Dorothy "Dot" Pearl Labbe
Loved Caring for Others

Laconia-----Dorothy “Dot” P. (Dion) Labbe, 87, passed away peacefully at St. Francis Rehabilitation and Nursing Center on Monday, March 29, 2010.

Dot was born in Berlin, New Hampshire on May 27, 1922 to Oscar D. and Lucetta Pearl (Archibald) Dion of Berlin, New Hampshire. Dot was a resident of the Lakes Region for 56 years, moving here in 1954 from Conway, N.H. After moving to Laconia, she worked for Lee’s Cut Rate, a retail establishment where she developed a passion for serving others. In future years, she spent time waiting on customers at the Busy Corner Store and, after retiring from Vernitron Corporation, finished her working career at Osco Drug Store in Gilford.

Dot was known as a hard working woman who kept a spotless home and prided herself on serving others in greater need. She loved her family, her pets, dining out, golfing, crocheting and working. Always on the go, she would extend herself to helping others, making sure their basic needs were met.

She is survived by her three children, Roland Robichaud and his wife, Gloria, of Sanbornton, Brenda Carter of Laconia and Alan Robichaud and his wife, Deborah, of Belmont, and her step son, Michael Labbe, and his wife, Sandy, of Loudon.
