Obituary of Cassandra LaVeeda Dorsey

Cassandra was born  in Ameagle, West  Virginia on June  15,  1949.  She was the  4th out  of 5 children to the  late Joe  David  & Mary  Alice  Lambert.


She was preceded in death by her  late husband Wayman Dorsey,  2 brothers Rodney Lambert (Brenda)  & Joe  Frazel  Lambert and  1  sister  LaVerne Williams.  Cassandra moved  to Cleveland,  Ohio  in 1971 where she started  a new  life  with her  2-year-old  son David  Saunders.  She  entered into marriage with Wayman  Dorsey on September 1, 1983.  Out  of this union,  her daughter,  Lynette, was born.


Cassandra was affectionately known  by family  and friends  as "Veeda." Her strong faith in God  allowed  her to persevere through trials  and tribulations. She attended and was a member of Unity  Tabernacle Church of God  for 30 years.  She worked for the U.S.  Coast  Guard at the  Federal Building as the department supervisor for the  data entry operators. After leaving  the US Coast  Guard,  she went  on to pursue  a degree  in Medical Assisting through Remington College.  She loved  her job  and  enjoyed  working with patients and the  community.  She retired as the  office manager for Dr.  Richard King

Internal Medicine and  Geriatrics.

The  battle with her health issues eventually led to her moving  to Arizona to live with her children.  Cassandra was an avid reader,  loved traveling, taking photos,  and  making  quilts  for her grandchildren,  as well as spending time with her family!


Cassandra will be lovingly  remembered by her   last surviving  sibling,  Vicki Weston,  son, David  Saunders  (Kim),  daughter Lynette Dorsey (Malcom)  7 grandchildren: Angelina, Alisha,  Aleyah,  Taylor,  D.J.,  Bryce  and Mason. 5 great  grandchildren: Ava  K., Ava W.,  Kaden, Ayla  and  Elijah  and  a host  of nieces  and nephews,  cousins,  and  friends.
