Dorothy grew up in Peterborough where she met Harold.  While dating they frequented the dance floors.  They purchased their lifelong residence at 17 Maple Ave in Peterborough in 1959.  Dorothy  started as a teller at the First national Bank in Peterborough and worked her way up to a VP over her career. Harold and Dorothy loved to sing in the church choir at the Union Congregational Church and were long time members.  Family, being at the core of Dorothy’s life, she spent much of her time at one mother’s home or the other with constant love and support.  When not engaged in family activities she had a competitive group of card players and friends. 

Dorothy is survived by nephew Herbert Capron Jr of Boxford, MA,  and nieces Sharon Fields of Swanzey, NH, and Charlene Loomis of Waterbury, CT. and several great Nieces and Nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband, Harold W. Capron, after 62 years of marriage, in 2012.
