OBITUARY:

Dorothy E. (Boutwell) Kinosky, a lifelong resident of Woburn, passed away quietly early Tuesday morning, January 29th, at the Woburn Nursing Center. The beloved wife of the late Edward E. Kinosky, she was ninety-eight years of age.

Born in Woburn on July 13, 1909, Dorothy was the daughter of the late Percy and Margaret (Tenney) Boutwell. She attended the Woburn Public Schools and was a graduate of Woburn High School. Following high school Mrs. Kinosky went to work at Schrafft’s Company where she worked for many years. In 1930, she married her sweetheart Ed, to whom she was devoted for forty-six years, and together they raised three daughters. Mrs Kinosky also worked at Marion’s Dress Shop on Main Street in downtown Woburn. She worked for thirty-seven years, assisting the ladies of Woburn and other communities in choosing the most proper attire for that perfect event. Mrs. Kinosky was an avid shopper, if it was not something for herself then it was surprise for someone else in the family. After her daughters married, she assisted them with their children, providing babysitting services, doing the groceries or sharing a cup of tea. She was a very warm and very caring person, always there for her family and friends.

Following her retirement from Marion’s Dress Shop, she decided to work as a Home Health Aide, a position to which she devoted herself for several years in continuing to help others. Bingo was a time that Mrs. Kinosky set aside for herself and would thoroughly enjoy the games with her friends and often times family on a weekly basis. She was not really a traveler, but on one occasion she traveled to San Fransisco and had a marvelous time, but always felt that there was no place better than home.

In addition to her husband, Mrs. Kinosky was predeceased by her sister, Mary Grey, and brothers, Daniel, Branville and Clifford Boutwell, and her son-in-law, Thomas Butler.

She is lovingly survived by her daughters, Shirley Butler of Woburn, Eileen Gallagher and her husband Eric of Wilmingtn, and Beverly Sweet and her husband Harold of Woburn, seven grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and many loving nieces and nephews.

A Funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn on Friday, February 1st, at 9 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Joseph’s Church, 100 Washington Street, Woburn at 10. Interment will follow in Calvary Cemetery, Woburn.

Calling hours will be held at the funeral home on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m.

Donations may be made to the St. Jude Childrens Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis TN 38105-1942.
