Dorothy Louise Jones Harrison, affectionately known as �Dottie� passed away Thursday, August 27, 2020.

She was born March 3, 1943 in Jacksonville, Florida to the late Bud and Thelma Jones. After her family relocated to Fernandina Beach, Florida, Dottie attended the Fernandina Beach High School, where she excelled as a student and was an enthusiastic member of the cheerleader squad.

A true southern belle who would address her friends as �darling� or �sweet baby�, she was a smart and industrious worker. Dottie adored her family and would gather around her parent�s table for family get-togethers where the evening would start with talk and laughter and end with joyous hootin� and hollering. She enjoyed the beach and would daily go to the Marina for lunch.

On December 2, 1967 she was bap`tized as one of Jehovah�s Witnesses, and as a member she enjoyed regularly speaking to people about the Bible and singing spiritual songs with her sisters. Unfortunately in her later years she was plagued with health issues that affected her body and mind. She will always be remembered as the lively redhead with the sweet voice and contagious laugh.

She is preceded in death by her husband Russell Harrison, daughter Ginger Crespo, and sisters Bonnie Wylie and Becki Mertz. She is survived by her sisters, Kathy Sheldon (children Calvin, Carin and Carmin Litchfield), Susie Lawhorne (children Will and Rebeccah ), Brother R. L. Jones (children Tyler and Richie). In addition, Matthew, Brandy, Sidney and Katy (children of Bonnie) Courtney and Jenny (daughters of Becki), and various other nephews and nieces.

She will be missed by her family and friends.
