Doris, or Dee as she was always known, was born in Greensboro, on Nov. 21, 1930, where she grew up and went to school. She married but had no children. She lived in Alabama, Florida, Nevada and Japan, before moving back to Greensboro and then to Reidsville.
Dee had many talents, working over the years as a cashier, bookkeeper, dispatcher and truck driver and teacher. She began driving 18-wheelers just as such jobs were opening up for women, so she was a courageous pioneer in this field. After graduating from truck driving school, she drove an asphalt truck mending the streets of Greensboro. Later, she drove 18-wheelers to Columbia, S.C., and to Chicago, Ill., carrying the U.S. mail. Subsequently, she taught truck driving in Greensboro.
The Greensboro Record ran a long story and photograph of Dee on June 21, 1977, calling her the Pixie of Paving. It said, "Dee Loftin (Howard) is one of those women who is paving the way into what used to be a man's world. Literally... without her hard-hat, she clears 5 feet by an inch. But reaching high over her head for the door handle, she pulls her 103 pounds easily into the cab."
She is survived by her brother, David Breedon and wife, Jane of Carmichael, Calif.; aunt, Eleanor Benson Bennett of Greensboro; and many loving cousins, including Susan Kirkman, Betty Hutchison, Laura Graham and husband, Larry, all of Greensboro, Nancy Benson of Watauga County, Margaret Cooper of Cape Cod, Anne Pasch of Anchorage, Alaska, Ellie Lucas of Moose Lake, Wis., and Richard Welch of Malvern, Ark.
