Dot was preceded in death by her parents Harvey M. and Ethel Zimmerman Landis, her step-mother Lois Landis, her husband Burgess H. Albert, a daughter Thelma Albert Banerjee, and her brothers Dale Landis and Glen Landis.

Born May 29, 1929, Dot grew up in a large family during the Great Depression, developing life-long qualities of being hard working, and resourceful. Over the years, Dot and her siblings participated in many service projects, some of which included providing disaster relief, building Habitat For Humanity homes, and serving at Camp Ithiel – a camp in Florida founded by their father. Dot was proficient in chair caning, loved travel, card games, and her friends at Seagate Colony. She was known for her “macaroni wiggle” and her deviled eggs.
There will be a celebration of Dot’s life at Seagate Colony (2830 Shore Dr, Virginia Beach, VA 23451) on Saturday, June 4, at 4:00 PM.

For me and many, Dot was a good friend. From deviled eggs at Happy Hour to a spectacular talent for sewing and reupholstering furniture…Dot will surely be missed at Seagate. It was a pleasure spending time with her.

Dot has always been a good friend and she will be forever missed . Her children and grandchildren were her pride and joy. She shared countless stories at our weekly card games. Rest in peace Dot. You and Burgess have raised a great family.
