Dorothy M. (Peck) Guilmain, 86, passed away March 15, 2022 at Life Care Center of Wilbraham surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Burlington, Vermont on April 8, 1935 to the late Frederick and Lillian (Katon) Peck. She worked for many years as a kitchen worker at the Holyoke Soldiers’ Home. She was a faithful communicant of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Church in Westfield. Dorothy was a member of the 16 Acres Seniors, the Springfield Hobby Club where she enjoyed line dancing for 25 years and she taught senior swimming at the Springfield YMCA. She was also a member of the Hampden Village Association of Westfield. Family dinners, playing cards, especially gin rummy, and long Sunday car rides were favorite pastimes. However, Dorothy’s greatest joy was the love of her family and friends. She was a warm and welcoming person who always made others feel like her own family.
