Kathleen J. Wilkinson, 59, lifelong resident of North Berwick, passed away at her home on October 2, 2021 after a period of failing health. 

She was born June 6, 1962 in Rochester, NH, the only child born to Ralph (Punky) and Patsy (Grover) Bragdon.  Kathy was a 1980 graduate of Noble High School in Berwick, then earning her CNA Certificate she began helping people at various nursing homes, including the North Berwick Nursing Home.

In 1984 she married Mark Wilkinson and raised their daughter Ashley in town.  Kathy was an avid Bruins, Celtics and Red Sox fan and season ticket holder for the Sanford Mainers. She enjoyed hiking local trails, camping and snowmobiling, collecting seashells and sea glass at the beach and attending shows at the Ogunquit Playhouse.  Kathy also loved to read and took great pride in her flower and vegetable gardens. She shared a special bond with her daughter, Ashley, and looked forward to their annual summer vacations on Vinalhaven.

Kathy was pre-deceased by her father, Ralph (Punky) Bragdon in 2018.  She will be sorely missed by her husband of 37 years, Mark Wilkinson, her daughter Ashley Wilkinson and mother, Patsy Bragdon, all of North Berwick; and her best friend forever, Beth (Boston) Smith of Old Orchard Beach.
