Doris Glover Obituary

FREEPORT: Doris E Small Glover (formerly Hilton) – 89, passed away peacefully, surrounded
by many of her family members.
She was born December 10,1934 to William and Eleanor (Tripp) Small. When Doris was 3
years old, her father died. She was raised by her mother and stepdad, Orrin Witham (whom
she considered to be her dad). She attended Raymond schools and after moving to
Yarmouth, she attended North Yarmouth Academy. In 1951, she married Frank Hilton Jr.
Together, they had six children. Life had its ups and downs but through it all, Doris focused on
raising her children.  Doris had a huge heart with enough love to share with her very large
family and circle of friends. She enjoyed family gatherings, the annual Clam Festival, Country
music and taking long rides with no set destination. She baked the best biscuits in town and
never hesitated to make them, even on short notice.
In 1987, she married Ronald G Glover and they shared 25 happy years together, until his
death in 2012. They had so much fun camping, going out to eat and visiting a never-ending
list of family and friends. She worked at Health-tex in Portland for many years and at the
Sheraton Motel in Portsmouth, N.H.
In October 2018, Doris went to live at The Hawthorne House, the same facility her Mom lived
at until her death in 1982. She enjoyed her time there, making many friends and chatting (aka
bragging) about her family with the nurses. She enjoyed all the activities she got to take part
in, especially the bowling and the much competitive game of Bingo.
Surviving are her children:
Frank Hilton III (Gladys) of Yarmouth, Harold Hilton (Joyce) of Greenville, Everett Hilton
(Melody) of Freeport, Bertha Hilton of Brunswick, Nancy Sharp of Durham, Linda Smith of
Freeport, and Kenny Glover (Carol) of Plaistow, NH, 18 grandchildren, 32 great grandchildren
and 6 great, great grandchildren. Doris was very proud of each one of her children and
grandchildren’s accomplishments, no matter how big or small. 
Doris’ family would like to thank the staff at Hawthorne House in Freeport and the staff from
Compasses Hospice. The exceptional care they gave her did not go unnoticed. She was
treated with love, dignity, and compassion, never hesitating to go above and beyond, to make
her or a member of her family comfortable.
