Selectmen for being the oldest Chichester resident. She came to
Chichester in 1984 settling on Bear Hill Road where she still
resides today. Dottie has been very active in the Chichester
Historical Society, sharing her artistic talents by sketching
two local barns which are now on note paper sold by the Society.

Porch” and “On The Front Porch – Take Two.” She is the mother of
two children, Denise and Tom.
