Dorothy Cowling Moody

Dorothy Cowling Moody, 91, went to be with our Lord on March 16, 2022. Born October 26, 1930, she was the daughter of the late Bernice Everett Cowling and Edna Earle Branch Cowling. She was predeceased by her husband Joseph Moody; daughter, Jean West Trehern and siblings Nell Cowling Rogers, Frances Cowling Lowe, B.E. Cowling, Jr., Edna Earle Schwichtenberg, and Albert Cowling.

Dorothy loved her Lord and her family.  She loved being a part of her Wakefield Baptist Church Family and the Smith Bible Class. She always enjoyed gardening, working in her flowers, and sitting on her back porch watching her hummingbirds.   

Left to cherish her memory is her daughter, Janice West Atkins (Ricky); grandchildren, Brandon Atkins (Meg), Payton Atkins (Kristen), Jessica Atkins Robertson (Kenny), Cyndi Wolanin-Talley (Mike), Amy Wolanin Stephens (David), Michael Wolanin (Karleen); fourteen great grandchildren; two great great grandchildren on the way; and sister-in-law, Anne Cowling. 

A funeral service will be held at 2 PM, Monday, March 21, 2022, in the R.W. Baker & Co. Funeral Home, Wakefield Chapel, with the Rev. Wayne Lowe, Jr. officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Burial will follow in the Mill Swamp Baptist Church Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Wakefield Baptist Church, Smith Bible Class, C/O Jackie O’Berry, 213 Brittles Mill Rd., Wakefield, VA 23888. Condolences may be registered at RWBakerFH.com.
