She belonged to the Stella Chapter of The Order of the Eastern Star and was an enthusiastic member of the Limestone Garden Club in her early days. She also worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a short period of time. A lifelong resident of Limestone, Dora was an avid Bridge player and up until the last couple of years, enjoyed her weekly games with a local bridge club. She maintained a sense of humor throughout her later years and was able to remain in her family home in Limestone until last summer, thanks to the generous support of the community, friends and neighbors and especially her nieces, Barbara and Jane. She is predeceased by five brothers, Warren, Linwood, Philip, Gerald and Josiah; her husband of many years, Donald Atwater; and her son, Peter Atwater. She is survived by one son, Roger; and six grandchildren, Laurie Atwater, Andrea Atwater, Rebecca Pratt, John Atwater, Jodie Stewart and David Atwater; and eight great-grandchildren.
