Warren - Dorothy M. (O'Keefe) Beaudry, 87, of Warren, passed away peacefully on Monday, December 11, 2023 at home.
She leaves her devoted son, Francis H. Beaudry III, her loving and caring daughter in-law Andrea Beaudry, her six loving and beautiful grandchildren, Sam, Jon, Nick, Liz, Ben, and Jill Beaudry, as well as two beautiful great-grandchildren, Aubree and Reagan. Dorothy also leaves behind many great relatives and friends. Dorothy was predeceased by her loving and caring husband, Francis H. Beaudry Jr. in 2021, a daughter, Maureen Beaudry and a son, Michael Beaudry, as well as a brother, Joseph O’Keefe along with his wife Marie H. (Valois) O’Keefe and a second brother Robert O’Keefe. She was born in Ware, daughter of the late Joseph E. and Antonia (Galary) O’Keefe.
After graduating high school Dorothy worked for many years in the Warren Pump Shop in Warren. Then, after meeting her husband Francis, of which they were together for 65 years, she left the Pump Shop and became a homemaker spending most of her working life caring for and raising all her beloved family and loving every bit of it.
Dorothy also called Dot or Dotsie was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to many. She enjoyed quilting, sewing, upholstering, and spending time with her beloved family and friends. She loved taking road trips around different towns near where she lived as well as walking in a nearby cemetery and taking road trips down to Cape Cod. Dotsie along with her husband Francis would always go to all the sporting events and games that their grandchildren played in, no matter where the location was. The two of them would drive to the different sporting events in their car, which at the time was a 4 door Burgundy Mercury Marquis and Dot and Francis would drive the car right up close to the field and open up the trunk of the car. Inside the trunk in a red and white cooler Dot would always make sure there was plenty of Stewart's soda and snacks for anyone and everyone to enjoy who happened to stop by. Dot and Francis also were known as unofficial score keepers of the different games that they attended. If anyone needed the score or to know what was happening at the game, they headed over to see both of them to find out, as they sat ring side enjoying every moment of the game watching their grandkids from the 4 door Burgundy Mercury Marquis.
Dot was a parishioner of St. Paul's Church in Warren, in earlier years. At the time Dot was a parishioner she was also a member of the Women’s Club of St. Paul’s Church and would help run the weekly BINGO also at St. Paul’s.
