Dorothy Lou Copeland
November 5, 1930 – March 28, 2013

Dorothy Lou Copeland passed away on the evening of March 28, 2013.
She was born on November 5, 1930 in Morgan City, MS. She was the
daughter of David and Luerena
McMahon (Meredith) of Webster County, MS (preceded her in death).
Dorothy married James Hoyle Copeland on July 6, 1947 in Greenwood, MS
(preceded her in death). They had sixty-two great years together,
three children, and three wonderful grandsons, who they adored and
were very proud of.

She is survived by daughter, Betty Jane of Roswell, NM (Luther
Pareo); son James David of Nogales, AZ (Linda) and Thersea Ann
Copeland of Spotsylvania, VA; and their grandsons, Seth David, Ian
James, and Matthew Edward Copeland of Nogales, AZ.

Dorothy was a military wife who traveled the world and enjoyed every
minute of the time abroad and the different places they lived in the
United States. After James retired from the military she started a
career in retail, did very well and worked her way up into
management. Then they retired again and moved home to Tupelo, MS.
They lived in Tupelo until 2000, when they moved again to Roswell, NM
and lived next door to their daughter Betty. They loved living in the
southwest and often visited with their son’s family in AZ.

Dorothy was an avid collector of many items; she particularly loved
to pick up odd colored rocks and cactus during her travels. She
prized her collection of brightly painted frogs and treasured her
collection of southwest pottery.

“You could not say goodbye to us, you could not clasp our hand; but
God has taken one we loved off to his heavenly land. You have left
this world of sorrow, and are free from pain, and now rest in peace
and comfort, in the blessed Savior’s arms.” (Unknown)

The family would like to give Ballard Funeral Home
& Crematory a big thank you for their loving
and compassionate care of our mother.
