Plan Ahead

Urban, Dorothy N. Alsup


Dorothy N. Alsup Urban was called home to be with the Lord on September 5th, 2021 at the age of 92.  She was born in Dallas on December 7th, 1928 to parents: William F. Alsup and Minnie Lee Kirk.  She graduated from W.H. Adamson High School.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband of almost 65 years, Harry R. Urban Jr., a Navy Veteran of WWII, her infant son Harry (Sonny) R. Urban III,  her father William F. Alsup, her mother Minnie Lee Kirk, her brother William (Bill) E. Alsup, and her sister Hazel (Marie) Stites.

Dorothy is survived by her daughter Sherry A. Springer-Peters of Bowling Green, KY and her grand-daughter Michelle A. Springer of Dallas, TX.

She was a long time member of the Presbyterian Church.  Also, she retired from Teledyne Geotech in Garland, TX, where she assisted in making instruments that went off to the Apollo Moon Landing Mission.  Later in her career, she was  Manager of a woman’s clothing boutique in Dallas, as well as a Manager at a Fuller-Brush store.

Her greatest joy was being with her family and close friends.  Both Dorothy and Harry enjoyed going dancing in their younger years and the casino’s and horse races in they’re later years.

They also enjoyed going camping to the local lakes with family and friends, during Sherry’s childhood.  Dorothy enjoyed gardening, sewing, as well as fixing and repurposing items.

Dorothy leaves behind a legacy of boldness, generosity, kindness, sincerity, compassion and most of all love.  She was a beloved daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.

She’ll be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her.

The Interment and graveside service will be held on Friday, October 29th, at 3:00 pm at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery, located at 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, TX 75211. For more information please call 214-467-3374.

    My mom and I are reflecting and wanted to share a story or two about our beloved Aunt Dorothy.
    When my mom and dad were first engaged they enjoyed going dancing with Dorothy, Harry and sister (my grandmother) Marie and Bill. What fun times.
    When mom asked Michelle to be their flower girl Aunt Dorothy asked if it would be ok to use her Easter dress and put a purple sash on it. Mom said of course, and Michelle was such a doll.
    Then when I was born Dorothy and Harry came to our house and brought me a teddy bear rocker. They were so tickled.
    I remember going over to Aunt Dorothy’s house in Garland and playing in the back yard while she gardened.
    Such a lovely and kind human being. She will be missed.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
