Dorothy was born April 16, 1935, to the late Bessie and Buster Jones in Hartwell Georgia. Dorothy transitioned from this earthly life on March 7, 2022 while at Forsyth Memorial Hospital.
Dorothy was lovingly known as Mother Gibson. She was very faithful to the ministry, family, and friends. Dorothy was a retired chef and often shared her culinary gifts with her daughter-in-law and granddaughter. She served the community while working with Joe Williams (Food Bank of High Point). Dorothy worked closely with Pastor Barbara Battles (MeMa King’s Kids Learning Center, as the dietitian for several years.) The children called her “Mother Dottie.” Later she worked as a personal caregiver until her health began to change.
In addition to her parents, Mother Gibson was also preceded in death along with husband, Herbert Gibson, one brother, William Jones; good friend, Robert Jones and Dr. Michael Nelson (close like a son).
Surviving to cherish her memories is her son, Pastor James Lindsay (Lady Shirley); four grandchildren, Marjette Lindsay-McCall (Donald), DWanda Autry (James), Wanda Davis (Glenn), Derrick Lindsay; one sister, Bessie McInnis (Tom); one niece, Cheryl Holdman (Thomas); two nephews, Tony McInnis (Alisha), Ian McInnis; dear friend, Versie Freeman of the home, Georgia; her church family 3=1 Life Center; and a host of great- grands, great-nephews, family, and friends. Words cannot express her love for family and friends.
