Dorthene Brantley was brought into this life on October 14, 1934 and gifted her to great parents, Mother, Anna Doris Glaspie, and Father, Clinton Glaspie. She was the 2nd oldest of 4 girls, and one brother who preceded her in death as an infant as did her parents, and her first born child, Anna Brantley in infancy. A native of Carthage, Texas, Dorthene moved to Tyler, Texas, then, to Houston in 1941.
Dorthene’s 85+ years on this earth were filled with the heart of a servant. She was baptized, and born again at Damascus Baptist Church in 6th ward. She joined Little Union Baptist Church in Settegast. Her work life consisted of being a United States Postal Worker from which she retired after 19 years. She attended Harper Elementary School and was a graduate of Wheatley High School.
Among the many ways she contributed to the Kingdom of God was through Galilee Missionary Baptist Church where she was a member for 63 years. She served on the Pastor’s Aide, sung in the mass choir for 48 years, and in the Woman’s Chorus, on the Bereavement Committee, kitchen service, mission, and performed in the Special group.
