Dorothy Adair

Dorothy Adair, 76, passed away June 27, 2011 at Tuscany Village in Pearland, TX in the company of her hospice care team and her daughter.  Dorothy was born January 24, 1935 in Oklahoma and adopted at age 4.  She eventually came to Texas where she has lived since the mid 1960’s.  She is formerly from Texas City and Deer Park.  Dorothy was a homemaker, mother and grandmother.  She loved spending time with her grandchildren and spoiling them.  She spent a lot of time with 3 of her granddaughters Shannen McNeil, Kaitlyn Pettis and Ashlan Pettis.  She took any opportunity to show off her grandkids and tell anyone who would listen about them. 


Dorothy married Belton Adair August 4, 1973.  They shared many vacations, birthdays, anniversaries and other events until Belton’s passing.  She loved to travel, see new things, eat out and of course, shop.
