Dorothy L. Evans
She was born September 1, 1924, in Everett, Mass., the daughter of the late Harry K. and Jennie E. (Brown) Kibby.
She was a graduate of the Everett, Mass., school system. She was a longtime resident of Fairhaven,
Mass., moving to Gilford in 1985, and Laconia in 1993.
Prior to her retirement, she was employed as a claims adjuster with the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance.
She was an active parishioner of St. James Episcopal Church and was a hospital volunteer at Lakes Region General Hospital.
Dottie will be remembered by her many dear friends as one classy lady with a quick wit and kind heart. Her off the cuff one-liners, always thoughtful advice, and sparkling blue eyes will be greatly missed. God bless her, and may she rest in peace.
Dorothy is survived by her husband of 63 years, Donald M. Evans, a resident of the N.H. Veterans Home, Tilton; son David K. Evans and his wife, Joyce, of Meredith; daughter Jane L. Evans of Portland, Maine; grandchildren Chapin L. Evans and Harrison K. Evans, both of Meredith; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers, Harry C. Kibby of Everett, Mass., and Charles L. Kibby of Lady Lake, Fla.
