Dorothy (Dottie) Gregory Lassiter, age 69, went to be with her Lord and Savior on June 6, 2019. She left this Earth in peace and comfort under the loving and compassionate care of the Vanderbilt Hospital Palliative Care Staff. Her sons, Chris and Brian Lassiter, were there with her until her last breath, loving and comforting her just as she did for them her entire life. Dottie was born in Detroit, Michigan and soon after was adopted by loving parents Garland and Betty Gregory of Nashville, TN. She spent her entire life in Nashville and the northern suburbs. She loved her Lord and loved her church. She was a founding member of Long Hollow Baptist Church. She loved to ball room dance and created many great relationships in the process.

    Chris, Brian and family. I’m so sorry for your loss. Both your parents were greatly appreciated in Goodlettsville as friends and business leaders. I remember the great times I spent at the Barber shop when the both were doing hair. Your mother was always sweet and kind. So sorry for your loss!
