Dorothy Cullens Obituary

Dorothy Dixon Cullens, age 95, of Dexter, Georgia, passed away peacefully on March 29, 2024, in Dublin, Georgia. Born on March 7, 1929, to the late Willard Dixon and Alma Knight Dixon, Dorothy's life was a testament to her loving, generous, and faith-filled spirit.

Dorothy was the beloved wife of the late Grady Cullens and was also preceded in death by their son, Grady Royce Cullens.

Her legacy continues through her devoted son, Andy Cullens and his wife, Katie Gettys Cullens; her cherished daughter, Candace Cullens Johnson and her husband, Jeffery Wayne Johnson; and her daughter-in-law, Kay Lambeth Cullens. She was a proud grandmother to Larry E. Forth, Jr., Stephen Ray Lewis, James Jeffry Cullens and his wife Buffie Crim Cullens, Nicholas Elliott Forth, William Keith Kellam, II, Grady Carl Cullens and his wife Kelsey Dame Cullens, and Nathan Andrew Cullens and his wife Kaitlyn Ellyce Cullens. Dorothy's joy was multiplied by her great-grandchildren, Hayden Cullens, Drake Cullens, Corrina Cullens, Wills Kellam, Mac Cullens, Lottie Louise Cullens, Rhaelyn Kleaving, and Rigdon Meeks.

Dorothy was a graduate of Rentz High School and continued her education at Business College in Atlanta. Her professional life was marked by her meticulous work as a bookkeeper for Cullens Supply, where she retired after many years of dedicated service. She was a pillar of the community, serving as a member of Jefferson Street Baptist Church. Dorothy's unwavering faith was evident in her commitment as a Sunday School teacher, a role she cherished and held for over 50 years.

Her interests were as diverse as they were passionate. Dorothy found solace in bible study, and her hands were rarely still, often busy with sewing or tending to her garden. She was a nurturing presence, not only to her own family but to all those around her, taking great joy in parenting her grandchildren. Music was a source of happiness for Dorothy, particularly country music, and she was an ardent supporter of the Atlanta Braves, never missing a game if she could help it.

Dorothy's life was a living example of the virtues she held dear. Her loving nature was the cornerstone of her family, her generous acts of kindness echoed throughout her community, and her faith provided a foundation of strength and comfort to all who knew her. She navigated life's challenges with grace and always found time for those in need.

As we remember Dorothy, we celebrate a life rich in moments that touched the hearts of many. She was a beacon of love and generosity, always ready with a kind word, a supportive gesture, or a lesson in faith. Her unwavering commitment to her family, friends, and community has left an indelible mark that will be cherished for generations to come.

Dorothy Dixon Cullens lived her life with purpose and joy, and though she will be deeply missed, her spirit will continue to inspire all who were fortunate enough to know her. We take comfort in knowing that she is now at peace, reunited with her loved ones who have gone before her.

A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. A graveside service will be held at 10:00 A.M., Tuesday, April 2, 2024 at Northview Cemetery with Rev. Tyler Daniel officiating.
