Doris R. Jewett
April 11, 1913 – December 10, 2013
Doris "Doad" Reynolds Jewett, of Lyme died on December 10, 2013, in Middletown.
She was born on April 11, 1913, in Lyme, the daughter of Donald and Katherine Reynolds.
Doad taught school in Lyme until her marriage to Charles S. Jewett in 1939. She lived nearly all her life in the house where she was born on Hamburg Cove. In 1996 she wrote a book for her grandchildren called "Things Remembered" about her adventures growing up there. She was happiest outside sailing, kayaking, skiing, biking and working in her garden. She also built furniture, painted, knit, e-mailed her family and could fix anything. Her daughters always said that she was a hard act to follow.
Doad is survived by her daughters Pat Jewett Andrews and her husband Andy of Phippsburg, ME; and Lynn Reynolds Jewett of Saco, ME; her grandchildren Meghan R. Longacre and her husband Josh and Courtney R. Adams and her husband Doug, all of Plainfield, NH; Gillian H. Andrews of Salem, MA; Thayer J.
