Dorothy L. LaLonde went to be with the Lord on July 19, 2021. Dorothy was born January 24, 1926 in Mossy, West Virginia, the youngest of thirteen children, to the late Ernest James and Clara Lee (Shreve) Coleman. Dorothy completed the eleventh grade before leaving school to be at home to work and support her family. She was a wonderful southern cook and if you stopped by for a visit, she always wanted to feed you a meal. Dorothy loved her Liberty Church family and faithfully served in the church in numerous ways. She made homemade noodles for the noodle and chicken dinners, was part of the original group that started making the now renowned Liberty Church peanut brittle and also supported the church garage sales. She also served along with her late husband, Fred as they scheduled activities and trips for the seniors and made many lifelong friends in the process. Dorothy will be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor and ability to laugh. The joy she shared with those around often brought a smile to her family and friends. She is survived by her children, Gilmer Lewis, Anna (La Marr) Pirkle, Vera (David) Davis, Cheryl (Bob) Stephens, Kathy (Bob) Schrader and Sandra (Jeff) Wilkinson; 17 grandchildren; 24 great grandchildren. Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Fred and daughter-in-law, Lynda Lewis. A funeral service will be held Friday, July 23, 2021, 12:00 p.m. at Liberty Church in Grand Ledge. Interment will follow at Portland City Cemetery. Visitation will be on Friday at the church from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the service at 12:00 p.m. Memorial contributions in Dorothy’s name may be given to Liberty Church, 12745 Georgia Avenue, Grand Ledge, Michigan 48837.
