Doris (Gates) Turcotte, 89, of Bloomfield, formerly of Windsor, beloved wife of the late Howard E. Turcotte, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 22, 2017. Born in Hartford to the late Laurance and Margaret (Kelley) Gates, she was raised in Hartford, graduating from Weaver High School in 1945, and lived most of her life in Windsor. Doris was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church in Windsor. She loved spending time with her family and her many friends from working in the office at Windsor High School. She had a variety of interests and hobbies, including writing poetry, decorating cakes and taking long walks. She was an avid camper who enjoyed traveling, and she loved to sing and dance, once winning a dance contest with her late husband. A loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend, she will be dearly missed. Doris is survived by her son, Douglas Turcotte and his wife Susan (Lasota) of Granby; her daughter, Deborah Hodge and her husband Jim of Middletown, NJ; her sisters, Margaret Farrell of Wilson and Jeanne Jacobson of Coventry; and her grandchildren, Audrey and Jeffrey Turcotte. A memorial service will be held at 11 AM Saturday, April 29 at the Carmon Funeral Home, 807 Bloomfield Ave, Windsor followed by burial in Windsor Veterans Memorial Cemetery. Her family will receive friends prior to the service on Saturday from 10:30 AM to 11 AM.
