Judith Dorman Obituary

Judith Chaney Dorman, age 85, born February 16, 1938, left this earthly life to live in her heavenly home on October 29, 2023. She currently resided at the Langston Square in Clinton, SC, before that she had lived in Fort Mill, SC. She was born in Clinton, SC, predeceased by her parents Mary Virginia Thomas and Pressley Ernest Chaney. She was a graduate of Clinton High School in 1955, and she attended Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC.

Her memory will be cherished by her daughter Valerie Faith Colegrove, and husband Gregory Colegrove of Hendersonville, NC and her son David B. McNinch, and Daughter in Law, Gisela Paulsen of Burlingame, California and her precious Granddaughter Caroline McNinch who is a freshman at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. She will be missed by her friend Mary Jo Holsonback, also of Langston, and her long-time friend Patricia Lineberger, Anne Sullivan, and Karen Olson. “Sisters” in her writing group, will also cherish her memory.

Judi was a beloved mother, grandmother, church member and friend. She loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ first of all. Not only were her family important to her but also her church family and friends were very important. She learned early on as an only child that outside friends were called, “framily” to her.

In December, 2008, she retired from S&ME, Inc. in Charlotte, NC. During her 50-year career as an office professional, her employers included Clemson University, Extension Service, Laurens, SC; First Baptist Church, Rock Hill, SC, Homeowners Marketing, Fort Mill, SC and Motor Racing Outreach Concord, NC, the ministry to the racing community.

As a member of Fort Mill Church of God, she served as office Volunteer and greeter as well as leader for the Shepherd Group, “Fellowshipping Together.” Her community service included working as a receptionist for the American Red Cross, and she was a former member of Central Church of God, Charlotte, NC.

She considered herself a “Beach Bum” at heart even though she had only lived near the ocean in Little River, SC, for only a short time. A memorial service will be held to celebrate her life at Fort Mill Church of God Chapel on Academy Street in Fort Mill, SC on April 13, 2024 at 11:00 AM. Per her request, the family would like to invite anyone who had a relationship with her to speak of their relationship at the Memorial Service.
