MARY CATHERINE age 95, devoted and beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at Attic Angel Place. She was born on December 23, 1921, daughter of the late John and Mary (Sullivan) Dilworth in Detroit, Michigan. Mary Kay graduated from Visitation High School and then went on to earn a bachelors degree from the University of Detroit. On September 2, 1944 she married Thomas Dorais and they remained sweethearts for nearly 60 years and together they raised a loving family of 7 daughters and three sons. Mary Kay was a member of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church and volunteered for many church and civic organizations. She had a variety of interests including gardening, bridge, golf, tennis, reading, movies, worldwide travel and was an avid sports fan, especially of Notre Dame Football. She cherished spending time with her beautiful family. Mary Kay is survived by nine of her children; Susan (Mike) Zerafa, Diane Broome, Thomas (Terri) Dorais, Nancy (Jim) McDonald, Mary Grace Dorais, Patricia Adolphs, Robert Dorais, Kathleen (Steve) Klei, and Karen Dorais; 28 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. In addition to her loving husband, Thomas, Mary Catherine was preceded in death by two sons, Charles and Jimmy (in infancy); four loving brothers, Jack, Phillip, Robert and David Dilworth and a loving sister, Rosemary VanGoethem. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at ST. THOMAS AQUINAS CATHOLIC CHURCH, 602 Everglade Drive, Madison at 11:00 a.m., Friday March 3, 2017, with Father Bart Timmerman presiding. Visitation will be held at the church on Friday from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the Mass. Following the service there will be a luncheon in the church social hall. The family would like to extend a very special Thank You to the compassionate and loving staff at Attic Angel for their devoted care of Mary Kay.
