Obituary of Dorothy Harmon
Dorothy Madieria King Harmon, Dot to her friends, is traveling the heavens with her husband, Brosig Harmon, after passing away Saturday, May 25th. Dot was born November 15, 1926 in Westminster, SC. She attended Walhalla High School and continued her education at Georgia Baptist Hospital School of Nursing. She began her 38 years nursing career in Columbia. It was there she met her husband Brosig, better known as Buzz, and they were married in 1949. They enjoyed 57 years of marriage. They were members of Saint Timothey’s Episcopal Church since their marriage. She retired from C.M. Tucker Center in 1986 after 25 years as the Nurse Supervisor.
She is survived by two daughters, Penny Harmon DuBois (Elgin, S.C) and Marsha Harmon (Franklin, N.C.); two grandsons, and four great grandchildren.
Dot shared many good times at the bride table with her longtime friends and neighbors. On weekends she was known to explore yard sales and estate auctions collecting antiques. In her travels with Buzz on their rock hounding trips across the US, she continued adding to her antique collection. She was the last surviving charter member of the Columbia Gem and Mineral Society.
