Dora Nell Lindsey

Mrs. Dora Nell Lindsey, age 89, passed away May 31, 2018 at the Mississippi Care Center of Morton, MS surrounded by her family. She was born on March 22, 1929 to Noah and Mattie Bell Latham of Forkville, MS. Dora graduated Salutatorian of her Senior Class at Forkville High School on March 28, 1947, where she also served as Secretary-Treasurer.

On December 28, 1947, she became the wife of William “Billy” Lindsey of Morton, MS. and later reared five children. The majority of her working career consisted of working at Sunbeam in Forest, MS until her retirement.
