Doris E. (Glidden) Paquin, 95, beloved wife of the late Charles I. Paquin, died peacefully at home Friday, July 6, 2018, with her loving family at her side. She was also accompanied by Richard and Ian Herms.

She was born June 8, 1923, in Maine, the daughter of the late Alvin and Minnie Glidden. She has been a resident of Manchester since 1984. Previously she and her loving husband were residents of Coventry for over 40 years. Doris and her husband owned Carlson's Express located in Manchester from 1970 until the late '80s. She loved to travel with her husband and they visited almost every state in the U.S. including Alaska. They spent summers in Groton Long Point, enjoying their boat and summer home. Doris and Charles also enjoyed time in Mexico in the 1940s, camping out in the desert with close friends and family. She had a great love for dogs and raised French poodles in her earlier years. Doris was very creative, painted many great oil paintings and made beautiful wedding cakes, making them for many of her nieces, nephews, and friends, as well as her daughter.

Doris is survived by her loving family: her daughter, Sharon Paquin of Manchester with whom she made her home; her two special grandchildren, SaraJean (Walsh) Rudman and her husband, David, and their son, Charles David Rudman, of Glastonbury, and Eric Walsh and his wife, Kayla, of Manchester; and numerous nieces, nephews, and their families. In addition to her husband and parents, Doris was predeceased by 12 sisters and brothers.
