Dorothy “Dot” T. Dey, 83, of Greenville, SC, formerly of New Jersey, peacefully passed away on Monday, July 10, 2023.
Born in Newark, NJ, she was the daughter of the late Lloyd Baldwin and Dorothy Catherine (O’Neill) Simcox.
Dot was a devout Catholic and longtime parishioner of Our Lady of the Mountain Catholic Church in Long Valley, New Jersey.
She graduated from Roxbury High School and received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the former Douglass University, now Rutgers in New Brunswick, NJ. She retired as a Project Manager at Morristown Memorial Hospital in New Jersey after more than 25 years of valued service and moved to Greenville in 2006 to be closer to family.
Dotty’s greatest joys were with those closest to her. Over the years, she enjoyed traveling with family and friends including trips to Hawaii, Alaska, France, Aruba and Bermuda. She also cherished time spent with her sisters and extended family, enjoying holidays, vacations and endless conversations with each of them.
More than anything, Dotty cherished moments with her sons and grandchildren. She enjoyed watching her sons play youth and high school soccer and baseball, in particular her son’s summer baseball teams, and later found an even greater joy in attending her grandchildren’s various sporting events and activities.
Dot leaves two sons and daughters-in-law, Christopher and Kimberly Dey and Matthew and Amy Dey; six adored grandchildren, Koa Dey, Charles Dey, Kingsley Dey, Colin Dey, Kendall Dey, and Catherine Dey; two sisters, Patricia Feeney and Kathleen Slaski and her husband Ervin; a nephew, Stephen Feeney and his wife Christine; a niece, Caryn Feeney; and a great-niece and two great-nephews, Allie, Matt, and Sam.
She was predeceased in 1962 by her twin brother, Lloyd “Sonny” Francis Simcox.
Her family will receive friends on Monday, July 17, 2023 from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Thomas McAfee Funeral Homes, Downtown. A private burial will be held in New Jersey at a later date.
