Dorothy Ann Madewell

May 6, 1936 — January 2, 2022

Dorothy Ann (Long) Madewell, age 85, passed from this life to her Eternal Home on Sunday, January 2, 2022, in Weatherford, TX. Dorothy was born on May 6, 1936, in Fort Worth, TX to John R. Long, Jr. and Ann (Kisso) Long. She was of the Catholic faith and was the proud owner/operator of Child's World Day Care for almost 40 years prior to her retirement.

Dorothy lived life to the fullest. She loved to laugh and enjoy life. She was happiest with a fishing pole in her hand, catching many trophy black bass through the years. She was a member of Bassing Gals and competed against, and could out fish most men. Her hobbies included: fishing, fishing, fishing, and taking care of her beloved fur babies, Fritz, Sheba, and Rommel.

After her medical diagnosis that bound her to a wheelchair at 72 years of age, she made the most of what life handed her and kept a stiff upper lip showing us all how strong she was. She made friends all along the way in life, some lifelong. She loved her family deeply and she was so proud of her sons, grandkids & great grands.

In addition to her parents, Dorothy is preceded in death by her brother, George Long.

Left to cherish Dorothy's memory are her loving family: son and daughter-in-law, Robert “Bob” & Lynn Madewell of Aledo, TX; son, Mark Madewell of Weatherford, TX; brother and sisterin-law, Kenneth & Linda Long of Peaster, TX, sisters: Margaret "Peggy" Skinner of Weatherford, TX; Delores "Dodie" Skrasek of Richland Hills, TX; half-sisters: Terry Lightfield, Kelsa Adams, Babette Holtman, and Annette Cassidy; grandchildren and spouses: Nathan & Anna Madewell; Melanie Madewell Garcia; Paul & Dove Madewell; Joseph “Joey” & Megan Madewell; 7 great-grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews and other extended family.
