Birth: Aug. 19, 1922
Death: Aug. 5, 2009

Dorothy J. Hess, of Atlantic Beach, FL, died August 5, 2009 at the age of 86. "Dotty" was born August 19, 1922, in Hollis, NH to Maude and Merle B. Jones, Sr. She graduated from Keene State Teachers College in 1943 and greatly cherished her early years as an elementary school teacher. In June 1946, Dotty married John A. Hess, an ensign in the U.S. Navy. Together they shared 63 wonderful years of marriage and many travels with the Navy. They also enjoyed innumerable adventures sailing and cruising the eastern U.S. coast and the Caribbean with family and friends. They were blessed with two daughters, Pamela Levy (Joe) of Locust Grove, GA and Carol Hepworth (John) of Boise, ID, as well as two very loved grandchildren, Justin and Chrissie Hepworth. Family was always Dotty's first and foremost priority and she excelled at her primary job of being a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. Dotty was preceded in death by her brother, Merle B. Jones, Jr. of Francestown, NH, and her sister, Pauline Lowrey, of Lowell, MA. She is survived by her husband, daughters, sons-in-law, grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. A "Celebration of Life" will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 12th, at 10:30 a.m., in Windward Commons at Fleet Landing, One Fleet Landing Blvd., Atlantic Beach, FL. Friends are invited to share memories and stories of their times with Dotty. Burial will be at a future date at Arlington National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Mayo Clinic.
