Obituary of Dorothy Ann Beayon

Dot Beayon, 85, a mother and a grandmother passed away in her home early in the morning of July 27th, 2020. Dorothy spent her long life as the matriarch of her large and loving family. While she could be known by many different names Dorothy, Dot, Dottie, none made her prouder than the adored titles of Mom and Gram. Born in Cambridge, New York on August 4th, 1934 Dorothy began and ended her life devoted to caring for, and fiercely loving her family. She deeply believed in the values of hard work which she put to the test at her careers at both Asgrow Seeds and Mallinckrodt, and her many other odd jobs she worked to make financial ends meet for her children. Her greatest joy in life were her grandchildren. She was steadfast in her mission to watch her 27 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and her 1 great-great grandchild grow and thrive in her glowing light. As her children and grandchildren grew into adults, she spent her spare time with her husband Dick on long car rides. She enjoyed the many seasons the northeast had to offer and watching what nature does to the landscapes as time passes. Her passion for watching things grow did not end with her family. She genuinely enjoyed the daily task of tending to her collection of plants and the affection they all took to flourish. The task of caring for all the things she loved she leaves for Dick with confidence. Dottie is predeceased by both of her parents, Matthew and Alice Carroll, brother Tommy Carroll, sisters June Norton and Arlene Brayson, daughter Thalia Beayon, and son David Beayon. She will be missed and celebrated by her family including her husband Richard Beayon of Greenwich, sister Gladys Blanchard, brother William Caroll, her children Nancy (Frank) Munger of Gansevoort, Larry (Lynn) Gardephe of Pennsylvania, Brenda (Tony Perrotta) Peets of Hoosick Falls, Carolee (Kevin) Brockway of Greenwich, Donna Barrow of Greenwich, Rick Beayon of Vermont, Dan (Tina) Hall of Maryland, and Ted Beayon of Maine. A celebration of her life will be held at 2pm on Friday, July 31, 2020 at the home of her daughter Carolee located at 57 Moorhouse Lane, Greenwich, NY, 12834 with the Rev. Laura Mitchell officiating. Donation’s in her memory may be made to Comfort Food Community in Greenwich. Online condolences and messages to the family may be made at
