Margaret F. (Wilson) Tompkins TEWKSBURY, Mass. — Margaret Faith (Wilson) Tompkins, age 87, of Tewksbury, and West Lebanon, New Hampshire, died peacefully on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, at the Judith Brogan Memory Care Unit of Cedar Hill Continuing Care in Windsor, Vermont. Born in Lowell, in February of 1932 to wholesale florist Charles Wilson and Mary (Bakewell) Wilson, she lived in her beloved Tewksbury for 86 years. She married Vaughn A. Tompkins Jr. at her home on Jan. 27, 1951. She attended Tewksbury schools and worked at Harvard University, Wang Laboratories, and for more than 25 years in the Tewksbury assessor’s office. Margaret was a loving wife, mother and grandmother first and foremost. She loved her family and friends, helping others, writing letters, and ice cream. Friends, even those she just met, were always welcomed into her home with open arms and her beautiful smile. She offered tea, company, and a sympathetic ear at her kitchen table. Beloved “Gram” leaves behind her husband of 68 years, Vaughn "Red;" her daughter, Margaret "Peg" DiBella and husband Al, of West Windsor, Vermont; son, Robert "Bob" Tompkins and wife Judith (Deveau), of Pittsford, Vermont; grandchildren Kenneth Tompkins (Lowansa Sprague) and great-grandson Vaughn, Collin Tompkins (Sarah Donnelly) and great-grandson Charles, Sarah DiBella Gurr (Michael) and Katherine DiBella Blackman (Colton); and brother, Charles Wilson, of Ogunquit, Maine. She was predeceased by her parents and brothers Lawrence "Larry" and Robert "Bob." A private family “Celebration of Life” will be held in Tewksbury. Special thanks to the staff at Cedar Hill for all the kindness shown and care given to “Miss Margaret.” In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or BAYADA Hospice.
