Dorothy Chilldres

August 12, 1937 — July 1, 2016

On Friday, July 1 st Dorothy Irene Chilldres went to be with our Lord and Savior while surrounded by her loving family. Dorothy was born August 12, 1937 in Little Rock Arkansas to Thomas Jefferson “TJ” Hughes, Jr. and Virgie Leona Hughes

She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Horace Edwin Chilldres of Lonoke; children, Charles (Caryl) Chilldres of Lonoke, Larry (Sarah) Chilldres of Maumelle, Sandra (Pat) Parnell of Lonoke; grandchildren, Tanya (Larry) Slaughter of Sherman, Texas, Charles Daniel Chilldres of San Antonio, Texas, Ryan (April) Chilldres of Lonoke, Crystal (George) Adams of Jonesboro, Randy (Kelley) Chilldres of Little Rock, Shannon (Steve) Maddox of Maumelle, Chris (Brianne) Parnell of Lonoke, Jason (Amy) Parnell of Benton;  sixteen great grandchildren;  sisters, Laverne (Tom) Clark of Napa, Idaho, Mary (Art) Kaufman of Lonoke; brother-in-law Donnie (Joyce) Chilldres of Cabot; sister-in-law Diane (Darrel) Sumner of Sherwood,  and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents and sister; Margaret Ann Justice.

Dorothy was a homemaker and a shop owner. She was a member of Lonoke Baptist Church.  She became a school bus driver with the intent of ensuring her grandchildren arrived at school safely. After retirement, Dorothy and Horace enjoyed travelling the United States in their motor home, visiting every state but one. If you asked anyone that knew her, they would say she was the sweetest, most caring person. She was loved by all. She lived her life for her family and they were her greatest accomplishments. Even in the last months of her life, her face would light up with a visit from her great grandchildren.  Dorothy will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.

A visitation will be held from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, July 5 at Boyd Funeral Home, Lonoke.

Funeral Services will be at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, July 6 at Lonoke Baptist Church with burial to follow in Lonoke Cemetery.

Memorials can be made to American Alzheimer Foundation. www.alzfon.org .
