In loving Memory 

Dorothy Agneta Patterson, Miss Dotti, finished her journey on earth on December 19, 2018 at the age of 75 from complications of multiple myeloma.


Dotti was a talented dancer and an even more talented teacher of dance, starting her career in New Albany, MS. After several years she opened her own studio, teaching tap, jazz and ballet at Dottiā€™s School of Dance in Germantown and Collierville. She finally retired after 51 years. Dotti was a member of Southern Association of Dance masters, Central Church Ambassador class and a loyal Tigers fan.


Dotti was an active member of SADM, serving as board members, officer and most recently 2nd Vice President.


Her spirit will live on with each student and teacher who attends SADM.
