My Story

Dorothy Balsom was called to take her rest on August 20, 2013.    She was born in Eudora, Arkansas Chicot County on  October 27, 1924, to Jessie and Lessie Washington.   She was one of 10 children.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her father and mother Jessie & Lessie Washington, husband Willie Balsom; four brothers; Robert L. Smith, Otis Washington, James Washington, and Lacy Washington; four Sisters Helen Moye, Jessie Mae Washington, Luelle Turner, and Katherine Washington;  and a son Lee Toney.


Dorothy is survived by a sister, Effie Jean Washington, Oakland, CA; a son, Robert (Crystal) Morrison, Eagan MN; daughter-in-law Henrietta Toney; three nieces Sylvia Ross, Mildred Tatum and Luvene Jackson; two nephews, Steve Turner and Jimmy Turner; grandchildren Stephanie (Terrell) Battle, Staci Toney, and Robbie Morrison; great grandchildren Jamil Toney, Taylor Toney, Emauri Shaw, and Amaya Battle; great nephews and nieces; and a host of other relatives and friends.

Dorothy reverenced the Lord Jesus Christ and she lived out her Christian walk by showing forth His presence by serving in many roles in the body of Christ.   She enjoyed bible study and always reading His Word.

Dorothy cherished her family and spent all holidays and weekends with them.  She will truly be missed by all that was touched by  her life.
