Doris A. Rayno, 85, of Franklin, passed away peacefully of natural causes on January 11, 2021.

Doris was born on August 14, 1935 in Laconia NH to Thomas and Bertha (Sylvester) Paquette.

Doris married Donald Rayno in 1953, and they raised five children. She loved her family unconditionally. She made everyone, family and friends, feel welcomed in her home. She was a humble servant to God and her family.

Doris was quick witted and had a great sense of humor. She was always happy and never complained. Her Faith meant the most to her.

Years ago, Doris worked as a telephone operator for New England Tel & Tel, a cashier at the A & P and was a seamstress at various local dress shops and at Tricnit in Franklin.

Her hobbies included playing the piano, crocheting, sewing, crossword puzzles and game shows especially Jeopardy. She sewed all her children's school clothes. One of her goals was to crochet an altar cloth which she did. She sewed dozens and dozens of items for the Missionary Servants for the country of Haiti including diapers and dresses.

She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

She is survived by her children, Marie MacMartin of Franklin, Jean Lawrence of Franklin, Andrew and James Rayno both of Maryland and her wonderful sister, Janet Jurta. Grandchildren: Lynn Laflamme, Alex Lawrence, Alanna Becco & Sarah Erichsen.

Great Grandchildren: Ava & Brielle Laflamme, Vinny, Nina & Franco Becco, Everly, Adelyn & Luna Erichsen.

She is predeceased by her husband Donald in 2005, her daughter Teresa Collins in 2015, her brothers Thomas L. Paquette and Walter E. Paquette.

In lieu of flowers please donate to St. Gabriel Parish, PO Box 490, Franklin, NH 03235.

There will be no calling hours due to Covid-19 restrictions. Services will be private and there will be a celebration in the spring for everyone.

I remember Doris quite well. I was one of the CLOGSTON daughter, who live diagonal across the street from Doris and Donald.
I remember "bothering" her with visiting almost daily.
Played with the girls, Marie, Theresa and Jeanie (who was baby at that time).
We had such a good time. Fond memories.
Doris would roll my hair on Sunday evening for school the next day.
She will be missed.....Rest well, Doris....
My heartfelt sympathies to the family.....

I remember Doris so well, visiting Marie, Theresa and Jeannie. She was always so welcoming and so kind and so, so funny. To all of the family, I'm so sorry to hear of her passing. I know she'll be missed. She was a great Mom. My heart goes out to you all.

My Dear Janet & Jean & Marie & Andrew & James

It was with a very heavy heart and deep sadness that I read of Doris's passing in the Concord Monitor online just moments ago. Although I have lived in California for over 41 years, I feel that I know Doris well. Brenda has told me so much about her over these many years, about what a loving and wonderful mother she is, and what a devoted and inseparable sister and friend she has been to her beloved Janet. I could feel her beautiful spirit the moment that I met her.

The loss of a mother is like no other. She loves us unconditionally from the moment we are born. She is the light in every storm that we encounter throughout our lives. Soon you will see subtle signs that she is still near, watching over you and protecting you with her same unconditional love, just as she did during her journey here on earth.

I'm sure that your father and Teresa, and her beloved mother & father, and Walter & Thomas were waiting for her with their loving arms extended to in Heaven to welcome her home.

My thoughts and my prayers are with you, and with all of Doris's grandchildren and great grandchildren, and with her loving nieces and nephews, and with Brenda and all of those whose lives she touched, who will love her forever and who will miss her dearly.
