Dorothy moved to Atlanta, Ga in the of year 1971. For many years, upon arriving in Atlanta, she worked for the Hatfield Family. She later moved on to work for the Hirsch Family, where she then retired.

At an early age she surrendered herself to God in love by baptism at, Mt. Zion Baptist Church, under the ministry of Reverend N.K. McKinsey. As a member of the church, Dorothy discovered her role in life through her relationship with Christ. She began her mission on the usher board, in the choir, the Pastor’s Aid Committee, the Board of Trustees, with a final mission of serving on the mother board.

Dorothy Wims transitioned to her heavenly home on July 14th, 2019. Preceding her in death is one son, Alphonso Wynn; her father, Rev. Lindsey Wims, Sr.; five sisters and one brother, Sally D. Wims Plant, Marjorie Marshall, Willie Lee Wims Hadley, Betty J. Wynn Hudson, Marvis V. Wynn McGinty, and Lindsey Wynn, Jr.

Dorothy leaves to cherish her precious memories, one son, Melvin (Angela) Wynn; two daughters, Bloncelia Denise Wynn and Jennifer (Gregory)Wynn-McGinty; her grandchildren, Schawanna Wynn Rooks, Melvin Javar O’Kelley, Tony O’Kelley, Kelvin Wynn, Brian Wynn, Belita Jackson-Colbert, Niketa Wynn, Aundruneshia Sands, Erroll Gerrard Wynn, Rashard Wynn, and Ambria McGinty; one sister, Obbie “Yank” Johnson; three brothers, Ralph (Joanne) Wims, William (Marchita) Wynn, Ulysses (Laura) Wynn; and a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

There are so many memories and laughs we all have had with Aunt Dot. My last memory is Aunt Dot rode with me and the kids to Albany. We talked for a bit then her Alzheimer's kicked in . She kept looking at me like who are you. I was praying to myself please don't let her freak out on me We either have an accident or she send me to jail :) I kept saying Aunt Dot this is Trina. She nodded her head and then she sung every R&B, Country and Rap song that came on the radio. I was thinking to myself How in the world she know all these songs. We make it to Albany and pull up the Jackie's house. In Aunt Dot voice, "Well Trin Who house is this?" I just laughed and said come on you will see.
