Dorothy Louise Slaten, 80, of Texarkana, Arkansas, passed away on November 17, 2023.
She was born on July 27, 1943, in Hope, Arkansas, to Robert and Nellie Pearl Wilson.
Dorothy was a member of Calvary Tabernacle in Queen City, Texas. She enjoyed spending her time working in her yard and planting flowers in her younger years.
