Dorcas Jean Phalen Walker, 83, of Morgantown, WV and Huntersville, NC, passed away on Friday, September 6, 2019 at Mon General Hospital in Morgantown.  She was born in Gordon, WV (Logan Co.) on February 2, 1936, a daughter of the late Wallace V. Watson and Mondaine McCallister Mollahan. 

Dorcas is survived by three children: Charles Lee “Dusty” Phalen Jr. and wife, Lee Ann of St. Albans, WV, Michael Wallace “Mick” Phalen and wife, Jennifer of Huntersville, NC, and Jill Anne Olexa, and husband Eric of Morgantown; brother, Danny Watson and wife, Dreama of Cross Lanes, WV; seven grandchildren: Zachary Phalen, Robin Sylvester, Megan Persinger, Michael Phalen, Bethany Phalen, Hannah Roth and Molly Abraham; 12 great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Gay Watson; as well as many nieces and nephews.

 Dorcas was a graduate of St. Albans High School. Dorcas worked a variety of jobs in Charleston and Clarksburg, which included time at Haddads, as a Realtor, co-owner and operator of a T & L Hotdogs franchise, and as a bereavement coordinator for Peoples Hospice.  She was a devout Christian and was very involved in the Family Worship Center in Lakeland, Florida, where she served as a coordinator for seniors and previously with Faith Fellowship Church in Clarksburg when she resided there.  Dorcas was known for her outgoing personality, her wit, her fashion sense and her willingness to speak her mind. Always the social butterfly she belonged to the Women’s Club at St. Albans, sang in the church choir, and she loved mingling with her friends at Harmony Independent Living in Morgantown.

Jill, in my memory I still can see your beautiful Mother always smiling, soft spoken, when we attended Faith Fellowship. For a short time after she moved to Florida, we kept in touch. She will always be remembered for her sweet spirit. I loved her and know she will be missed by all for quite a while. One day the Grand Reunion will fill our hearts with joy as we see her radiant face again. Most of all praising Jesus together forever and ever. With love and prayers.. Judy K. Haught

Donna and I have only know Dorcas for a short time here at Harmony in Morgantown. She was always friendly and outgoing and ready to express an opinion based on her past experiences. She really liked when we missed BINGO. She said we were to lucky and kept her from get a chocolate bar. Dorcas is already missed.

Prayers and good thoughts to her family.

So many special memories our families spent together oh so many many moons ago ... my sister mentioned to me today and it was vivid in my mind hanging out at Chuck and Dorcas' house in St, Albans and watch the movies from the Valley Drive-in Theater. I also recall, well over 30 years ago, my husband and I moved from Charleston to Clarksburg, and within the first year, my newest neighbor was my Aunt Dorcas. It was only for a short time, but I loved having family that close. Much love to you Dusty, Mick and Jill ... May our precious beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister in law, and aunt Rest In Peace.
