Dottie served in the US Army in China in WWII where she met and married George T. Lamson (deceased). After the war they raised their family in Smithfield, RI during which time she also earned a Masters in Education from Rhode Island College. She taught 4th grade and retired from the Smithfield School System. Dottie was a life long learner and throughout her life encouraged everyone she met to make the most of their lives through education, hard work and perseverance.
She was also an avid hiker, biker, cross country skier, bridge player, classical pianist, world traveler and lover of the arts and music. Dottie was an AMC Four Thousand Foot Member and an ACBL Life Master in Duplicate Bridge. She participated in all activities with energy, curiosity and an unbridled joie de vivre.
