LEBANON, N.H. — Wendy A. Dubuque, 65, died suddenly Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018, at Concord Hospital following an unusual chain of medical events. After a courageous battle she died peacefully surrounded by her loving family.

Wendy was born in Miami Beach, Fla., on June 30, 1953, daughter of Roy and Elizabeth (Patch) Wilkinson. She graduated in 1971 from Middlebury Union High School. A proud daughter of a Marine Family, she spent her elementary school years in bases along the east coast.

Her professional career started at the New England Telephone Company (NET) as a switchboard operator in Middlebury, Vt. Her career continued in Burlington and White River Jct., Vt. It was during her time with NET in White River Jct. that she met and fell in love with Ronald Dubuque. They were married in Middlebury on June 19, 1976. They settled in Ronald’s hometown of Lebanon, N.H., where they raised two sons, Christopher and Derek.

Wendy later went into the insurance field, serving the Upper Valley for their personal home and auto insurance needs with great knowledge, professionalism, love, and respect. She was also a member of the First Baptist Church of Lebanon, where she served on many boards and committees. Together with her church family she was actively involved in the care and concern of the community.

Wendy had many interests including aircraft, birds, cats, photography and crafting. She cherished spending time with her family. Wendy herself wrote “From the time I was a little girl, I had a dream as an adult I would rent a place on the lake for one week in the summer to enjoy time with my family.” For the last 17 years “this dream became reality” as she shared annual summer vacations with her family on Lake Dunmore, Lake St. Catherine, and for the last 12 years on Perch Pond in Benson, Vt. Of these, Perch Pond was her favorite. She called it “a piece of heaven found on earth.”

Wendy is survived by her husband of 42 years Ronald Dubuque of Lebanon; two sons, Christopher and his wife Tammi, and Derek and his wife Karisa; two grandchildren Ian and Teresa; brother-in-law Jon and his wife Darlene; mother-in-law Lois; her parents Roy and Elizabeth Wilkinson of East Middlebury, Vt.; her brothers Alan Wilkinson and his wife Deb of New Haven, Vt. and Barry Wilkinson and his wife Barb of Rutland, Vt.; aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews, and her beloved cat Amber.

She was predeceased by her father-in-law Francis Dubuque.

Calling hours were held Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Ricker Funeral Home in Lebanon, N.H. from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. with a memorial service immediately following. In lieu of flowers send donations to Upper Valley Humane Society 300 Old Route 10, Enfield, NH 03748.◊
