Dorothy A. James was born on May 12, 1942, to Ruby Lee James in Russell County, Alabama.  She with her family  later came to Indianapolis, Indiana, where Dorothy would have a beautiful and fulfilling life.

Dorothy was a devoted Christian and firm believer of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She enjoyed attending services with family and friends. She belonged to A Caring Place, located at 2901 North Post Road in Indianapolis. She was a very outgoing person with a loving and nurturing spirit. She was very intelligent, knowledgeable in many subjects, and was a great listener as well as an adviser.

A product of the Indianapolis Public School System, Dorothy graduated from Crispus Attucks High School.  Shortly after, she began attending college and working for the City of Indianapolis, as well as Market Square Arena. It was her love for one of her many hobbies, drawing, which allowed her to work as a draftsman at The Department of Transportation.   She retired after thirty-six years of service.  .

Dorothy was granted her Heavenly Wings on February 17, 2020.  She was preceded in death by her mother, Ruby L. James, and brothers, Paul James, Robert James and Gabriel James.

Dorothy is survived by her sisters, Mary L. Harris (Herman) and Matalyn Gaines (Odis), a host of nieces and nephews, many cousins, other relatives, church family and friends.
