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.

Doreen R. Maynard, 85, passed away on Aug. 26. Born on Aug. 4, 1934, to William Preston Hirst and Ida L. Lockett-Swallow in England, Doreen traveled to America in 1962 and became a proud US citizen in 1968. She worked at the Madison VNA and Middlesex Homecare as a CNA until her retirement. Doreen was an avid knitter, loved watching the birds outside her window, and enjoying tea with her family and friends. Most of all, Doreen was a devoted mom, nana, and friend.
Doreen is predeceased by her parents, her husband Bruce Maynard, her sisters Edna and Margaret, and her brother Stanley. She will be greatly missed by her children Juris Rutkis, wife Bonnie of Westbrook; Sandy Voss, husband Bob of Clinton; and Mary Rose Masterson of Westbrook. Doreen leaves behind her beloved grandchildren Mark Hicks, Jr., (Lisa), Wendy Hicks, Amy Johnson (Creighton), Kimberly Cunningham (RJ), Tyler Masterson (Emily), Juris Rutkis, Jr., Ansis Rutkis (Ashley), and Bobby Rutkis (Mary). She has 18 grandchildren with one on the way and 2 great-grandchildren. Doreen has a host of nieces and nephews in England who will miss her dearly.
The family would like to thank all of those who have helped with her care.
A Celebration of life will be held on Friday, Aug. 30 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Clinton Fire Department, located at 35 E. Main St., Clinton.
