Mahurin, Mary Dorothy "Dot"  
On Wednesday, June 15, 2016, Mary Dorothy "Dot" Mahurin, formerly from Gorham, New Hampshire, and the matriarch of a remarkable blended family, passed away quietly at her home in Tolland. She was 92 years young. Dot broke the mold. With a playful, mischievous gleam in her eyes, powerful voice, and an astounding and wonderful laugh, this talented musician, thespian, and artist was the constant companion and cribbage arch-enemy of her loyal husband and trusted sidekick, Ike, for over 52 years. Wherever Dot was, laughter could be found. There was always room at her table for another friend. Her smile, laugh, music, and cookies will be most sorely missed by all who knew her. She leaves behind her husband, Ike; special son, James Tanguay; and so many beloved children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends that one would require a scorecard to properly list them all here. There are no calling hours, and services will be held at a date to be determined by the fates later; on that day, there will be music and laughter, good food, and warm, precious memories to be shared with all. In lieu of flowers, a contribution in Dot's name to Dot and Ike's favorite charity, The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp at www.holeinthewallgang.org would be welcomed and deeply appreciated. Until we all meet again, we know that Dot will have the coffeepot at the ready, and the cribbage board warmed up for Ike. We're pretty sure she's going to win the cut, too, and start with first crib.
