Obituary for Dorcas I. Thomas

Dorcas Inez Thomas died peacefully, with her family by her side, September 13, 2016 at Mount Carmel East Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. She was 72 years old. Dorcas was born on August 15, 1944 in Detroit, Michigan to parents Carolyn and Berne Jones.

Dorcas graduated from Cass & Commerce High School in 1962. She was an avid sports fan who loved the Detroit Tigers, Lions, and especially the Pistons. Dorcas loved discussing politics, making lotion, travelling, going to the casino and making the best macaroni and cheese in town. Her greatest joy came from spending time with her family and she will be remembered most for her devotion to them. Dorcas was a beloved mother, grandmother, sister, auntie, and friend. She was deeply loved and will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

Dorcas is survived by her loving daughter Danielle (fiancé Bobby) Thomas and her cherished grandchildren Chris Boyd and Marcelle Butler. She is also survived by her dear siblings, Vera G. Jones, Barbara (Harold) Baylis, Jacqueline Rodgers, and John A. Jones and her aunts, Hiawatha Peavley, Pat Jones, and Lillian Clark. Dorcas is also survived by many beloved nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, Carolyn and Berne Jones and her siblings, Paula Grandberry, Berne Jones, Jr., and Charles Jones.
