She delivered babies, worked the ER, was published in wound care, did home health and hospice.  In her own words she “has gone from the miracle of birth to the miracle of the dying process.”

She is proceeded in death by her parents Paralee and Walter H. Davis Jr. and her husband of 59 years Charles L. Tuggle.  They raised their family in Forestdale.  She is survived by her children Charles Lee “Chuck” Tuggle Jr. (Karen), Joseph and Chase.  Cynthia Tuggle Thomas (Jim), Catherine Reed, Blake and Lore.  Cathy Tuggle Maple (Tony) Cory Davis, Molly and Jesilyn Maple. Brothers Jim (Lynda) Davis, Allen (Jill) Davis, sister Faye Christensen, nieces, nephews and beloved friends.

Dot was an artist, seamstress and master gardener.  She was a member of the Double Springs Study Club, President of the Homemakers Association and was “Mrs. Claus” for the ARC of Walker County.

The family would like to thank Kirkwood by the River for their exceptional, loving, compassionate care.

Dot Tuggle definitely did.
