Ms. Dorthene Allison-Clark (Dot), daughter of the late Ernest Glenn Allison, Sr. and the late Annie Baitey Allison, was born in Statesville, NC on November 2, 1938. She transitioned to her new address, Heaven, on March 27, 2021 at Davis Regional Medical Center following an extended illness.
She is a graduate of Unity High School in Statesville, NC where she was known as a student leader; she served as the Student Body President her senior year. She was a member of the Family Church, South Iredell A.M.E. Zion Church in Troutman, NC, and her pastor was Reverend Bobbi Samuels.
She was preceded in death by her two brothers, Charles Edward and Ernest Glenn Allison, Jr, and her husband, Charles Clark.
She gained a second family, the ElderCare Center staff members, because they provided remarkable loving and engaging care for her Monday through Friday while her daughter worked full time.
