Dorothy VanDyke Barnett, 99, Taylor Co., KY native (1920-2019)

Dorothy VanDyke Barnett of Alvaton, formerly of Campbellsville, daughter of the late Chester VanDyke and Lottie Cox VanDyke, was born May 9, 1920 in Taylor County, Kentucky. She died at 9:10 P.M., Sunday, October 6, 2019 in Bowling Green.
She professed faith in Christ and was a member of St. Mark United Methodist Church, which she loved dearly and always enjoyed the visits by some of the members.
She was a retired telephone operator with General Telephone Company for forty years.
Dorothy was a proud lady who always liked to look her best but wasn't afraid to don a pair of coveralls and set tobacco and do farm chores. She was an immaculate housekeeper and a great cook. She was known to be a spicy and resourceful lady as best told in a story about using her skills as a telephone operator to call the Commanding Officer on her son, Bob's, ship when he was in the Mediterranean, resulting in the officer ordering Bob to "call his mother."
Dorothy united in marriage to Edmundston "Clem" Hill and he preceded her in death in 1941.
She later united in marriage to Leslie Barnett and he preceded her in death February 18, 2001.
She is survived by one son and daughter-in-law: Robert "Bob" and Nancy Hill of Alvaton; two granddaughters: Nancy Annette Hill of Bowling Green and Cynthia Lynette Swafford of Campbellsville; three great-grandchildren: Ryan Swafford, Emily Swafford and Elizabeth Swafford; several nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends.
Dorothy was also preceded in death by a grandson, Anthony C. Hill and one brother and two sisters: Chester Gordon VanDyke, Ruth VanDyke and Louise White.
Expressions of sympathy requested to be donations to St. Mark United Methodist Church and may be made at Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home.
Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. Online condolences at parrottramsey.com.
