Subscription Update Obituary

     Dorothy M. (Nault) LaPorte, 100, of Auburn passed away peacefully on Tuesday September 3, 2019 surrounded by her loving family. She was the wife of the late Alphonse F. LaPorte, with whom she shared 66 years of marriage.

Born and raised in Worcester, Dorothy was the daughter of the late Henry L. and Mary C. (Powers) Nault. She was educated in Worcester and graduated from Commerce High School in 1938, after which she met and married the love of her life, Alphonse. The two settled in Auburn and began to raise their family.

Always involved in the community, Dorothy was a member of the Worcester/Auburn Emblem Club, Chester P. Tuttle Post #279 American Legion Women’s Auxiliary, and was a lifelong member of North American Martyr’s Church in Auburn. In her free time, she could often be seen working on her crafts – she loved ceramics, in particular, as well as knitting afghans for her grandchildren. She was a dedicated wife and mother to her family, always ensuring that they were well cared for.

Dorothy leaves her daughter, Dorothy A. Montville and her husband Emile F. Montville Jr. of Auburn; grandchildren, Tina M. Guerin and her husband Joseph Guerin of Spencer, Timothy F. Montville of Auburn; great-grandchildren, Jenniffer, Ashley, Travis, Kyle, Brianna; and a nephew, William Melican of Southington, CT. Dorothy was predeceased by her sister, Helen C. Melican.

A special thank you to Life Care Center of Auburn (Primrose) for the love and care they gave Dorothy.
