Dorothea Louise Tingle, 88, widow of Marion Keith Tingle, passed away January 2, 2018 in Lexington. Born on December 20, 1929 in Madison County, KY to Herman and Edith Kantzer Stocker. Dorothea was a member of Georgetown Baptist Church, and also a member of Big Springs Chapter D.A.R. She enjoyed gardening and ceramics.

her husband Marion. They devoted their life to their shop.
