Doris Mullett

February 21, 1930January 27, 2019

Doris Thrasher Mullett, daughter of the late Chester and Evelyn Thrasher, born Feb. 21, 1930, lifelong resident of Keene, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by love Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019.

Growing up in the Depression era, Doris was naturally a very thrifty Yankee. One of her favorite things to do on a Saturday night was to pack up the kids, and anyone else who might be visiting, and go to the local auctions to bring home bargains and treasures. When the house began busting at the seams, she started to do weekly setups at local flea markets to sell the items she could bear to part with. And then, as many will fondly remember, she opened up her very own shop, Second Hand Rose’s, at the Cheshire Fairgrounds. Her shop helped many young families looking for good second hand clothes and furnishings and also became a regular stop for numerous local antique dealers looking for unique pieces. The biggest treasure in the shop, though, was Doris herself. She was a natural outgoing entertainer, with an incredibly quick wit. Always ready with a joke and always with a twinkle in her beautiful blue eyes. A visit with her always had people leaving with a trinket as well as a smile.

Doris was predeceased by her son, Scott Mullett; her brother, Harold Thrasher; and her sister Norma Kravette. Doris leaves her loving sister Shirley Paine of Connecticut;, her devoted sons, Dana Mullett and his wife, Maryann, of Fitzwilliam and Duane Mullett of Keene; grandchildren, Reid Mullett, Ryan Mullett and Emily Hendricks. Numerous adoring nieces and nephews and close friends will all miss her tremendously.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
