Dora Ellen - a wonderful friend and special person
Years ago, there was a happy and kind soul who lived in the “yellow house on the corner.” Her name was Dora Ellen Smith and she had two sons, Shepard and Benton. She was a fixture in Holly Springs and around our home when I was younger. Fun does not quite describe her personality well enough - she was a larger than life person. She always had something witty to say and her deep laugh would carry for miles, or so it seemed.
Dora Ellen wound up moving down to Florida. During one of our summer vacations to Ft. Walton, we visited with her in her new home she made with her husband, Lee Anderson. Throughout the years, we would check in with her while we were at the beach.
She had such a presence about her, always making the worst of days seem OK. I will always remember Dora Ellen as a wonderful friend to all and a very special person.
