Dorothy Louise Strickland

Dorothy Louise Strickland, born Feb. 17, 1928, passed away July 31, 2016. She was born in Berlin, Roger Mills County, Okla. She lived to be 88 years old and those who knew her loved her. Her smile would like up any room and her attitude was always positive. Her favorite thing to say was, “Every day is a good day if you want it to be,” and “Just call me Dot”.

Dot was one of nine children but is only survived by one brother, Jack Wingo (Lillian). She is also survived by six children, Peggy Canaday, Dwaine McIntosh (Kate), Michael McIntosh (Tina), Brenda Botts, Beverly Brooks (Robert) and Mary Barber (Tim). Dot is also survived by nine grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.

Dot was preceded in death by her husband W.T. Strickland, her two sons Roger Patrick McIntosh and Douglas McIntosh and grandson Joshua McIntosh.

An open casket visitation is scheduled on Friday, Aug. 5 from 5-7 p.m. at Sutton Memorial Funeral Home.
