Dottie was an amazing lady and dear friend to our family and especially to my mother-in-law Ada Tuttle. When Ada lived with us in Acton, Dottie took her under her wing as they volunteered at the Acton Food Pantry. They became fast friends and we enjoyed her company at dinners and various gatherings. Even when Ada moved to Georgia, Dottie kept in touch with her and she and I often chatted by phone when she moved to Charlton. We were all truly blessed to know and love Dottie and were thrilled that she had that special 100th birthday moment with her beloved Red Sox! I send my deepest condolences to Bob and her beloved family. She was a gem and will be sorely missed.
Nancye and John Tuttle and family

Dottie was one special lady! We were friends for nearly forty years rejoicing and commiserating over things at the Acton Nursing Service and the Acton Food Pantry. After we left Acton we visited at Charlton and she and I wrote or phoned every few weeks to brag about our wonderful families and catch up on eachothers' aches and pains.
She will be missed for her wit, honesty, feistiness, and good spirit.

Dear Bob and family,
How saddened I was to learn about the passing of your beloved mother. What a wonderful long life she had and to throw out the first pitch at the age of 100.
John and I send you our prayers and deepest thoughts to you as you mourn the loss and rejoice in her life.
May our dear Lord comfort you and uphold you during this time and always.
Yours with much love,
Sharon and John Sweet

I worked with Dottie for many years at the Acton election polls. She was always faithful, cheerful and full of energy. Miss you, Dottie. Glad you made it to Fenway last year! My sympathies to your family. Marion Maxwell

Dottie was a special lady; warm and caring, a faithful and loyal friend and a true Christian. She and George were such vital members of the Acton Congregational Church and it was my honor and privilege to know and work with both of them. Dottie will be missed but she will never, ever be forgotten. Rest in peace, my dear friend.
