Dorothy Ann Wood Robertson better known by her loved ones and friends as “Dot” of Greensboro, Georgia, died Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at her residence at the age of 77.  Dot was born in Memphis, Tennessee on September 22, 1937 to the late Charles Eugene Wood and Dorothy Katherine Chick Wood.  She considered Savannah to be her hometown since she moved there when she was 4 years old as a result of a drop transfer her father had while working with the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers.  She attended high school at St. Vincent’s Academy for girls.  In 1973 Dot graduated from UGA, Cum Laude, with a B.S. in Nursing.  Dot worked as a professional nurse in many capacities such as public health, mental health, case management, and has also worked with the American Red Cross as a swim and canoe instructor.   Dot retired in 2014.  She was happiest when she was surrounded by family and friends.    

She loved UGA football (season ticket holder for the last 27 years), golfing, boating, fishing, reading, shooting guns, going on cruises, visiting the mountains, watercolor painting, home decorating, dancing, entertaining and cards of any kind.  Dot was the founder and Queen Mother of the Creme de la Crimson Red Hatters chapter in Milledgeville, Georgia.  She was a member of the Oconee Lodge of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks (first female member in Eatonton, Georgia), a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), office holder in the Milledgeville Newcomers Club, a Helping Hands Society volunteer at the Sacred Heart Church in Milledgeville, Georgia, a member of the Greene County Republican Party Executive Committee, volunteer for Oconee Regional Humane Society, and she was in two Bridge Clubs and starting a third.  Dot absolutely loved animals, especially DAWGS and currently had two cats.

She was preceded in death by her parents, infant son, Michael and a daughter Kelly Suzanne Lucken. She is survived by a daughter, Holly Marie Whitehead and husband David of Colbert, Georgia; and four grandchildren, Michael, Matthew, Kayla and Billie Michelle whom she raised from the age of 3. She is survived by other relatives and  many friends.

My very wonderful friend, "Dot" is in my heart. She was full of joy and fun. We shared 34 years of happy memories together as she was my first friend when I arrived in Athens in 1979. Holly, my heart is with you as you grieve her loss. You are right! I cannot imagine a world without her in it. She is at peace in the arms of Jesus. RIP Dot. I love you forever and always, "Barbie"

Dot was a lovely friend, always cheerful and ready to go and an excellent bridge player. I didn't have the pleasure to know her long, but cherished any time I spent in her company. Surely God has a special place for such as Dot Robertson and we will greatly miss her here on earth. May she rest in christian peace.12

Dot was such a sweet and cheerful person. She was a part of our Bunko club and we were all so glad that she was able to play with us just four weeks ago. She will be missed by everyone who ever had the pleasure to know here. God bless all her family members.

Dot, you will be missed. Your hearty laugh and wonderful sense of humor endeared you to all who knew you. I treasure the talks we had at the Del Webb Sales Center.

One of my "bridge buddies" and Elks friends. What I will remember about Dot is her determination and strength through the long months of treatment.
She was an example of sweetness and a fun-loving spirit in the face of adversity.

Dot was such a special friend and always had such a good attitude and she always had a smile regardless of what she was going through. She will certainly be missed in DelWebb. Prayer of peace and comfort for the family.
