Dora Mae Markwood Clodfelter

January 22, 1945 — April 13, 2023

Asheboro

 

Mrs. Dora Mae Markwood Clodfelter, age 78, of Asheboro passed away on Thursday, April 13, 2023 at the Randolph Hospice House.

Dora Mae Clodfelter was born on January 22nd, 1945, to W.D. and Ella Mae Markwood. She was the eldest of 4 children. Dora Mae was a born leader and helped bring out the best in those around her. She started working at The Big Deal shoe store at a young age and eventually took over part of the business which she continued to run until her retirement. She was married to Larry Clodfelter for almost 50 years before his passing a couple of years ago. She remained very much in love with him and missed him every day. If you knew Dora Mae, then you knew her best friend Sylvia Welborn as they have been the best of friends for over 60 years. They have always been very supportive of each other and never short on laughter. Dora Mae helped raise all her nieces and nephews as if they were her own. Just like her siblings, she had a love for family. This was handed down from her parents and helped hold us all together. She was a strong, independent woman with a heart of gold. Dora Mae will be missed but she will be celebrated because she will remain within us through the memories of her and the great impact she had on all our lives.

Along with her husband Larry Clodfelter she is preceded in death by her brother Harry Markwood and sister and brother-in-law Debbie & Paul Bunting.  

She is survived by her brother, William "Buddy" Markwood (Jane) of Asheboro; sister-in-law, Patsy Markwood of Asheboro; best friend, Sylvia Welborn of Asheboro; nephew, Dexter Markwood of Asheboro; niece, Scarlett Berg of Greensboro; nephew, Rodney Miller of Asheboro; nieces, Tabitha Ownsbey of Asheboro, Lori Haithcox of Pine Bluff, and Lisa Newton of Asheboro; and several great nieces and nephews. 

The family will receive friends on Sunday, April 16, 2023 from 1:00-2:45 pm at Pugh Funeral Home, 437 Sunset Avenue in Asheboro. Funeral services will follow on Sunday at 3:00 pm at the Pugh Funeral Home Chapel with Chaplain Pat Thames and Rev. David Millikan officiating. Burial will be held at Oaklawn Cemetery.
