Beaufort says goodbye to Dottie McDaniel

09 Jan Beaufort says goodbye to Dottie McDaniel

Dottie McDaniel fit no-one else’s mold. She was a special character who spoke her mind and it was a joy to see her do “her thing” in our special hometown which celebrates individuality, creativity, love of life and personal charm.  Whether it was brief encounters on the street corner, or at a party lasting many hours in her home or at City Council meetings where Dottie spoke passionately about her beliefs, she was colorful and informed.

We will miss Dottie. Fortunately so many of us had such pleasant and entertaining experiences with Dottie that her spirit will last a long time in the hearts and minds of Beaufortonians.
