Dorothy was born March 3, 1925, in East Randolph, Vermont, the daughter of the late Wesley and Esther (Clark) Sargeant. She enjoyed playing bingo and cards, especially rummy, crocheting, making ceramics, traveling and baking pies, but most of all she cherished the time spent with her family.

Dorothy also is survived by two sisters, Roberta Rouviere of Chandler, Arizona, and Shirley Sargeant of Columbus, Ohio; a daughter-in-law, Carol Burrows of Windsor Locks; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband, she was also predeceased by a son, Barry Burrows; six brothers, Herbert, Henry, Duane, Homer, Sherwood, and John Sargeant; and three sisters, Mary Bashaw, Mae Goodrich and Patricia Whitman.
