Dorothy Stone Argoe went to be with Jesus on Sunday, September 4, 2022, at her residence in Gate City, Virginia.
Dorothy was the youngest child of Rev. Guy E. and Ida Pearl (Taylor) Stone and was born in Big Stone Gap, Virginia on March 14, 1934.
Dorothy received her education at Thomas Walker High School in Ewing, Virginia where she graduated as the valedictorian of her class. She earned her bachelor's degree at Southeastern University and Florida Southern University, Lakeland, Florida.
Along with her parents, Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Rev. Paul David Argoe whom she met at SEU and married the night of graduation, May 31, 1955. Her siblings, Katheryne (Stone) Hamill, Guy Edward Stone, Jr., and John Robert Stone also preceded her in death.
After teaching in Lakeland, Florida and Louisville, Kentucky, Dorothy taught school for 40 years in the Scott County Virginia School System from which she retired in 1999. She was an accomplished pianist and vocalist. Rev. and Mrs. Argoe were blessed to have conducted Hilton Glee Club for 25 years and ended each concert with the song, "Everybody Ought to Know Who Jesus Is."
Dorothy was a member of First Assembly of God Church where she served in various roles such as Sunday School teacher, Missionette Sponsor, children's church leader, music director, and program coordinator. Lately, she spent much of her time ministering to people over the phone.
