Resident Spotlight: Doretha Lofter
on June 19th, 2013 in Fayetteville, GA | No Comments
I was born on a farm in Dublin, Georgia on May 8. I had a great upbringing sharing chores with my five brothers and two sisters. I know nothing that I ever went without because my dad was wonderful.
He even built a school (Oconee County Elementary) for us and met with the superintendent of the county to provide us with a teacher. I completed my education graduating with my masters in library science from the University of Denver in Colorado. I became a media specialist at Morgan State University in Maryland.
I met the love of my life, my husband there who was a chemist. Before he passed we were inseparable for over 40 years raising one son and twin girls, which all are doctors.
I thought there was nothing better that gardening and shopping but no one has nine grandkids like mine. They keep me up on my toes.
I have enjoyed the peacefulness and joy of being here at Dogwood Forest senior living in Fayetteville. I enjoy Gardening, Tai Chi and Zumba.
