April 15, 1944 – July 6, 2013
Dorothy Jayne Galloway, 69, of Owens Crossroads, AL, died Saturday morning. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Jayne had touched throughout her memorable life.
She was born to the late Clifton Odell and Mattybelle Mann, April 15, 1944 in Huntsville, AL. Jayne graduated from New Hope High School in 1962. She was married to the late Billy Charles Galloway in 1961, and they lived together in Owens Crossroads, AL until his death in 2012.
Jayne was passionate about her family and believed in living life to its fullest. Known as Lulu to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, she gave each person she encountered the dignity of her undivided attention and respect. She lived her life by the golden rule of “compassion for all” and worked everyday of her life to uphold it. Through the tenure of her life, every person she met was deeply blessed to have known her. Her smile alone could light up a room and her hugs were filled with love and conviction.
Jayne was an active member of Owens Crossroads Church of Christ. She loved to travel, and took many trips with her husband, children, and grandchildren in her lifetime.
