Dorothy "Dot" Starnes Enos

Dorothy “Dot” Jean Starnes Enos went to be with her Lord on April 17, 2021 at the age of 86.  She was born on December 16, 1934 to Ollie Sisk and Willene Welch Russell in Wynne, Arkansas.

Most of her life she was homemaker. Later in life she opened a store in Batesville called Dreamland Décor and was a successful businesswoman. The store carried bedding, curtains, and home goods.  She expanded the business in several area towns and was in business for twenty years.

Her favorite memories were from her childhood when she lived with her grandmother “Mama” where she felt loved and secure.  She also spoke frequently about living in Jonesboro when she would take her three children on an adventure through the woods, naming the trees, plants, and “critters” along the way; while an entourage of dogs and “Mr. Goat” followed behind. She enjoyed any kind of “critter” and adopted every stray animal that would enter her yard.  She loved bling, bling hats, and making flower arrangements.

Dorothy is survived by Ron Enos; her dog, “Baby”; her three children, Mark Starnes and his wife, Janie, of Southside, Pam Trail, and her husband Danny, of Salado, Becky Insell and her husband, Steve, of Desha; seven grandchildren, Chris, Johnathan, Stacie, Elizabeth, Laura, Michael, Daniel; fifteen great grandchildren; three nephews; and her brother, John Russell and his wife, Peggy, of Wisconsin.

She is preceded in death by her first husband, Ray Starnes, her parents, and a brother, Mike Russell.

A Private Graveside Service will be on Sunday, April 25, 2021. Burial will be in the Egner Cemetery.
