Dorothy “Ann” Choquette
White River Junction, Vt. — Dorothy “Ann” Choquette, died Thursday, April 11, 2013, at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H.
Ann was born Dec. 23, 1928, in Hartford, Vt. the ninth child of Carl W. and Caroline (Wallace) Cameron. She worked at New England Telephone as an operator while she attended high school. Ann graduated from Hartford High School class of 1946. She then went to work for AG Dewey Co., and was married to J. Richard “Dick” Choquette on Sept. 17, 1949. In 1961, Ann went to work for the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in White River junction, retiring in 1992. Dick passed away in 1991. Ann was remarried Oct. 19, 2002, to Dennis H. Raymond. They enjoyed wintering in Sebring, Fla.
Ann was a soft spoken strong woman, who was able to overcome challenges without bringing any attention to her own ailments.
She loved to travel the world, spending time at the beach or at the poolside, where she would read, work on puzzles, eat chocolate, or refine her palate searching for the best cheeseburger. Ann enjoyed spending time on the ballroom floor dancing or at the golf links, and talking with friends, of whom she had many, due to her magnetic personality. But her true passion was her family and the time she spent with them.
She is predeceased by three brothers, Wallace, Everett, and Jenness Cameron; and five sisters, Charlotte Champney, Margery Heneage, Mary Young, Caroline Twiss, and Susan Watson.
She is survived by her husband, Dennis H. Raymond of White River Junction; daughter, Denise Choquette of South Strafford, Vt.; two granddaughters, Jodi Schollaert of Canonsburg, Pa. and Jennifer Gray of Cambridge, Vt. and many nieces and nephews.
