Cherished daughter of the late William Henry and Effie S. Lyon who raised their family in Lexington. Sister to the late William Henry Lyon Jr., Robert Lowell Lyon, and Richard MacAlpine Lyon. She is survived by her dear sisters Judith Ann Quinn and Elizabeth Conant Bucell. She will be dearly missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins; and many close friends whom she considered family. She graduated from Lexington High School in 1954 and attended Garland College in Boston. She was an avid reader. She enjoyed welcoming friends and family in her home which was full of love and laughter, and she will be remembered for her delicious Chowder and Baked Beans. She cherished many summers at the Cape as a child and as a mother and passed on her love of nature to her daughters, and granddaughters. Dorothy was a lifelong Girl Scout.
