You left us on Feb. 26, 2016.
Known as "Dot," you were born January 10th, 1918, in Palmerton, Pa. You married our father, Norm Wilkinson and celebrated your 50th anniversary June 12, 1990.
Mother, our lives and so many others were enriched by your presence. It was a life well lived; your quiet strength and love of God; your love of music and sharing it with others; your poetry; your swimming; entertaining us with your natural talent as a storyteller dressed as Aunt Wilhelmina Pumpernickel or as Shirley Temple singing "Good Ship Lollipop"; whistling; dancing; sharing your cookie plates; your wonderful meals and never letting anyone go home hungry.
So many memories keep you in our thoughts and hearts forever. We will all miss you, but we know your life continues on with new adventures.
With Love and Hugs,
Dot is survived by her daughter, Nancy Rogers, son-in-law, Lonnie and their children, Shelly and Keith; daughter, Betsy Rogers, son-in-law, Dannie and their daughter, Tracy; daughter, Norma Roberts; son, Bud Wilkinson, daughter-in-law, Rebecca and their children, Calee and Troy; sister, Catherine Mease; and great-grandchildren, Kyle and Kelsa Frary, Brandon and Bailey Rogers, and Damian and Dylan Trow; as well as her extended family of stepchildren; nieces and nephews; and many, many caring friends.
She was preceded in death by her grandson, Michael Roberts; husbands, Norm Wilkinson, Max Coffman and Don Clay; and sisters, Charlotte Fenstermacher and Helen Baier.
A celebration of Dot's life will be held at a future date to be announced.
