October 12, 1924 - December 21, 2021
Dorothy Lee Harvey was born on October 12, 1924, in Rogers (Bell County), Texas. She went home to be with the Lord on December 21, 2021. Dorothy served our country in the United States Army during World War II. After her discharge, she took flying lessons. She may be the only student pilot to be congratulated for crashing her aircraft to avoid a collision with a commercial airliner. Although she only married into the Harvey family, she could play 42 as well as any Harvey. She enjoyed making jelly for her loved ones. After grandchildren arrived, she was active in their lives and never missed one of their events, big or small. Dorothy loved the Big Bend Area of Texas, taking many family vacations there including a raft trip through Santa Elena Canyon when she was 83. She enjoyed Mexican food but to her dying day would swear that fish tacos are not tacos and flour tortillas are not tortillas. After being introduced to a drink called a Margarita in Los Mochis, Mexico in 1969, she remained always up for visiting a bar to have a Margarita, even at the age of 96. She was preceded in death by her husband, Caswell “Boots” Harvey and her daughter, Susan Barber. She is survived by her son, David Harvey of Plano; daughter, Laura Schroder and Tod Schroder of Arlington; and son-in-law, Ken Barber of Canyon Lake, Texas. Grandchildren, Patrick Barber, Michael Barber, Jennifer Dennis, Austin Flippin, Alyson Galloway, Christian Harvey, Zachary Harvey, Alex Schroder, and Hillary Cotten; great-grandchildren, Tia Dennis, Tommy Dennis, Daxlee Galloway, Heaton Galloway, Kynsler Galloway, Reese Flippin and Jonah Cotten.
