GALLOWAY — Dorothy S.J. Tomlinson, most recently residing at 6421 Hunter St., Galloway, and who died April 5, 2004, was born Dorothy Mae Sebring in Springfield, Mass., on Sept. 2, 1917, and is a direct descendant of two of the Mayflower pilgrims.
She was active as a youth and played the drums in a Girl Scout Drum and Bugle Corp. She received the Golden Eaglet Award from the Girl Scouts, and the Warner Achievement Medal from Springfield Technical High School, graduating in 1935. After high school she attended the Fannie Farmer Cooking School in Boston and later worked as a secretary. She married Howard W. Case Jr. in November 1937, and after graduating RPI, Howard started on his engineering career in Connecticut. Howard unfortunately died in 1941, two weeks before their son Alan was born.
In 1943, she married Winthrop A. Jackson Jr., a decorated B-17 pilot during World War II. Win adopted Alan, and Win and Dorothy moved to Ohio and have four more children: twin girls, Holly and Bev, in 1944; a son, Michael, in 1948; and a son, Winthrop A. Jackson III, in 1950. Dorothy was remarried in 1972 to Charles E. Tomlinson and gained two stepsons, Ronald and Charles Jr.
Throughout her life, Dorothy was deeply religious and very active in the church. She served as church secretary at the Gentle Shepherd Church in Mount Vernon for 14 years, and was a pastor for the last four years, where she worked closely with the mentally impaired. She never stopped learning, obtaining her bachelor of arts degree at the age of 62 from Mount Vernon Bible College.
She always remained active in the arts through her drawings, water and oil paintings, and her writing. Among her writings, she published a book of poetry, “Of Laughter, Tears, and Warbler’s Song”; a delightful book of imaginary letters from her cat, “Dinah Letters — But I’ll Watch Out for the Whales”; and a story of Jesus’ time, “The Hem of His Garment.” She kept in touch with all the people in her life, as one family member observed, “She was the thread that connected family members and friends with her cards and letters.”
Alan Case now lives in Oceanside, Calif., Win Jackson III lives in Benbrook, Texas, and Holly King, Bev Smith and Mike Jackson, all live in the Columbus area. Besides her five children and two stepchildren, Dorothy leaves a sister, Shirley Woodward of Dallas; 15 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; five great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews and their descendants.
Funeral service will be Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Cherry Creek Church of Christ, 4977 Sullivant Ave., Columbus 43228-2222; (614) 878-7195. She will be interred in Francher Cemetery, Francher Road, Harlem Township.
