Obituary

Dorothy “Dottie” Dimmitt Owen, 82, passed away peacefully on September 6, 2019 at her home.

Born in St. Albans, Queens on March 7, 1937, she was the daughter of the late William A. and Margaret (Molinaro Jones) Dimmitt. She attended school in Queens and later moved to Brentwood, Long Island. She met her love, Allen D. Owen, in 1956 and they were married on October 11, 1958 at St. Anne’s Roman Catholic Church in Brentwood. They later moved to Poughkeepsie and settled in Wappingers Falls.

Dottie worked as a front-end supervisor at Bradlees and as a resource teacher’s aide for 10 years with the Wappingers Central School District at Gayhead Elementary School with Carol Shufelt. She was a member of DCPA, enjoyed target shooting, and earned an expert rating. She loved to cook and learned to make a great apple pie and zucchini cake. She loved Christmas and the house would be filled with wonderful baking aromas including egg nog cake. She also enjoyed reading and doing crossword puzzles and jumble cryptograms. She always believed that her family was her greatest achievement. She loved people and had many friends.

Dottie is survived by her children and their spouses, Arlene Owen, Dawn and David Montfort, Bill and Stacey (Card) Owen, and Shawn Owen; her grandchildren Adam Montfort, Daniel Montfort, Corey Owen and his fiancé Amber Densdowich, Trevor Owen and Rachel Owen; her great-granddaughter Aubrey Owen; her sister-in-law Sandra Eaton; and many nieces, nephews and extended family members and friends including Alfred Rabasco.

In addition to her parents, Dottie was predeceased by her beloved husband, Allen Owen, in 2014; her brothers William A. Dimmitt and Frank Dimmitt; her sister-in-law, Harriett Dimmitt; and her grandson Michael Rodriguez in 1990.

The Owen Family would like to thank Dr. Mark Foster and his staff for the love and comfort given to their Mom and her family.

Calling hours will be held on Monday from 2-4 and 7-9pm at the McHoul Funeral Home, Inc., 895 Route 82, Hopewell Junction. The Funeral Service will be held on Tuesday at 11am at the Funeral Home followed by interment in St. Denis Cemetery.

Memorial donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Please visit Dottie’s Book of Memories at www.mchoulfuneralhome.com.

My fondest memories of Aunt Dot are her infectious smile and hugs. Lots and lots of hugs when we arrived, while we were visiting and when we left. We always received the warmest most generous welcome filled with love and joy. Aunt Dot and Uncle Al shared an incredible love of life with each other, all of their kids and grandkids and with so many others. Mom, Dad and I always felt big love during the many years we drove to Florida to visit with grandparents and had a chance to visit with all of you. Blessings to all of you-Arlene, Billy, Dawn and Shawn. Love, Georgie

Bill and I are deeply saddened by Dottie's passing. She was a remarkable woman. We would all like to be the great self-taught cook that she was. She managed to teach herself how to cook game birds , animals and fish. She truly enjoyed family life and was a dedicated mother and wife.

We are sure she is in a happy place with her beloved husband Al and they are smiling and glad to be reunited.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your wonderful Mother Dorothy. Mrs. Owen was a dear and lasting friend to Susan Watson, my Mother. Dottie and Sue would have wonderful visits always filled with great laughter and fantastic food at the Owen family table. I always enjoyed being lost in the loving arms of your Mother when ever she gave me one of her wonder hugs. Here's to Dottie and Sue are having wonderful talks again looking down upon thier famlies with great pride. My Deepest Sympathy to you Arlene, Dawn, Bill and Sean and your entire family.
