Dot was born on June 4, 1936 at home in Pascoag, RI to William and Florence (Whitaker) Barrows, the youngest of three children. She married Roger Chabot in Woonsocket, RI on March 22, 1958, and they celebrated 34 happy years together before he passed in July 1992. Dot completed her nurse's training in Milford, MA and worked for many years as a nurse, finishing her career at Medway Country Manor in 2001. She moved from Massachusetts to Brookline, VT when she retired where she made many new friends. She traveled with her children frequently, visiting England, Scotland, Germany, Alaska, New Orleans, the Bahamas, Maryland, Florida, Texas, and Las Vegas. Her first greatest joy was being surrounded by her six children, their spouses, and her seven grandchildren. Dot loved eating, particularly Chinese food, and was often heard to ask "what's for suppah?" when eating breakfast! She also enjoyed cooking, gardening, playing Scrabble, attending senior meals with her friends, and singing in the choir at the Congregational Church in Newfane, VT.
