This is a pin I got from Dot Mithee’s funeral today from her personal collection. The spider has always attracted me. Weaving the web of it’s existence.
Dot’s legacy is special. Great friends like my mother in law Dottie Maheux. A great spirit. And wonderful gifts to Hallowell and her community. She died last Tuesday, June 12, 2012.
She was one of the founding members of the Hallowell Food Bank in 1988 and worked there for many years including as president and treasurer. She worked and volunteered for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and Catholic Charities. Was active in local Democratic politics and served as a Hallowell city counselor. She even won the Hallowell Spirit of America Award on several occasions, and eventually became president of the foundation.
She was a wonderful and amazing spirit. Her smile and laughter just brightened a room. She is loved and missed by all who knew her.
May we all weave such a web.
