Dorothy Fay Fontenot

January 12, 1935 - September 17, 2021

Dorothy Fay Biddle Fontenot, 86, of Silsbee, left this earth and entered her eternal home on Friday, September 17, 2021.  Dorothy was born in Saratoga, Texas on January 12, 1935, to Sarah Edith Cramer and Arthur Lee Biddle.

Dorothy loved the Lord and enjoyed sharing how good God had been to her with anyone who would listen.  She was a devoted mother, a loving grandmother and great-grandmother, and a powerful prayer warrior.  Her presence blessed our lives tremendously, and her absence will forever leave an enormous void.

Survivors include her daughter, Kathy Simpson; grandson, Heath Simpson; great-grandsons, Cole and Kade Simpson; special people, Wanda, Jerilyn, Brian, and Alicia; numerous nieces and nephews; and several special friends whom she loved dearly. She is preceded in death by her parents; infant son, Ricky James Fontenot; and brothers, Julius, Pat, and Jerry Biddle.

A gathering of Ms. Fontenot’s family and friends will be 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., Thursday, September 23, 2021, at Broussard’s, 490 Cemetery Road, Silsbee.  Her funeral service will be 10:00 a.m., Friday, September 24, 2021, at Broussard’s, with internment to follow at Resthaven Cemetery, Silsbee.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in her memory to the church or charity of your choice.
