June 28, 1928 – January 4, 2019
NORWICH - Dolores Hutchins Wilkinson born June 28, 1928 in Montville, CT to Leonard and Hazel Hutchins went home to meet the Lord on January 4, 2019 at 26 Main Street, Central Village, CT.
She is survived by three sisters, Beverly Gunn of Arizona, Marie Urick of Ohio, and Barbara Finegan of Florida. Also by a sister in law Billy Ann Hutchins of Rhode Island.
Dolores graduated from Fitch High School. On June 30, 1946, Dolores married Richard Wilkinson (better known as Dick and Dodie) and made their home in North Stonington where four daughters were born, Nancy, Janet, Cheryl, And Donna.
Dodie went to work at the school serving lunch so she could keep an eye on the girls and boy did she.
After moving to Shady Harbour, Dodie began her career at Friendly’s in Westerly from 1968, and retiring in 1992. Florida was her residence for the past 19 years, where she enjoyed playing mahjong and bingo, and yard sales, but mostly time spent with friends and family.
She was caregiver to Dick for 5 years until he went home to be with the Lord in 2011.
Dodie was predeceased by two daughters, both of Florida, Nancy Browning and Cheryl Campbell, wife on Neil Campbell. Her other two daughters reside in Connecticut with their husbands, Janet and Will Larkin, and Donna and Mark Fallon. Dodie had 9 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren and will be missed by all.
A celebration of life will be at 2nd Baptist Church, Route 49, North Stonington, on Saturday January 12th at 1:00.
