She was the daughter of Huey and Verla Hensley. Dot started her career at Western Electric when she was 22 yrs. old and retired 42 years later.
She was formerly married to the late Stevie E. Wells.
Dot’s greatest pleasure in life was her family, working in her yard, her flowers, her fur babies and life’s simple pleasures.

Dot is survived by her daughter Kathy W. York (Buddy), her brother Larry A. Barnes, her very special niece Sherry Lynn Puckett, her nephews Melvin (Todd) Puckett (Wendy) and Robert C. Munn, great nieces Macie and Lillian (Lilly) Munn, and great-great niece Legend, her loyal chihuahua Tina who was her constant companion and guard dog, her Shi- Tzu Benji, and fur grand dogs, Bulatti and Coco Chanel.
