She lived for those who loved her.
That was the first line of Dorothy Jane Reed’s favorite poem and her guiding principle in life.
Mrs. Reed, 88, passed away after a long illness on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at home surrounded by her loving family.
Memorial services will be held 1:00 PM Sunday, February 18, 2018 at LaGrone Funeral Chapel at 900 S. Main, where grandson-in-law Gary DeWayne Jones will officiate.  Services will be followed by fellowship at Apostolic Bible Church, 2529 W. Alameda, Roswell, NM.
