Dolores “Dorsey” Brinkley Mines, 68, of Millboro, Virginia went to be with the Lord on Sunday, September 07, 2014 at her residence.
She was born January 2, 1946 in Bath County, Virginia, the daughter of the late Hubert Brinkley and Lena Sampson.
She was employed as a CNA and loyal housewife.
Dorsey was a member of Westminster Chapel. She loved her family, growing her flowers, and sitting on her porch. She always enjoyed crafting, especially crocheting.
She is survived by her sister, Emma Jean Burris of Rural Retreat, Virginia; a very special nephew and wife; other very special nieces that helped with her care during her time of illness; her many great nieces and nephews; her very good friend and Pastor Helen “Punker” Robertson and husband Robbie; and her faithful companions her dog Annie and cat Makenzie.
She was preceded in death by her husband Ralph H. Mines and her daughter Angalena.
A funeral service will be conducted on Saturday, September 13, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. at Westminster Chapel in Millboro with Pastor Punker Robertson, Pastor Larry Brunson and Reverend Robert Sherrard officiating. Interment will be in the Mines Family Cemetery.
The family will receive friends one hour before the service at the church. There will be a dinner held after the service at the church.
We are deeply saddened to here that Dorsey passed away. Darrell my son in Wisconsin had made plans to come and visit her so they could talk about the family history, share photos, and just talk about our Dad, my Huband, the late Asa Thomas, his life, and Dorsey’s family as well. He is finishing the Family Tree for us and those interested in it. We spoke to Emma Jean a few months ago about it. “Putting the puzzles together” he calls it. He was very sad to find out she had passed. He deeply regrets life got in the way of his family visit. We are sure she is and was welcomed by so many family members that were waiting for her on the other side. Please let us know if you need anything and God Bless you and all in her passing, make plans to meet soon. Again you all are in our prayers, Agnes, Darrell, Edward, (Angie, Hannah and his son Andrew) Thomas.
