Dorothy C. Haufler (Dot) of Hudgins, went to be with her heavenly father on June 19, 2012.

Born on June 21, 1931 in Pelham N.C., she was the daughter of tobacco farmers Clarence and Edna Crumpton.

She is survived Edwin R. Haufler, her beloved husband of 51 years; four children, Beth Haufler of Richmond, Va. and her friend Kelley Richardson, Bob Haufler and his wife Maggie of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Tim Haufler and his wife Alicia of Williamsburg, Va., and Julie Raub of Sparta, Wis. and her husband Allen; 14 grandchildren, Robert, Zoe, Mallory, Carrie-Anne, Nicholas, Georgia-Hope, Nathan, Josiah, Caleb, Anna, Asher, Brandon, Brittany and Brent; two brothers and a sister. She was preceded in death by grandson Evan-Moses and two brothers.

Dot’s greatest passions were her family; her husband, children and grandchildren, or any child who warmed to her loving personality. Secondary to that, was her desire to help others and this was exemplified through her service as a member of Mathews Baptist Church, 13 years of service as a state fair ambassador and service on the Mathews Rescue Squad Auxiliary.

Both she and Ed had a love for square dancing and belonged to Chamberlayne Squares Club while living in Richmond and belonged to the Stepping Stones of Syringa while in Mathews.

She retired from VCU School of Business as a secretary to the dean, following years of service in the Henrico County School System.

The family would like to express their sincere thanks to the Riverside Walter Reed Hospital and Cancer Center for their staff’s extraordinary and tender care for Dot and her family during her illness.

A visitation for Dot will be at Foster-Faulkner Funeral Home on Thursday, June 21, 2012 from 7-8:30 p.m. Funeral services will be held at Mathews Baptist Church in Hudgins on Friday, June 22, 2012 at 10 a.m. Burial will follow in H.C. Smithers Cemetery.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Foster-Faulkner Funeral Home in Mathews.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mathews Volunteer Rescue Squad.
