Ada Doris Law, age 93, of Bivins, TX, was promoted to heaven, May 22, 2023, at the Golden Villa nursing home in Atlanta, TX.

Ada, known by most as, “Dob,” was born April 19, 1930, in Atlanta, TX, to Charlie and Virtie Porterfield. She was known for her selfless and giving nature. She was a wonderful seamstress and knitting expert. Dob’s hobby came from her giving heart and busy hands. She stayed busy making baby blankets with fine hand stitching or crocheted edges which she selflessly donated to the Cullen Baker Country Store fundraiser each year. There are countless individuals who have wrapped up and kept warm in beautiful blankets and afghans made by Dob. She retired from Lone Star Army Ammunition plant.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Vernon O’Neal “Tommy” Law; siblings, Clyde, William, and Willard; and her parents.

She is survived by her sister, Betty Lou Smith Martin; a niece, Judy Humphrey of Hallsville, TX; a nephew, John Smith of Bloomburg, TX; and Kim Smith and Amy Ingram, both of Hughes Springs, TX and other relatives.

Graveside funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, May 24, 2023, at the Salem Cemetery with Brother George Thomas officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Salem Cemetery Association, P.O. Box 34 Bloomburg, Texas, 75556.
