Dorothy Diamond Slone, 87, of Ashland passed away Thursday, May 14, 2020 surrounded by family at Kings Daughters Medical Center in Ashland, KY.

Grandchildren Angela Felty, Bryan (April) Slone, Justin Slone, Samantha (Danny) Childers, Dallas (Cody) Franklin, Jared (Fiancé Ashley Colwell) Slone, Andreah (Jacob) Williams, Emma Slone, Katelyn Virgin.
