Dorothy Lee Sessom

Dorothy Lee Sessom, age 84 returned peacefully to our Heavenly Father on October 1, 2021. She survived by her 6 children- Cathy, Larry, Deavin, Stacy, Richard and Johnny, along with many Grandchildren and even more Great Grandchildren that she loved very much. Preceded in death by daughter- Jackie Sessom, all her sisters (2), brother (1) and her beloved husband of 58 wonderful years Bob Sessom.

Dorothy was born October 13, 1936 in Bell, California. She attended Bell Gardens High school, where she graduated. She grew up with her siblings- Alice, Gene and Bobby. Dorothy was the youngest out of the 4.

Dorothy and husband Bob Sessom moved from Paramount, California to Tooele, Utah in 2004 after they both retired. Not long after moving to Utah, they bought a very special companion (dog) Magic.

Dorothy was a devoted Christian and found her forever home at New Life Christian Fellowship Church, where she  immediately fell in love with Pastor Mark Runyon and the entire congregation at New Life. There was never a day she didn’t mention her Pastor or someone of the church.

Dorothy was the glue to her family and although we will miss her dearly, we are at peace knowing she was met at the gates of Heaven by our Heavenly Father, daughter, many others that were called to heaven before her and her loving husband Bob. Our beloved Mother, Grandmother and friend is now at peace.

A Service will be held at New Life Christian Fellowship Church in Tooele, Utah- October 15th (Friday) at 6:00 PM. All are welcomed to join. Arrangements in care of Dalton-Hoopes Funeral Home & Cremation Center. 435-884-3031
