Dorothy Baxter McAlister, 92, of Bethlehem, KY went to be with her Lord and Savior on April 2, 2022. She was preceded in death by: her husband of 60 years, Elzy Lee McAlister; parents Alma and Celester Baxter; brothers R.C. Baxter and William H. Baxter, sisters Mary Elizabeth Simpson and Lorene Downey; son-in-law Calvin Porter Roberts and daughter-in-law Shirley McAlister.

At an early age, Dorothy accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior and became a lifelong active member of the Bethlehem Baptist Church. She truly loved the way Christ loves; she lived a servant’s life and modeled a servant’s heart. Over the years she taught Sunday School, served as a “prayer warrior”, facilitated meals for the various children’s programs, provided flowers from her garden for church services and visits to the sick and homebound, prepared communion, & helped dress characters for the Living Nativity Scene. Her caring spirit and generous heart were felt by many.
Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 9, 2022 followed by a service at 2 p.m. at Sholar Funeral Home with a graveside service and interment in the Pleasureville Cemetery. Rev. Travis Sheehan will officiate the services. [In order to promote a safe gathering, masks are encouraged and will be available if needed.]
Pallbearers will be: Tommy Corley, Mike McAlister, Jason McAlister, Ryan Roberts, Brent McAlister, Chance Ashby, Tanner Ashby, Bryce McAlister, Brody McAlister and Braxton McAlister.
Expressions of Sympathy may be made to the Bethlehem Baptist Church, PO Box 56, Bethlehem KY 40007.
