RUMFORD — Dorothy H. Hiscock, 102, a longtime resident of Livermore, passed away, Sunday, July 30, at Rumford Hospital.

She was born September 14, 1914, in Hartford, the daughter of Percy Gammon and Nelly (Thurlow) Gammon. She was the last surviving of 10 children. She was a 1933 graduate of Buckfield High School. In June 1933, she married Burton Hiscock; he passed away in 1993.

Dorothy devoted her life to her family, home and farm. She was very active with the 4-H Club and accompanied her grandchildren through the years while they showed their baby beef steers. Dorothy also enjoyed attending the horse races. Every day when she got out of bed, her motto was: “Now who can I help today?”

She is survived by her daughters, Sylvia Brophy and her husband, Richard, of Livermore, and Sandra Milano of Saugus, Massachusetts; sons, Sherman Hiscock and his wife, O’Tilley, of Arizona, Frank Hiscock and his wife, Sue, of Livermore; and Alvin Hiscock of Scarborough; 13 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; and many great-great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her parents; husband, Burton Hiscock; son, John Hiscock; and siblings, Carl, Ella, Alfred, Alfreda, Ada, John, Marshall, Clint and Roger.

The family would like to thank Pinnacle nursing home for the wonderful care they showed Dorothy during her time there.
