I am so sorry for your loss. Dottie was the one I always went to when I was new at the Town Clerk business. She helped me with what to do and, more importantly, how to do it.

I don't have enough loving or kind words for Dottie. From the Suffield Players to SCC where we played and won the Calcutta one year we shared laughter and joy.

Dottie exemplified the best of Suffield. She was born and raised in Town choosing to make it her lifetime home. She traveled extensively, but always knew where her roots were and worked in so many capacities to make Suffield a better place for everyone. To her own surprise she lived to be a "Town Elder" that we all consulted and emulated. Rest in Peace dear friend and roll model. Many follow in your footsteps!
