She was a communicant of St. Michael Church in Pawcatuck and a member of the Stonington Community Center, the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center, and the Eastern Beagle Club. She was a loving and caring mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

Calling hours will be held in the funeral home today from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Interment will be in St. Michael Cemetery.


I also found the following obit for Florence Lockwood and I’m wondering if this is the Florence Lockwood that was the daughter of Dora Erbig and Harry Lockwood.  If you know, I’d love it if you could let me know if she was or wasn’t.
