The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

Dianne Mott of Guilford passed peacefully on Monday, May 6. Daughter of the late Richard and Catherine Clair Burns Mott, she was born in Quincy, Massachusetts. She is survived by her sister Suzanne and brother-in-law Rene Brouillard; her nephews Claude, Christian, and Adam Brouillard; and by her beloved grand-niece, Claire.
She received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in modern romance languages from the University of Connecticut, and pursued further graduate studies in Spanish in Costa Rica. She taught French and Spanish at Addams Middle School in Guilford and Old Saybrook High School. She was much beloved by her students, as attested to by the hundreds of letters of gratitude received over the many years of her career. Dianne personified all that was honorable and great in the name “teacher.”
Dianne loved her family, friends, students, and all animals. Until recent years she was also a fine equestrienne. She loved music and was endowed with a remarkable mezzo-soprano voice.
A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated May 14 in St. Therese Church, Branford followed by burial in Westside Cemetery, Guilford. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the charity of one’s choice. Arrangements were in care of the Guilford Funeral Home.
