Dorothy K. (Powell) Hasty-Bishir, 93, died Tuesday, March 10, 2020, at her Fairmount residence. She was born on February 19, 1927, in Florida, daughter of the late Avery and Martha (Disbenett) Powell. Dorothy graduated from Fairmount High School in 1945. She worked at General Motors for 22 years as a press operator for many of those years, and then she became a benefits representative before retiring in 1993. Dorothy married the love of her life James "Mike" M. Bishir, on March 13, 2004. One of Dorothy's proudest childhood memories was when she was between the ages of 9-13, she was asked by a friend to attend a church service at Back Creek Wesleyan Church in Fairmount. During that service, she felt God's presence and was saved on that special day. Dorothy was a person that gave all of herself to those that she loved, especially her children. She enjoyed shopping, gardening, mushroom hunting, baking, and cooking. She was thankful that her mother had taught her the secret on how to cook the most tasteful meats. Dorothy was a good-hearted, loving woman who will be deeply missed.
Dorothy is survived by her husband, James "Mike" M. Bishir, Fairmount; three sons, Thomas G. Hasty, Fairmount; Avery Hasty, Gas City; and Danny Hasty, Fairmount; her sister, Sarah (Don) Spahr, Fairmount; several grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Avery and Martha (Disbenett) Powell; her daughter, Sarah Lynn Hasty-Horn; and siblings, Gwenevere Miller and Henry Fred "HF" Powell.
