She was employed at the former Fulton Co. Infirmary as a CNA, and was a CSEA representative for many years.

Dean (Miriam) Dustin, Lynne Dustin, Laurie (Kevin) Kimball, Tracy (Paul) Blatchford, and Patrick Johnson; granchildren, Mary Jo (Ken) Mowrey Bush, Jessica (Jeff) Mowrey Eaton, Anthony Jr. (Rene) Mowrey, Justin (Edith) Rogers, DeAnna Rogers (Nick) Scarfone, Nick and Ryan Rogers, Devon (Shane) Rogers Houghton, Alex Yesse, and Benjamin (Addy) Blatchford; great-grandchildren, Anthony III, Cecelia and Joseph Mowrey, Kalena and Noah Eaton, Peyton, Jacelyn and Makenna Bush, Justin Rogers Jr., Emerson and Lorenzo Martelle, Grayson and Graham Houghton, Emily, Sam, and Luke Blatchford, Cody and Connor Johnson; her sister, Jacki (Dave) Carbonneau of New Hampshire. Dorothy was predeceased by her husband, Francis Pat Johnson; brothers, Richard and George Merrill; and sister, Alice Jane Hunter.

It was Dorothy’s wishes that there would be no funeral services. Burial will be held at the convenience of the family. Online condolences to www.amicofuneralhome.com.
