Dottie Yeadon Obituary, Death – We were astonished and saddened to read about Dottie Bartlett Yeadon’s passing because she was such a well-liked resident of Burlington. We will miss her greatly. Because Dottie and I worked together for a number of years during the Burlington Fourth of July Parade, I had the opportunity to become well acquainted with her through those experiences. Dottie Bartlett Yeadon, a well-liked former Burlington bus driver, passed away at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in the early morning hours of Monday, December 5 while her four children were by her side. She was a well-known figure in the community and will be greatly missed.
She had been a patient there for a considerable amount of time. Kylee Marie, Dottie’s granddaughter, wrote a heartfelt statement on Facebook in which she broke the news to her friends and family that her grandmother had gone away. We wanted to let all of our friends and family know that our dearly loved Dottie Bartlett Yeadon has passed away, and it is with the heaviest of hearts that we share this news with you.
Despite the fact that she had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in 2018, her passing came as a complete shock to everyone. Her recent fall caused a significant hemorrhage in her brain, which ultimately led to her death away. Despite the fact that the harsh cancer treatments she endured for four years caused her a great amount of bodily and mental agony, she never lost up hope. In the Lahey Clinic, where she was a patient, she passed away peacefully at 1:30 in the morning with her four children by her side. She has, at last, gotten some relief from the misery and suffering that she has been going through for so long. “services will be sorted and uploaded over the following couple of days,” as said in the post that was posted on Facebook.
From the bottom of our hearts, we are unable to say how grateful we are to everyone who loved and cared for her, prayed for her, and checked on her. We cannot describe how much we appreciate all of you. She persisted in her struggle right up until the very end because you people played a huge role in the reason why she did so. Following Dottie’s demise, the Burlington Athletic Boosters also took to Facebook to express their deepest sympathies to the community at large.
The Yeadon family expressed their sadness by saying, “It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our much adored “Bus 7″ Dottie Yeadon.” Dottie has had a significant influence on the lives of a huge number of children and families as a result of her empathy, compassion, and genuine concern for the well-being of others. Dottie has been acknowledged for all of the hard work that she has put in since 2010 by being admitted into the BHS Sports Hall of Fame. This honor is bestowed upon her because of the entire and total dedication that she has showed toward our student athletes. We are thankful to you, Dottie, for the enormous differences you have brought about in the lives of a great number of other people. You will remain in our memories and our hearts for all time.
The entirety of the Burlington community came together in 2018, as evidenced by the coverage on BNEWS, to support Dottie during her battle against cancer. Dottie has been recognized as the “Outstanding Citizen” of the Town of Burlington at the 4th of July Parade in 2018, in addition to the many other distinctions that she has received. Dottie was awarded the title of “Unsung Hero” by the Rotary Club of Burlington in November of 2018, in recognition of all of the work that she has done throughout the years to better the town of Burlington.
