Obituary of Mary Wilkinson
Hilton - Mary "Gerry" Wilkinson passed away on September 2, 2023 at the age of 93. She was predeceased by her husband, Richard; her son, Rick Wilkinson; her beloved grandson, Chandler Dolan; and her siblings. She is survived by her children, Cathy (Clyde) Lundy, Eileen Santamour, Lisa (Bruce) Teall, Diane Gaylord (Danny Reed), and Christine (Alan) Fitzsimmons; her grandchildren, Kristin Galetta (Alex Bermudez), Danielle Lundy (Kevin McEntee), Michael (Amber) Rivera, Jackie Hilton (Allan Rathbun), Stefanie Rivera (Ryan Curry), Jenny (Roxy) Denton, Beth Nichols (Jesse Wood), Dan Teall, Megan (Chris) Dolan, Katie (Marc) Essenlohr, Dean Gaylord (Quintin Smith), Rachel (Adam) Stoneham, Darren Stanford (Brittany Grossman), Molly Wilkinson; her 16 great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, and friends, including Judy, Irene, Robin, Margaret, Nadine, and Mary Ellen (her Steel Magnolias). Also, dear life-long friends, Ginny Watkins and Margie Graham.
Mary was a devout member of the Catholic Church. She loved music and singing and played the piano, whenever and wherever she could, to the delight of friends and strangers alike. Her friends, staff, and "adopted family" at St. Ann's will surely miss her spontaneous piano concerts. She loved euchre and hated bingo but did both in her spare time because that was her "job" on the 6th floor of St. Ann's.
A Funeral Mass will take place on Friday, September 22nd at 11am at St. Ann's Chapel, 1500 Portland Ave., Rochester, NY 14621. A brief graveside service will be held immediately following at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, 6881 E. Canal Rd., Brockport, NY 14420.
Memorial Contributions may be made to the Sisters of St. Joseph, 150 French Rd., Rochester, NY 14618, an organization Mary loved and supported her entire life. Click on the charity name to link directly to the donation website.
