RAYMOND — Dorothy “Dottie” Turner, 78, an amazing person, wife, mother, sister and nurse, passed peacefully on Monday, Aug. 20, 2018, at the Spring Brook Nursing Facility.

Dottie was the daughter of the late Roy and Elizabeth Raynor and was born Jan. 3, 1940, along with her twin sister, Dolly. Raised in Raymond, she attended Raymond schools and then graduated from Windham High School.

In 1962, she married the love of her life and soulmate, Charles P. Turner Sr. If you saw Dottie, most likely you would also see Charlie. Then in 1967, they had their only child, Charles P. Turner Jr. “Chuck,” who she took great pride in being a wonderful mom. She also went on to become a registered nurse, a career that was perfect for her in every way being such a caring person.

As a RN, she went to work at a Lewiston hospital in intensive care, taught prospective nurses at Norway hospital, and ran the nursing program for Oxford High School for 30 years. She retired after teaching in Oxford in 2004. For Dottie, that only lasted about a week before she decided that she still had much more to give, and became the director of nursing at Casco Inn Nursing Facility for many more years until retirement number two. During this time, she also was the caretaker to her own mom, Elizabeth, who passed in 2001.

Dottie enjoyed all outside activities at their home and camp on Panther Pond, including snowmobiling, swimming, ATVs, watercraft, but most of all, boating and spending time with her family.

Dottie is lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her husband of 56 years; her two sisters, Dolly and Skip; and her son, Chuck Turner; extended family, friends, coworkers and many more.

Dottie always left a lasting impression on everyone she met and was not easily forgotten.

Visitation was held on Tuesday, Aug. 28 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Hall Funeral Home, 165 Quaker Ridge Road, Casco. A private burial will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be left for the family at
