Litchfield - Dorothy “Dot” Wilusz, age 94, passed away on September 8, 2020
surrounded by her family. She was the spouse of Anthony Wilusz who passed on
in 2012.
Born on May 5, 1926, Dorothy was the daughter of the late Joseph Dziedzic and
Mary (Kus) Dziedzic.
Dorothy was a person of many talents. She enjoyed baking breads and pies which
won many ribbons at area fairs. The family especially loved her Christmas time
pierogis, potato salad, and poppy seed bread. Her colorful crocheted afghans are
not only decorative but keep family members warm. In her younger years Dot
created beautiful dresses for her daughters. For many years Dot raised a garden,
and enjoyed picking blueberries. She enjoyed traveling around the state with her
husband to square dance. Ever curious, Dorothy enjoyed trips out to the western
US and reading about foreign countries and nature. Even in her later years when
her eyesight was diminishing, Dot painted colorful nature scenes.
But most importantly, Dorothy loved her family and was the glue that held the
family together. Whether singing Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and making Christmas
plays, telling stories of her childhood, making Halloween parties, or taking care of
her grandchildren, and great grandchildren, Dorothy’s laughter and love was ever
present and offered whole heartedly. This love even was shared with the over 30
foster children with whom Dorothy shared her home.
Dorothy is survived by three sons, Stephen Wilusz of Litchfield, Paul Wilusz of
Manchester, and Tony Wilusz and his spouse Debra A. Brown of Torrington. Her
surviving daughters are Marie Wilusz, Litchfield, and Tina Wilusz and her husband,
Deryk Jones of New Orleans; grandchildren Sarai Gutierrez and spouse Carlos,
Leah Brown-Wilusz and spouse Eric Swanson, Phil B. Wilusz and spouse Kim,
Meshya Jones, Cameryn Jones, Derek Jones, and James Ellis; great grandchildren
Liliana Gutierrez, William Gutierrez, and Elle Wilusz.
Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to
the hospice program of Foothills Visiting Nurses Association, 32 Union Street,
Winsted, CT 06098.
