Obituary for Dorothy Jean Garrigan

Dorothy Jean Kercheval Garrigan, known to everyone as Dotty, passed away in her home during the early morning hours of July 10, 2017. Dotty was born April 26, 1951, and was preceded in death by her parents H.C. (Kirpy) Kercheval & Mary Beth Tomblinson Kercheval. She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Mike, and children Mollie (Greg) Robinson, John Mark (Anne) Garrigan, David (Mary) Garrigan, Katie (Schuyler) Redpath, 14 grandchildren, her Mother-in-Law, JoAnn Garrigan Minton, siblings Howard Kercheval, Woody (Kea) Kercheval, Lib (Brad) Locke, & Sam (Cindy) Kercheval, and one uncle, Jack Kercheval.  Dotty had a contagious spirit and a warm smile for everyone she encountered. Her favorite flower was the sunflower, and she brought sunshine into every situation she entered.  A service honoring her life will be held Thursday, July 13, at 12 noon, with a time of fellowship beginning at 10am at First Presbyterian Church in Madisonville.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to the following: Door of Hope Blessing Closet, First Presbyterian Church Water to the World Mission, or Baptist Health Hospice.  The family expresses its deepest gratitude to the physicians, nurses, and staffs of the Merle Mahr Cancer Center, Baptist Health Madisonville, and the Vanderbilt-Ingram Stem-Cell Clinic; all of whom encouraged and treated her with the greatest of care and respect.  Thanks to the many friends who have shown love in ways too numerous to mention to our family during the past 3 years.Tomblinson Funeral Home Sebree Chapel is handling the arrangements.Online condolences may be made at tomblinsonfuneralhome.com
