LISBON, NH -- Dorothy S. Deming passed away on Monday, July 2, 2018 at the Lafayette Center, Genesis Nursing Home in Franconia, New Hampshire.

Dorothy was born on April 10, 1932 in Bath, NH to Wesley A. Silver and Alma (Bryant) Silver. A short time after her family moved to Lisbon, where she grew up and married the love of her life, Maurice A. Deming Sr.

Dorothy met Maurice when he drove truck for her brother, Clifford's bread route. They dated and were married on June 29, 1952. Maurice and Dorothy made their home in Lisbon and started a family of three boys and two girls.

Dorothy enjoyed raising her family. When her children were young, she would babysit other children in the town. She got her driver's license when her children were older. She loved going to ball games the boys played in.

When the children were grown, she worked cleaning private homes and area motels. When she retired, she enjoyed their grandchildren as they came along. Maurice and Dorothy did a little traveling to see relatives.

Dorothy's hobbies included sewing, knitting, putting together photo albums of family members for her children, brothers and sisters and listening to music. She loved collecting teddy bears and dolls, and having yard sales on her porch.
