MANCHESTER -- Lucille Wilt Fay, 90, formerly of Dorset, died Saturday evening, Feb. 4, 2006, at Equinox Terrace in Manchester.

Mrs. Fay was born in Williamsburg, Pa., on Feb. 16, 1915, the daughter of Lloyd (Ted) Wilt and Verna Stultz. She received her education in Williamsburg, graduating from Williamsburg High School, class of 1932, and from Pennsylvania State University, class of 1936, earning a bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in French.

Mrs. Fay was a retired teacher, having taught English in Williamsburg in the 1930s and French at Burr and Burton Academy for more than 20 years. She continued to tutor French and English as a second language as recently as three years ago.

Mrs. Fay’s community service included many years as justice of the peace in Dorset. She performed numerous weddings. She also helped the local AARP chapter and volunteered at RSVP, the Dorset Historical Society, Southern Vermont Art Center, Dorset Playhouse, Manchester Chamber of Commerce and Equinox Terrace. She was an active participant at town meetings and regularly corresponded with local and state representatives.

Mrs. Fay was a parishioner of Zion Episcopal Church in Manchester and a member of the Dorset Field Club for over 50 years.

Mrs. Fay’s interests included bridge, crossword puzzles, the English language and grammar. She good naturedly corrected misusages. Hers was a life lived actively. She was a woman of unforgettable character - wise, insightful, witty, always the teacher. We will miss the essence of our dear Lucille.

She is survived by her son, Bruce Fay, and his wife, Lisa, and two grandchildren, Matthew and Jeffrey Fay, all of Rochester, N.Y. She was predeceased by her husband, John E. Fay, and son, Michael Fay.
