MRS. DOROTHY MAY HOARE
, affectionately better known to us all as Dot
was born nearby at Lower Sticker on the 17th November 1926.
At the time of her
had reached the age of 81 and up until two issues ago was still performing the delivery of this magazine in the Old Hill area.
Prior to that she
also carried out the delivery in Creed Lane.
Dot retired from her employment with the St. Austell shop of Edwin Broad at the age of 60 but continued with her community interests until her illness forced her to withdraw.
A loyal member of Grampound's branch of the International Women's Institute organisation Dorothy served her local branch as a Committee member for many years.
The tender loving care given to their favourite animals, donkeys, is clearly illustrated by the collection of trophies won at many Agricultural Shows, including the Royal Cornwall.
was a great supporter of "The Grampound Times" collecting little bits of interesting copy for inclusion, but most of all she
enjoyed performing her
delivery to homes in Creed Lane and Old Hill, relishing the friendly comments that greeted her
Rest in peace Dorothy
- we shall miss you greatly.
