BRUNSWICK — Dorothy E. Pearson, 91, died Nov. 12 at Horizons Living and Rehab Center, with her family at her side.
She was born in Cambridge, Mass., on Jan. 11, 1922, to Archie G. Mower and Laleah Walsh Mower. She graduated in 1941 from Cambridge Academy in Cambridge, and attended Boston University.
She met the love of her life, Alden W. Pearson, at choir practice, and the couple married in 1943. They lived for a time in Cambridge, later moved to several towns in New York, and then relocated to Freeport, Brunswick and Bowdoinham.
While living in Camden, N.Y., Pearson worked as a public librarian, a job in which she took much pride. She also attended classes at Empire College, enjoyed reading, and was a member of both the Mayflower Society and the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Pearson was an active member of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Brunswick. A talented musician with a beautiful singing voice, she and her husband continued their harmonizing for years in the church choir.
She was predeceased by her husband in 2008. She is survived by her three daughters, Laleah Parker, and her husband, Samuel, of Bowdoinham, Elizabeth Klug, and her husband, Richard, of Florence, N.Y., and Roberta Weisbrod, and her husband, Gerald, of Perryville, N.Y.; grandchildren, Andrew Parker, and his wife, Lisa, Christopher Parker, and his wife, Janet, Erryl Parker, Richard Klug and Katherine Weisbrod; two great-grandchildren, Caitlyn Parker and Clayton Weisbrod; and her husband’s nephew and three nieces, whom she regarded as her own.
A memorial will be held in celebration of her life at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 27 Pleasant St., Brunswick, on Saturday, Nov. 30, at 11 a.m., with a reception to follow.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to St. Paul’s Choir, P.O. Box 195, Brunswick, ME 04011; to Camden Public Library, 57 Second St., Camden, NY 13316; or to the Horizons Activity Fund, 29 Maurice Drive, Brunswick, ME 04011.
