On June 12, 2018, we mourned the loss of Dorothy Pockrus — beloved mother, sister, and friend — in Pittsboro, N.C. She died early in the morning, succumbing to a fight with breast cancer in which she had shown bravery and resilience for years. She met the many challenges of life and of old age with humor and resolve, right to her last breath. Dorothy was born and raised in Plum Bayou Township, Ark. A woman known for her generosity, wry wit, as well as her love of food, poetry, and birds, she led a full life and is survived by three successful daughters — Camille, Cherie, and Jean. After her death, she received a green burial at Pine Forest Memorial Gardens in Wake Forest, N.C., attended by family and friends. She is and will always be deeply missed.
