Judith Anne Dorsett was born August 26, 1940 in Houston, Texas and passed away January 8, 2019 in Bryan, Texas. Her parents were Robert and Maurine (Cullum) Chapman.

She had also taught, for a short period of time, for the state prison system in the Beto Unit. Judith loved and cherished her many years as an educator.
In 1983, she and her late husband purchased land in Leon County.

She was a member of Stewart Memorial United Methodist Church in Buffalo and was also a proud member of the Leon County Retired Teachers Association. Judith loved to read and entertain, and she enjoyed hosting parties and gatherings. She was also a staunch Republican and very knowledgeable of events going on in the world.

She is survived by daughter, Tana Delisse McDaniel of Oakwood; grandchildren, Jackson Keith McDaniel & Emerson Anne McDaniel, both of Oakwood and nieces, Susan Maurine Poole of Charlotte, NC and Valarie Lucille Manis of Houston.
