Born in Manchester, NH on January 10, 1949, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Dorothy (Marion) Cloutier.  She was a graduate of St. George's High School and earned her cosmetology degree from Michael’s School of Hair Design.  She worked as a hair stylist for many years before retiring from Salon 28 in 2013, and was a lifelong resident of The Queen City.

Dorothy had a love for nature and animals.  She especially liked watching the birds on her property.  She also enjoyed gardening, Tole painting and refinishing furniture.  She went to many concerts throughout her life.  In her younger years, she liked to go to the beach, ride her motorcycle, hike and ski.  She once raced at the speedway in NH and won!  She was compassionate, caring, forgiving, and loved to have fun. She was always willing to help people or animals when possible. 

Above all else, she will be remembered as a loving mother, wife, sister, aunt and friend.
