Dori Anne Bechtold
Weston Resident
Dori Anne Bechtold, age 62, of Weston, formerly of Westport, passed away peacefully on March 30, 2012 in St. Vincent's Medical Center.
She will be lovingly remembered by her sister, Edwinna Nault, of Cape Canaveral, FL; her brother, Kimball Bechtold, and his wife, Joan, of Southport; her cherished niece and nephews, Tracy Buck, of Rockledge, FL, Scott Nault, of Merritt Island, FL, Justin Bechtold, of Black Rock, Gavin Bechtold, of San Diego, CA; grandniece and grandnephews, Heather and Devyn Nault, Eric Nault; longtime devoted friend, Patricia Giannini, of Weston.
Born and raised in Freeport, New York, Dori was the daughter of the late Edward and Edna Bedell Bechtold. Growing up on the water in Long Island nurtured what would be a lifelong love of water activities for Dori, including boating, beach visits, and lap swimming at the Westport YMCA. She also enjoyed tending to her home and garden.
Dori found great satisfaction in helping others. Working in sales for Cuthberson Imports for many years, she changed her career to become a Certified Nurse's Aid, and cared for many clients with her private practice.
Dori truly loved her family and friends. She possessed a gift for making those in her life feel uniquely special. Dori will be deeply missed by her family, friends, and the many individuals whom she so positively touched.
