Dorothy was born in Huntsville, Texas to the late Sincere and Annie Lee Crawford. After attending Sam Houston High School here in Huntsville, Dorothy moved to Galveston, Texas where she met and married Allen Ward Langston. They later moved to Washington, DC. Allen preceded Dorothy in death.
Dorothy moved back to Huntsville after retiring as a licensed beautician. She was a dedicated servant of the Lord and placed her membership with Greater Zion Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Rev. Michael Davis. She served in many capacities of the church until her health began to fail. She then returned to Washington, DC and reunited with St. Mark Baptist Church.
On May 8, 2017 Dorothy answered the call of death and went to be with the Lord. Left to cherish her memories are two sisters; Ethel E. Wilson of Huntsville, Texas and a loyal and devoted Gloria Jean Strong of Washington, DC, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends from Huntsville who were so caring.
