Dorothy “Pitt” Shelton

On November 28th, 1955, God blessed Roosevelt Pittman and Ethel Lee Baker with a baby girl whom they named Dorothy JoAnn Pittman.

Dorothy, a woman of vibrant spirit and casual banter, igniting the room like a firecracker. She had a talent for conveying her emotions through language. With a heart of gold, she extended her hand to all in need.

A faithful patron of Brookshire's, Dorothy's weekly grocery runs were more than just errands-they were opportunities to share and spread her generous spirit. She didn't just shop for herself; she shared her abundance with her family and friends.

Though Dorothy may no longer walk among us, her legacy of generosity lives on in the hearts of all fortunate enough to know her. Her unwavering presence continues to illuminate our lives, a testament to the assertiveness that she exhibited.

She was a 1973 graduate of Strong High School. After high school, she became employed with Conagra and Best Western. She was highly motivated and always on the lookout for new job prospects.

Dorothy transitioned on Tuesday, May 7th, 2024, in Strong, AR. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ronald Joe Shelton, and a sister, Diana Pittman.

She leaves her cherished memories to her children, Rhonda (Charles) Perry of Strong, AR, Vannetta Shelton of Dallas, TX; five grandchildren, Charvez Perry of Strong, AR, Keyuana (Marque) Burris of Dallas, TX, Charria Perry of Strong, AR, Zaria and Kaliyah Cleveland both of Dallas, TX; two great-grandchildren, Kyler Burris of Dallas, TX and Kingston Brown of Dallas, TX. Her mother, Ethel Baker-Kemps of Strong, AR; one sister, Marsha Smith of Strong, AR; one niece, Kaytrena Chambers of Strong, AR; one nephew, Kenya (Kendra) Smith of El Dorado, AR; two special cousins/ brothers, Willie Vell (Alice) Abson of Mabelvale, AR and Herbert (Essie) Baker of Spearsville, LA; one special son, Cedric Louden; two special cousins/friends Faye (Billie ) Lovett of Strong, AR, and Louise Baker of Strong, AR, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
