Doris (Huff) Wilson
Doris Wilson of Ipswich passed away on November
17, 2020 following a massive stroke. She would have been 100 years old in
January. She was the wife of the late Angus ‘Bud’ Wilson.
Doris was born and grew up in Akron OH where she
met and married her husband.
Shortly afterwards, they settled in
Wayland, where they raised their daughters and Doris enjoyed being active
in many community organizations. They made the move to Ipswich in 1980
after building a summer home there in the 1970’s.
Doris loved Ipswich and its history and
was active as a tour guide in several historic house museums.
She and Bud enjoyed their retirement
years with winters in Seminole Florida and frequent road trips around New
England and across the county with friends and relatives. After Bud passed
away, she continued to enjoy living independently, taking day trips with
friends, and looking after the seaside home she loved.
Energetic and always ready for adventure, Doris
will be remembered for her positive outlook, her genuine interest in
others, and her kindness and compassion.

up with current events.
She loved lobster, Boston Symphony
Orchestra concerts, and colorful shoes.
While tolerant and agreeable regarding
most things, Doris disliked dandelions intensely and would wage battle
annually against those in her yard.

her longevity to being active, eating well and staying mentally
