Born in: San Antonio, Texas
Resided in: San Antonio, Texas

Dorothy Ann Shelton, has gone home. She was loved by her parents. She confessed a great love for Our Father, and Savior Jesus Christ. She knew Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior. She shared love and accepted love. At the age of four she started following Jesus and continued to be faithful to serving Jesus, until He called her to come to sit at His feet. Life is uncertain but Death is sure! Sometimes it was hard but Jesus was her Solid rock and without a doubt she knew that He would ALWAYS take care of her. Nothing else is important but to Live faithfully for Jesus and strive to keep His Commandments, read His word and spread the Good News That JESUS is alive and wants to love you too.

To all those who loved me

You know who you are! SMILE I love you so

I love you all so dearly and I pray that in the years to come that the Lord Jesus Christ allows us to praise Him all together at His feet while HE sits on His throne in heaven. Now it is time for me to leave you, so I’m going up yonder to be with my Lord, and my Savior and some day I pray you will join me, so we can praise Jesus together. Now always remember, He supplies everything you need. Please grow in the spirit of Jesus and listen to the things that He teaches you by reading His word and spending time with HIM.

Dorothy is preceded in death by her parents: Saphronia and Alex Jackson, her siblings: Juanita O’Connor, Ruby Henderson, Clarence Wallace and her son: Frederick Buehler

  2. CandleImageYou will be forever missed. Have you ever met someone who’s heart was so big, they loved everyone? Have you ever heard of a person who was so spiritual connected, that their final wishes written years before death ask that the pastor to speak about Jesus rather then themselves? Have you ever been in the presence of a person, and their character fills the room? I knew someone who loved, believe and prayed for me so much, I saw the blessing miles away. I’m so honored to have had a connection with my Great Aunt Tana, that was so filled with understanding, teaching, love, family values, and GOD. I will often cry because I’m lost without your presence, but I will wear a smile because I know your with the Lord. I pray that I become a women of God like you was, and as your final family request was spoken, I understood the assignment, your will shall be done. Loving you until we meet again, Your Baby Baby💜
