Mrs. Trawick was born June 30, 1940 to A.A. and Dorothy Brunson Parker. She resided in Seminole County her entire life and was a member of the 1958 graduating class where she was voted “the most beautiful”. She chose to marry John Emory Trawick, a farm boy from Iron City, on her 20th birthday and they spent the next 63 years building a wonderful life and family together until his passing on May 11th of this year. Dorothy Ann was a homemaker until her children went to college and then worked as the insurance clerk at Donalsonville Hospital until her retirement. Dorothy Ann loved her roles as wife, mother, and especially “Dottee”. She was her husband’s partner in his many endeavors – including the Peach Depot and their catered catfish suppers. She knew how much she spoiled John Emory, but she loved doing it anyway. As a mother, she was perfection. Dorothy Ann quietly made sure her home was always a warm and welcoming place. She planned yearly vacations at the end of every peanut season, supported all of Art and Sha’s extracurricular activities, and served three wonderful meals a day including dessert (except when she made John Emory take her out to eat.) For her grandboys, Dottee always had sweet tea in the fridge, ice cream in the freezer, and a special treat for them every time they came to her house (which was as often as they could).
She is survived by her children, Art Trawick of Iron City, GA and Sha Trawick Maddox of Tallahassee, FL, and two grandboys, Jack Maddox (Valeria) and Denver Maddox of Tallahassee, FL, as well as a host of extended family whom she loved dearly.
Dorothy Ann was predeceased by her parents, her husband, and her brother and sister in law, William Arden and Mary Ann Parker.
The family is so grateful for the loving care provided by Georgia Hospice Care, the wonderful staff of Great Gran’s, and especially Annie Henderson Johnson.
