Dorothy Jo “DJ” Washington of Whitesville, West Virginia passed away unexpectedly on January 6th, 2024. She was born in Charleston, West Virginia to George Carlos Washington and Dorothy Geneva Washington. Dorothy Jo attended Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College and Marshall University and devoted her life to helping others through Nursing in West Virginia and Ohio. DJ led a life that truly epitomized a willingness to give the shirt off her back for anyone in need, especially children. DJ never met a person she didn’t try to help in some way. Preceding her in death was her father, George C. Washington, paternal grandparents George H. & Blanch E. (Garten) Washington and maternal grandparents Sidney B. & Sylvia V. (Beverly) Williams. She is survived by her mother, Dorothy G.
