Dorothy Bartlett

Dorothy (Hazen) Bartlett, 85, of Bellingham passed away peacefully on May 5 with her loving family by her side. She was the beloved wife for 65 years of the late Eugene F. Bartlett and the loving mother of Robin J. Beauparlant and husband Albert of Harrisville, Rhode Island, Peter J. Bartlett and wife Jennifer of Wrentham, and Terri-Lynn Hart and husband Daniel of Bellingham. She leaves her cherished six grandchildren, Stephanie Schlesinger and husband Matthew, Ashley Beauparlant, Aarik Beauparlant, Rachel Bartlett, Nicholas Bartlett and Rebecca Brothers, and four great-grandchildren, Aaden, Elliana, Jacob and A.J.

Dorothy (Dutchie as she was affectionately called) was born in Plattsburgh, New York, on Jan. 1, 1939, the daughter of the late Lloyd E. and Mabel F. (Wildman) Hazen. She was predeceased by her siblings, Sylvia Hitchings, Norma Nordstrom, Donald Hazen, Charlotte Marquedant, David Hazen and Richard Hazen. She leaves her brother-in-law Joseph Marquedant of Hopkinton and many nieces and nephews.

Dorothy was a resident of Bellingham for 59 years, formerly of Holliston and Hopkinton. She was a graduate of Hopkinton High School class of 1956. She worked in the accounting department at EMC in Hopkinton for many years until retiring, previously working at The Big D supermarket stores in customer service. Dorothy also served as “executive assistant” for her husband, who was chief of Bellingham Auxiliary Police for over 40 years.

Dorothy was a member of the Slatersville Congregational Church and Choir. She loved to sing. Whether it was church hymns, show tunes or movie songs, she was always happiest singing with her grandchildren. Dorothy volunteered her time in many different ways over the years. She gave her time to hospice, providing respite care for patients and their families. She also volunteered at the Bellingham Police Youth Services Center in their daily operations, fishing derbies and making crafts with after-school children, reading and playing games. She also was a big part of the Operation Old Red Suit collection, which still operates today, as the Stuff a Cruiser program with the Bellingham Police Department.

She was a Girl Scout Troop Leader for both her girls when they were younger and played in the Women’s Over-30 Bellingham Softball League. When it came to sports, she loved her Red Sox, and Big Papi, but her football love was for the Seattle Seahawks, which always made for interesting conversation! She loved getting together with her family for Super Bowl Sundays, family dinners, taking walks with her grandpups, making baby quilts, jigsaw puzzles, reading and dancing with her husband. Her grandchildren/great-grandchildren were the apple of her eye. She would always make time to attend all of their various events. You would always know Gramma was there as she proudly cheered them on! Dorothy will be greatly missed. Dorothy’s family would like to thank the Bellingham Fire & Rescue for their service, kindness and professionalism over the years.

Visiting hours will be held on Wednesday, May 15, from 5-7 p.m. at Cartier’s Funeral Home, 151 South Main Street (Route 126), Bellingham. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, May 16, at 10 a.m. at the Slatersville Congregational Church, 25 Greene Street On The Common, Slatersville, Rhode Island. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory to Salmon VNA Hospice, 37 Birch Street, Milford, MA 01757, will be greatly appreciated.
