Della Blanche Hilton

Date of Death: September 1, 2020

Date of Birth: October 19, 1950


Brunswick – Della Blanche Hilton, 69, of Wiscasset passed away on September 1, 2020. She was born in Damariscotta at Miles Hospital on October 19, 1950, the daughter of Fred L. and Eva (Crory) Hilton of Wiscasset. She attended Wiscasset Schools graduating with the class of 1968 before she went on to attend Shepherd Gill Nursing School in Boston.

Della’s 50 year nursing career began as a teen, working as a Junior Aide at Bath Memorial Hospital and completed at MidCoast Regional Hospital, working in the operating and recovery rooms.  Della enjoyed her lunch dates with her dear friend Brian Ames, cooking, playing cribbage and knitting for her family and friends. Della always looked forward to hosing ‘Class of 1968’ lunches each month.

As Della’s health was declining over the past few years, she had the assistance of her lifelong friend Karen Greenlief of Westport, family, friends, and the caring doctor’s and staff at MidCoast Hospital with whom she had worked with for many years.  Della never lost her love for all of her friends and neighbors. Her spontaneous laugh will be remembered by everyone who knew her.

Della is survived by two sons; Lincoln Adams and his wife Julie of North Carolina and Shannon Adams of Wiscasset, 4 grandchildren; Jacob, Kale, Haley and Paige Adams, 3 great grandchildren; Jacob Jr, Olivia and Mia. She is also survived by her brothers; Ralph Hilton and companion Susan Sutter of Anla, Harry Hilton of Wiscasset and a nephew Chad Hilton of Alna.

At this time there will be no services for Della. A time for remembrance of her life will be held in the near future. Arrangements are under the care of Funeral Alternatives, 46 bath Rd. Brunswick. Condolences may be shared at
