Heflin - Dorothy Oden Eason, 88, died Wednesday, September 4, 2019 at Regional Medical Center surrounded by her loving family.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, September 7, 2019, at Dryden Funeral Home Chapel with Ryan Robertson officiating. Burial will follow in Hepsabah Cemetery. Visitation will be Saturday, September 7, 2019 from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM. Dryden Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
She is survived by her son, James(Patricia), sister Estelle(John) Kaylor and grandchildren, Robert Holt, Derrick Eason, Rodney Holt, Shaun(Gil) Howard, Juellynn(Trey) Jones, and Greg(Brandi) Schulz. She had 12 great grandchildren and 8 great - great and one on the way, and also her beloved dog, Bandit.
Pallbearers will be: Robert Holt, Derrick Eason, Rodney Holt, Greg Schulz, Trey Jones, Josh Penland, and Michael Farrell.
The first thing anyone says about Dorothy was that she loved everybody and everybody loved her. Rarely could you go anywhere where she didn't know somebody. Her Son used to say he could have taken her to India and when she got off the plane, she would know someone! Dorothy loved her family - her infectious sweet smile and sparkly blue eyes brought a lot of happiness to whoever knew her. She loved her flowers and prided herself on having a beautiful yard. We always said she could root a broomstick and had ten green thumbs. Dorothy lived a hard life but never complained, she worked hard and anyone was welcome at her home. We all find peace now knowing that she has joined J. L. and her parents in heaven, and probably hugging everyone. We will miss her forever.
Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, James Eason "J.L.", her brother, Howard Oden, her parents, Ciecro and Gertrude Sprayberry, and grandson, Griffin Holt.

She didn’t have the most glamorous or glorious life and I know Paw gave her fits at times (in his own loving way) and most people would say that she deserved more, but the life she had is what made her happy and all she needed. You could just see that in her eyes and feel it in her hugs every single time you saw her and that is all that matters. Her family was the center of everything she did and that was the perfect life for her. She did everything she could to make sure everyone else was taken care of no matter what she sacrificed to do it and she put their wants and needs before her own and was happy to do that. She has no idea how much she ever taught me just from watching the way she was with others. She loved you no matter what and brought laughter into every conversation. Her smile shined so brightly in her blue eyes and I will never forget the love she always showed me.
