Saturday afternoon, the family will receive guests, from 1 to 3 P.M., at the home of Troy and Jennifer Burke, 8805 Salem Ave, Lubbock.

Dorothy (Dot) was born February 24, 1932 in Bruceville, Texas, to the late W.D. and Gladys Turner, of Lubbock. She graduated from Lubbock High School in 1949, attended Texas Tech before graduating from the University Of Texas School Of Nursing in Galveston. She married the late E. Bruce Bagwell on December 21, 1953, and they lived together in Lubbock until his death.

Dot was a Registered Nurse and served as office nurse, for at least 10 years, for Dr. R. C. Douglas and in a variety of settings and hospitals in Lubbock, Madisonville, El Paso and Austin, TX, Little Rock, AR, Fayetteville, NC, Charleston, SC and Albuquerque, NM. She completed her nursing career specializing in pediatric intensive care nursing. In addition to nursing, Dot also did advanced studies in cultural anthropology at Texas Tech. She did field research in Mezzo-American culture in the Yucatan and Polynesian culture in the South Pacific. Dot was a long time member of First Baptist Church of Lubbock. She was an avid reader, loved music, art, and taking her grandchildren on cruises.

Dot was preceded in death by her husband, Bruce, and her son, Barton J. (Sandy) Bagwell. She is survived by three children: The Reverend Dr. Tom Knowles-Bagwell and wife Elizabeth of Nashville, TN, Jane A. Powell and husband Gordon of Austin, and Sally L. Walker and husband Robert of Arlington, TX. She is also survived by three grandchildren: Amanda N. Powell of Austin, John T. Knowles-Bagwell of St. Louis, MO, and Anna E.
