She was born June 28, 1922, in Stockton Springs, the daughter of Alvah and Junita (Page) Dunham. She enjoyed knitting, cooking and painting rocks for her rock garden, which people thought were flowers.

She is survived by two daughters Judith A. Oxton and Sandra F. Koehler, grandchildren Wendy (Oxton) Chaston and husband Roy, Herbert Oxton Jr. and wife Lucy, Penny D. Oxton, Tammy Bragdon, Lisa Carroll and husband Chris, Scott Bragdon and companion Carol Carver, great-grandchildren Darren Ward, Benjamin Chaston and wife Tiffany, Andrea Chaston, Jonathan Oxton and companion Eileen Roberts, Aaron Oxton, Shane Oxton, Alex Carver, Kaylee Bragdon and Jayden Bragdon, and one niece Andrea Dunphy. She will be missed by family and good friends Margaret and Clarence Nickerson.
