Obituaries » Dorothy Atkins Showers

Dorothy Atkins Showers, 91, of Markham, passed away peacefully at Edenhurst Farm, her beloved home of 75 years, on May 23, 2021, with her family by her side.

To know her was to love her, as Dorothy never met a stranger. She was always willing to open her home to family and friends. The world was a better place because of her.

Dorothy was born November 28, 1929, in Fauquier County, to the late Silas William Atkins and Rosie Cecil Frazier Atkins.

She was predeceased by her husbands, Giles Marshall Showers and James Delaney Brown; a son, Giles Marshall Showers Jr.; her brother Bennie Atkins, and her sisters, Marie Willingham and Mary Jane Atkins.

She is survived by two daughters, Carolyn Grimsley of Markham and Karen Goff of Hume; her brother, Bob Atkins of Front Royal; four grandchildren, Justin Grimsley, Devin Pilson, Alex Goff and Emily Goff, and two great grandchildren, Piper Pilson and Rhett Pilson.

Also, surviving are three stepchildren, Chip Brown, Candy Glascock and Clif Brown, and many other numerous family members and friends.

Dorothy was a member of Hume Baptist Church for more 60 years. She was a Sunday school teacher and active in the Woman’s Missionary Union and the Willing Workers Group.

The family will receive friends on Friday, May 28, from 1 p.m. until the service begins at 2 p.m. at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. Interment will follow at Leeds Cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Bengy Atkins, Ricky Atkins, Mike Atkins, Ben Atkins, Carl Willingham and Brad Updike.

The family asks that memorial contributions be made to Hume Baptist Church, P.O. Box 7, Hume, Va. 22639 or the Dementia Society of America, P.O. Box 600, Doylestown, Pa. 18901.
