KOLINSKY, Doris (Churchill) – Passed peacefully away in her sleep on August 12, 2012, at Riverside Regional Medical Center, Newport News, VA., Doris (Churchill) Kolinsky, aged 73, after a long and determined battle with emphysema.
A native Newfoundlander, Doris was the daughter of Harry and Lydia Churchill of Portugal Cove. She moved to the United States on Valentine’s Day, 1960, with two of her aunts, and there met her loving husband of 50 years Joseph Kolinsky. They raised two daughters in the Tidewater area of Virginia, living both in Hampton, and later Newport News. Sherri and husband Steve Palopoli live in Allentown, PA, while Robin and husband Larry Ingels reside in Chesapeake, VA. Doris and Joe were also blessed with five grandchildren, Stephen, Nick, Brittany, Jessica and Tara. They all are left with a lifetime of wonderful memories.
Doris is predeceased by her parents, as well as her brother William (Bill) Churchill, sister-in-law Lillian Churchill, and her Aunt Ruby Adkins, with whom she had moved to the U.S.
In addition to her immediate family, Doris is sadly missed and fondly remembered by a wide circle of family and friends throughout North America, including her brother's children, Craig (Yvonne) Churchill of Gander, Heather Churchill of St. John’s and Trent Churchill of Bridgewater, N.S., as well as Aunt Betsy D’Arca and husband Steve of Dana Point, CA.
