Cloutier, Dorothy H. "Dot"  
KITTERY, Maine - Dorothy "Dot" H. Cloutier, 85, of Kittery Estates passed away peacefully at her home with her family by her side on April 22, 2015. Born at the family homestead in Appleton, Maine on April 5, 1930, she was one of ten children to the late Alton O. and Nellie E. (Meservey) Pease. After graduating from Appleton High School, she ventured to Palm Beach, Fla., in 1951 to work at The Breakers Hotel for several seasons and also spent summers working at the Soper's Pines Inn and Kelley Acres Resort in the Catskill Mountains. While working at The Breakers she met the love of her life, Harold R. Cloutier Sr., and they married in May, 1954 in Camden, Maine. They returned to Florida to spend one more season as a married couple working at The Breakers before moving back to New England. In 1955, they settled in Kittery, Maine on Martin Road where they would raise a family and make their home for over 55 years until Harold's passing. Dot made her home there for a couple of more years before moving to Kittery Estates and enjoying all the friends she made there. Dot and Harold had a wonderful retirement spending spring, summer and fall at their home in Maine and wintering in West Palm Beach, Florida where they could see the resort that brought them together just a short distance away. They enjoyed trips to Palm Springs, California, Seattle, Washington, and the Catskill Mountains in New York. They loved taking day trips together taking in the scenery and visiting the local coffee shops and restaurants that knew them by name. As a family, they spent summer vacation at a cottage on Sebec Lake in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine and enjoyed camping at Rangeley and Moosehead Lakes. Dot was an active volunteer with the Kittery PTA and an avid bowler with the "Jollyettes" at Bowl-O-Rama in Portsmouth, N.H. Her first love was unquestionably her family and spending time together. Over the years, she enjoyed cooking and baking, sewing and knitting and was also known throughout her extended family and friends for writing letters and sending cards. She never missed a birthday, anniversary or a special celebration - this gave her a tremendous amount of joy. She is survived by her family; son, Harold (Hal) Cloutier Jr.; daughters, Janylee McGlinchy, Brenda Lavigne and husband, Tom; granddaughter, Catherine McGlinchy, grandsons, Matthew and Michael Lavigne; brothers, Lawrence Pease, Vernon Pease, Richard Pease; sisters Jeanne Gibson, Anita Pease; and her dear friends, Priscilla Lukas, Barbara (Bobby) Patterson and Sherry & Eddie Kirk. Along with her husband, she was predeceased by her daughter, Lynn; brothers, Robert Pease, Allan Pease; sisters, June Pease, and Nancy Pease. As she wished, Dot will be buried next to her husband at Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Eliot, Maine after a private graveside service. Family and friends are invited to share memories and refreshments at a celebration of her life to be held on Saturday, May 16 from 12 to 3 p.m. at Spring Hill on Pond Road in South Berwick, Maine.
