She Cherished her Family -

Dorothy “Dottie” Mae (Woody) Eshelby, age 88, of Lewisberry, and formerly of Mechanicsburg, passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 9, 2021.  Dottie was born on Tuesday, November 22, 1932, in Morgantown, West Virginia to the late Jesse Lee Woody and Edna Mae (Halt) Woody.  Dottie was the widow of Mylow “Mike” Eshelby, whom she married on January 16, 1975, and who died on July 23, 1991.  In addition to her parents and husband, Dottie is preceded in death by her two grandchildren: Cari Stailey, Jeremy McDade; and her four siblings: Plummer, Helen, Sadonna and Mary Catherine.

Dottie retired from Rite Aid after many years of service working in the warehouse.  She liked to play Bingo and played at many different locations.  Dottie enjoyed window shopping; and loved to try her luck at the casinos, where she could be found playing the slot machines.  Her family meant the most to her and she cherished the time that she spend with her children and grandchildren.  Her family will greatly miss the love and support that she showered on all of them.
