Dorothy Fields Tompkins
February 8, 1912 - January 28, 2014
Dorothy Fields Tompkins died January 28, 2014 at her home at The Pines in Ossining, NY. She was born February 8, 1912 to William J. and Sarah Burdick Fields. She was a lifelong Ossining resident until moving to Somers in 1990, after the death of her husband, Theodore S. Tompkins, whom she married in 1938. In 2004, she returned to Ossining.
Ms. Tompkins graduated from Miss Fuller’s Ossining School For Girls in 1930 and Miss Conklin’s Secretarial School in NYC in 1931. She worked for over forty-five years in a series of positions with a business publishing firm, ending as administrative assistant to the publisher of Hotel and Restaurants International, a property of Cahners Publishing Co. and Reed Publishing USA.
Dorothy was an active parishioner of both the original St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in downtown Ossining and then St. Paul’s on the Hill, where the church moved in 1959. She was a member of the building committee for the new church sanctuary and became the first female Vestry member, later to serve as Senior Warden. She was a former member of the choir and the altar guild and was involved in the start of the current Lantern Shop, where she continued to share her talents until the age of 101. Her love of and dedication to St. Paul’s over many years was extraordinary and she will be greatly missed by her “church family” as well as her husband’s devoted family and her many friends.
A memorial service will be held March 29, 2014, 11 AM, at St. Paul’s on the Hill, 40 Ganung Drive, Ossining, NY 10562.
Contributions in her memory can be made to St. Paul’s on-the-Hill Endowment Fund.
