WHITE RIVER JCT. -- Doris “Dee” Chase, 76, died Monday, May 14, 2007, at her home in White River Junction surrounded by family.

Dee was born August 12, 1930, in Bennington, a daughter of Ernest W. and Gloria (Williamson) Hoisington. She received her education in Arlington schools and St. Joseph’s Business College in Bennington as well as training in employee and labor relations at the Postal Management Academy in Silver Springs, Md. She married Everett Chase in 1951 and they have resided in White River Junction throughout their marriage. She has had a varied business career including operating her own business service, a medical secretary at the VA hospital, an administrative assistant to the district manager of the U.S. Postal Service and as director of employee and labor relations. She retired in 1989.

Mrs. Chase was active in a number of organizations, serving as treasurer of the Gates Library Loyal Club and of the White River Junction Methodist Church, as chairperson of the Hartford Booster Club and as an actress with the Hartford Players Group. She was best known as a certified Lay Speaker of the United Methodist Church, providing pulpit supply for a number of small churches in Vermont and New Hampshire.

She enjoyed simple pleasures such as traveling with her husband, reading, writing, gardening, cooking, studying financial news and volunteering. Her most precious time, however, was that spent with family, sharing the wonders of her children and grandchildren’s growth and development, and time with friends. Mrs. Chase was predeceased by her parents, two brothers, Paul and William, and a sister, Phyllis Cross.

Survivors include her husband, two daughters, Pamela DeTore and her husband James of Roslindale, Mass., and Carol Cronce and her husband Neal of Rochester; a sister, Shirley McTernan of East Arlington; two grandchildren; and a number of nieces and nephews.

Friends may call at the Knight Funeral Home in White River Junction Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. A memorial service will be held Friday at 4 p.m. at the White River Junction Methodist Church conducted by the Rev. Thomas Mousin.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Stevens Scholarship Fund in care of UMC, 106 Gates Street, White River Jct., VT 05001.
