curls. In Dorothy’s latter years, she developed more of a love for the word of God. She believed in giving the Lord praise. Dorothy later joined Haven of Rest Church of God in Christ where R. K. Benson was the pastor. Many years went by and Dorothy moved to Pontiac, Michigan where she became a member of Anointed Word Ministries under the leadership of her son-in-law Pastor Gregory T. Heathman. Dorothy’s fun and humorous personality will be dearly missed.
