Grant, Lovertia Anne "Dee" - Concord  
Lovertia Anne "Dee" Grant, formerly of Durham, died at the Havenwood Health Center here Wednesday, July 1, 2015. Born in Haverhill, Mass., Sept. 22, 1931, she was the daughter of the late Elizabeth (Morrow) and Jesse Chase. Upon graduation from Haverhill High School in 1949, she enrolled at the University of New Hampshire. Dee married W. Arthur Grant of Newport on Dec. 24, 1951, and the couple began married life in Dayton, Ohio, where Mr. Grant was an officer in the U.S. Air Force. The couple moved to Bennington, Vt., in June 1953 where three of their four children were born. In September 1963, Mr. Grant joined the public relations staff of the University of New Hampshire and the family moved to Durham where Mrs. Grant resumed her studies at UNH, receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1968. During her 46 years in Durham, Dee edited and published a community newsletter, the Durham Resident-Advertiser, worked as an aide in the Oyster River schools, clerked for the Christmas Dove business in Barrington, and for several summers was employed by the Isle of Shoals cruise ship. She served for six years on the Durham Planning Board and was active in the Durham Community Church, the Dover Food Pantry, the Dover Children's Home and as a volunteer with New Hampshire Public Television, as well as other civic organizations. In 1991, she was presented a Governor's Volunteer Award in recognition of her public service contributions and, in 1994, the Cocheco Valley Humane Society also honored her volunteer efforts. Dee was a 20-year member of the First Parish Church in Dover and, later, a member of the Newington Town Church. The Grants moved to the Havenwood-Heritage Heights retirement community in Concord in January 2009. Mrs. Grant leaves her husband of 62 years, W.
