Obituary for Dorothy Buchanan

Dorothy  Buchanan
On Sunday morning, August 5, 2018, the Lord ushered home Dorothy M. Buchanan, 86, of Waco, Texas. Visitation will be from 9:30 -10:30 prior to the service. Memorial services will be 10:30 am Saturday, August 11, 2018 at OakCrest Funeral Home, with Pastor Jimmy Dorrell officiating.



Mrs. B. as she was known to three generations of students, and Aunt Dot to her family, was born in Harlingen, Texas, September, 27, 1931 to L. G. and Inez (Bynum) Smith. She graduated from Baylor University and married I. R. “Buck” Buchanan in 1953. Dottie reared 3 daughters, yet she was a Mom, mentor, and friend to hundreds of students. Her most wonderful memories were the 29 years she spent as a librarian at Mountainview Elementary School.



She was preceded in death by her parents, loving husband of 53 years, and brothers; Jr., Charles, Ralph, and Harold Smith.



Dottie is survived by her loving daughters; Dottie Phillips and husband Mark, Lois Bevan and husband David, and Betsy Vandever and husband Ronnie; brother, Kenneth Smith and his wife Frances; four grandchildren and four great grandchildren.



In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to Mission Waco and Pack of Hope. The family thanks the wonderful health care providers at Providence Health Center, her Red Bud Circle neighbors, and all the teachers, staff and parents of Mountainview Elementry.
