 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;


Sunday, July 21 dawned hot and a bit humid in Bastrop, LA as many residents of the small community of Bastrop, LA prepared for Sunday service. But, for John Henry and Beatrice Geames Dorsey, this third Sunday in July was about to give to them another beautiful girl child. And so, Willie Marie Dorsey made her advent into the world. On Tuesday, June 1 after recovering from a brief illness, Willie Marie Dorsey, (lovingly called "Granny")joined her parents and other family members and friends in a place where we must all go.

Willie was a gracious lady who enjoyed sharing her special gift, that of  a storyteller, with family and friends. Her tales would actually come to life as she could mesmerize young and old alike with her special gift.

Willie’s memories live on and will be  cherished by  her daughter Felicia Ann and her two (2) grandsons Jonathan Riley, Jr. and  Christopher Grisby; four (4) sisters: Johnnie Dorsey Moses of Bastrop, Louisiana; Selitha Dorsey Birdon (Charles) of Katy, Texas;  Beatrice Faye Geames of Houston, Texas;  Irene Genes of Richmond, California and five (5) brothers:  Bob Earl Dorsey of Delhi, Louisiana; Harold Lee  Dorsey, Ernest Lee Dorsey, Sebastian Will Dorsey (Latricia), and Dale Geames of Houston, Texas; one brother in law John Plumber of Houston, Texas; a very special friend for over 30 years, Thomas J. Tibbs of  Monroe, Louisiana (whom Willie referred to and introduced as “Tibbs”); one adopted sister Diann Beckwith, and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, relatives, and many friends.
