Obituary for Dorothy Catherine Driscoll

Dorothy "Dottie" C. Driscoll, age 72 of Littleton. Beloved wife of Cornelius "Neal" Driscoll. Loving mother of Catherine Adian, Neal, Kristen, Michael, and Matthew (Cheryl) Driscoll. Dear nana of Carrissa, Kianna, and Brion Adian, and Kayla, Euan, and Emsley Driscoll. Sister of Mary Lydon. Great nana of Colby Allen. Also survived by numerous family and friends.

Dottie married the love of her life on Sept., 1965 at age 23. From that time on, they were known as Neal and Dottie never was one mentioned without the other. Together they had five children, six grandchildren and a great-grandson.

Dottie had many jobs over her lifetime, but the ones that she loved the most were working with children. Dottie loved all kids! She ran her own childcare from her home both in South Boston and in Golden Colorado. Later she worked at Jordan Alexander in the infant room.
Dottie loved her hobbies. She loved to make crafts of all kind, but Christmas crafts were her specialty. She also loved to knit and crochet. There are so many families that are the proud owners of her baby sweater sets. She loved making them as much as she loved gifting them.
Dottie and Neal’s house was never quiet; it was the hang out for all of their kids’ friends over the year.
When it became apparent that she wouldn’t make it, a post on Facebook that asked for “Dottieisms” and stories about Dottie; immediately stories started pouring in.
One story that really encapsulates Dottie is as follows…Your house on E. 4th St., was always a sea of kids. Your mom watched my daughter, Caitlin, for me a couple of days a week, and made this only child, (at the time), feel like part of the big Driscoll clan. We still have the Santa made out of a bleach container that gets hung with fond memories each year! Cherish the time you have left with her and draw comfort from the memories of all the people she impacted in her life!

Dottie was loved by everyone who ever met her. Dottie will be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to have known her.
