Putnam – Dorothy E. Alcott, 83, of Woodstock Ave, was born into the next world on Saturday, August 21, 2021, at home surrounded by her family after a long courageous battle with cancer, and has finally found her peace. She was the loving wife of the late Joseph Alcott, Sr. Born in Lexington, MA, and the daughter of the late Alfred and Vera (Twombley) Nutt.
Dorothy is survived by sons Dennis Alcott and his wife Naruemon of Putnam and Kevin Alcott and his wife Maraya of Temecula, CA; her surrogate daughter and travel buddy Lisa Foisy of Brooklyn; her sister, Trudy Ann Wade of Port Orange, FL; and her grandchildren, Lindsay Falanga, and Andrew & James Alcott; and several great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her son, Joseph Alcott, Jr, her sisters Cynthia Wilson and Shirley Jean Nolan and her beloved dogs, Susu & Ping.
Her passion for any and all travel is clearly documented by her spoon collection and the numerous stories she shares with family and friends. When asked if she wants to go on a trip, first answer is yes; followed by where are we going? Dorothy also loved her dogs, and am sure that they will be the first to greet her upon her arrival in the next world. She was an avid reader and enjoyed knitting and baking; in fact many readers may have had experienced her birthday or wedding cakes.
Dorothy worked as an administrative assistant for Marianapolis Preparatory School as well as Kaman Aerospace for many years.
