Newtonville – Dorothy Ruth McEvoy Warwick, 93, passed away peacefully on Monday evening, February 5, 2018. Born in Newton, MA on November 24, 1924, she was the daughter of the late Howard and Ruth McEvoy.
Dot was born and raised in the suburbs of Boston. It was there that she met and married her high school sweetheart, the late Robert H. Warwick. Together, they moved from Massachusetts to the Latham area over 60 years ago. Once they were settled into Latham, Dot worked as an executive secretary for Standard Rosenbaum for over 30 years. She also volunteered often, including in the auxiliary at Albany Memorial Hospital, working in the gift shop and at the front desk, and as a good will ambassador at Albany International Airport. She was a communicant of Newtonville United Methodist Church and took pride in being the church’s second-oldest living member. When not at work or volunteering her time, Dot was an avid bridge player and dog-lover. She also loved spending time with her best friend and neighbor, the late Jane Cornell.
Dot is survived by her 4 daughters; Marsha (Shawn) Carr of Wilmington, NC, Christine Borst of Syracuse, Cynthia (Bob) Farrelly of Latham, and Janice (Stanley) Peak of Latham, her siblings; Eleanor (late Arthur) Budd of Falls Church, VA, Bob (Sandy Conway) McEvoy of Halifax, MA, and William (Deen) McEvoy of Hudson, MA, and by 10 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
A funeral service will be held Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 10 AM at the Newtonville United Methodist Church. Interment will take place at a later date in Glen Valley Cemetery, Barre, MA.
