Katherine A. Nuite DOVER-FOXCROFT - Katherine A. (Wingate) Nuite, 98, died peacefully April 5, 2006, with family members at her side. She was born Aug. 13, 1907, in Sebec, the daughter of George C. and Ida (Morgrage) Wingate. She graduated from Foxcroft Academy and the Maine School of Commerce in Auburn. After teaching commercial subjects at the Maine School of Commerce, Foxcroft Academy and Newport High School, she went to Washington D.C. in 1931, where she worked in the Interior Department.

She was a member of the Eastern Star, Susie Carr Chapter and served on the school board in Guilford.
