Obituary

Le Dorough passed away at her residence on March 29, 2019. Le was born in Wilcox County on November 24, 1932. She was the only child of Preston and Averill (Holloway) Coleman. The family lived in Rochelle and Le graduated from Rochelle High School in 1949. She attended Georgia Baptist Hospital School of Nursing in Atlanta from 1950 until her graduation in March 1953.

Le married Kermit Dorough on January 1, 1956. The couple had two daughters, Karen and Kathy, and two sons, Bo and Joe. Joe was born on Le’s thirtieth birthday, and she always referred to him as the best birthday present she ever received.

Le was employed as a registered nurse at Athens General, when the family resided in Athens, at Phoebe Putney, when the family resided in Albany and Dawson, and at Crisp County Hospital, after the family moved to Cordele, Kermit’s hometown, in 1965. Le taught Health Careers at Crisp County High School from 1971 until 1985, and then taught biology for five years before retiring. She received a B.S. in Education and a Master of Education while teaching at Crisp County High School, and was selected as Teacher of the Year in 1980.

Le was an active member of Penia Baptist Church and, for several years, was a member and officer in the local chapter of Business and Professional Women.

Le and Kermit traveled extensively following her retirement. She was a devoted caregiver for her mother, who passed away in 2006.

There will be a visitation at Hughes & Wright Funeral Home in Cordele on April 5, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and the funeral service will be held at Penia Baptist Church on April 6, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. Interment will follow at Sunnyside Cemetery.

Le was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband, her children, Dr. Karen Dorough (Michael Cygan), of Valpariso, Ind., Kathy Galimore (Don), of Montrose, Ga., Kermit S. Dorough, Jr. (Bonny), of Albany, Ga., and Joseph Lawton Dorough (Emily), of Jefferson, Ga., ten grandchildren, and a special first cousin, Jerry Coleman, who she considered a brother.

Dear family,
Please accept my condolences regarding the passing of your loved one. The pain that results from the death of a loved one can be intense and unbearable. However, I want you to know that our Heavenly Father, Jehovah, understands your sorrow and that I certainly have heartfelt empathy for you and yours. Right now, I know your spirits are low because of this difficult time. However, take heart! In God’s Word, the Bible (Acts 24:15), He assures us that ALL of our loved ones, who are now sleeping in death, will be resurrected in the future. God’s Word NEVER FAILS! This is wonderful NEWS…news of which I hope will lessen some of the grief that you are feeling right now.
