Marilyn (‘Pat’ Patricia) (Gordon) Jewett, 92, died Saturday, November 21, 2020. She was born in Raymond, NH on March 1, 1928, the daughter of the late Andrew and Helen Gordon.

She enjoyed 47 years of marriage to the love of her life, Willis E. Jewett before he passed in 2010.

She is survived by: four children: John W. Burns and his wife Zondra of Virginia Beach VA; Nancy P. Morey of Hollis, NH; Keith A. Jewett and his wife Teresa of Hudson, NH; and Karen L. Ragle of Hampton, NH. Grandchildren: Benjamin Burns and his wife Karen; Brian Burns and his wife Kristin; Devin Morey and his wife Elena; Shannon Jewett; Cameron Jewett; and Great Grandchildren: Emmett and Carla. Her half sister: Eleanor Gonye.
Marilyn ‘Pat’ was predeceased by her sisters Helen Fifty and Shirley Garvin.

She attended public school in Derry, NH; graduated from UNH in 1961 with a Bachelor of Science degree which enabled her introduction to teaching in the Nashua School system. Later, she achieved her Masters degree in Special Education at the University of Lowell, MA in 1974.

Pat had a long history of service to her communities, whether it be her church, children’s activities, or Town of Litchfield.
For her church, Pat served as a Sunday school teacher, helped organize, BAKE, and serve at the Strawberry festivals. She organized the Litchfield Senior Citizens Group; prompted and assisted countless fundraisers.
For her children’s activities, it wasn’t limited to her own children’s 4H Clubs, Cub Scout Den Mother duties, but extended to other children in town, such as organizing town Halloween Parties, BAKING for assorted fundraisers, and Backpacks for Kids.

For the Town of Litchfield, she started in the Conservation Committee back in 1952. Her yearn to serve spanned decades and included assorted commissions such as Budget, Recycling, Nashua Regional Planning. Pat was the first woman to be elected to the Board of Selectmen which she served for 27 years. That position included other responsibilities such as promoting the Fourth of July Parades, Veterans Day Memorials, manning the Election polling places, and appointments such as the Town Welfare Chairman, and BOD for Community Council. She also discovered that she could BAKE her way to favors.

Everyone will remember Pat’s confident “Jewett can do it” attitude and mantra. In her free time, Pat enjoyed BAKING, painting, stockcar racing, and being involved with family and friends’ activities.

I knew Pat as a true advocate for the people and the town of Litchfield. She was tireless in her efforts to make Litchfield a better place to live. She was a true Hero and will be missed. May she rest in peace along with her beloved Willis.

My family first met Pat in the 1970s when my son Bob was in Special Needs at Bicentennial School in Special Needs. We very quickly became friends and have kept in touch since then. At that time no one knew anything about Autism and we all learned together. Bob met Karen a few years later when she was a Camp Counselor when Bob was at Camp. She let a lasting impression on Bob and when he learned of Pat's passing he immediately mentioned Keith and Karen. Pat and I would touch base every now and then by phone and she had been in my thoughts recently and I wanted to call but time went by and I didn't.
My thoughts and prayers and with all of you as she will be greatly missed by many.
Love to all of you, Cecile Boucher and Bob

Karen and Keith I am so sorry. Your mother was a strong woman. I will never forget how she looked out for me when my mother was sick. She took me to youth group Halloween so I wasn't there when they took her away for her last stay. Bet you didn't know she also visited my father after his wife died. She gave him all your father's old tool magazines. She was a special woman who did far more than some know. Lots of love Nancy (Shea)Marchand.

I remember Pat Jewett always moving fast around Bicentennial School. Always smiling and always being helpful.
In the days before Thanksgiving I remembered that I once borrowed a food mill from her for making applesauce. How that came to my mind now seems remarkable. I know she's at peace with little kids gathered around and others looking for direction!!!

Bob and I were saddened by the news of Pat's passing. We will remember her as a person who always had a smile on her face and a kind word or two whenever we were in her company. We admired her enthusiasm and endless energy. She was a person who liked to be involved and was committed to the many children she taught at Bicentennial School. Our sympathy and prayers are with her family.
