  • Notes 
    • Lois attended Cushing Academy in Ashburnham, Mass. until she fell ill with a mastoid infection that nearly ended her life. Enjoyed travel, skiing, painting and reading and at one point flying with Fred Dunn. After Fred's death in a flying accident she married William E. Faulkner, Jr. of Keene, N.H. With "Bill" she traveled to Bermuda, Europe, and Central America, and after his death to Greece. She resides today near her sister-in-law, Ellie Sullivan Appleton, and her son, Peter Dunn, in Gorham, New Hampshire [1995].

      Update December, 2005: Lois is still living, but has been these past five years in a nursing facility, Merriman House, in North Conway, N.H.

      Update January 19, 2007: Mother died of complications of old age in North Conway.

      Keene Sentinel Obit:
      Lois (Appleton) Faulkner, 96, of Gorham, N.H died Friday, January 19 at Merriman House Nursing Home of Memorial Hospital in North Conway of infirmities of age.

      Mrs. Faulkner was born in Dublin, NH on Nov. 11, 1910, daughter of Arthur T Appleton and Alice Fox Appleton and attended Cushing Academy in Ashburnham, Massachusetts.

      She lovingly raised a family of three sons at the family farm in Dublin, NH, and later in Cranford, NJ and Houston, Texas. She returned to New Hampshire after her second husband’s death and built a new home in Dublin in 1970. For many years she lived in Keene with her sister, artist Janet Appleton Merrifield, and finally moved to Gorham, in the late 1980s.

      Lois had an adventurous spirit. She enjoyed flying in an open cockpit biplane with her first husband, and was a pioneer skier, braving Tuckerman’s Ravine on Mount Washington in the 1930s.

      She had a life-long interest in art, and her paintings memorialize her travels, especially to Europe and Central America. In later life she was a contributor to the town of Dublin Conservation Committee, a member of Great Books in Keene, and a member of the Gorham Women’s Club.

      Mrs. Faulkner was the widow first of Frederick Grant Dunn of Houlton, ME who died in 1934, and second of William E. Faulkner, Jr. of Keene, NH who died in 1967. She is survived by three sons: Peter G. Dunn of Chocorua, NH, William E Faulkner III of Nashua, NH, and Alaric (“Ric”) Faulkner of Winterport, ME, and a sister, Marilyn (Appleton) Bowden of Cottonwood, AZ. Also surviving are four grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.

      A celebration of her life will be held at the Appleton family farm in Dublin (now DelRossi’s Trattoria) later this spring at a date to be announced. - A. Faulkner

      I should have also noted that Mother was a founding member of the new Dublin Historical Society in 1986.
