She was the cherished sister of Fred Wilson.  She is preceded in death by siblings; Lloyd Wilson, Bettie Lou Napolitano, Floyd "Sonny" Wilson, Dannie Wilson, and Dexter Wilson.

Dottye was a long-time resident of the Milestone I.D.D. Residential Program in North Versailles. There, she made a home for herself and formed many close relationships with both the staff and her fellow residents.  She was especially close to her roommates, Karen Elm and Karen Soflak.

Her love for these timeless tunes was infectious, and she often shared her favorite songs with those around her. Despite the challenges she faced, Dottye always maintained a bright outlook on life. Her resilience and positivity were an inspiration to all who knew her.
