Obituary

Amelia Hancock Wellington
August 14, 1956 – November 3, 2019


Amelia Wellington, known to friends and family as Mimi, departed this life on November 3, 2019. She was born in Framingham, Massachusetts to Dr. Mark S. Wellington and Patricia S. Wellington on August 14, 1956. She was their third child. After graduating Framingham South High School, she attended Wellesley College, where she graduated in 1978.

While working as a technical writer for Apollo Computer (now part of Hewlett Packard) Mimi met Bruce Olsen, whom she married in 1987. They moved to Sudbury, Massachusetts, where their two daughters, Lily and Margaret, were born.

In 1998, the family relocated to Eagle, Idaho, where they lived until 2013. During her time in Idaho, Mimi took up quilting. She had always been a talented handicrafter, but showed great skill in quilting. She helped to start a quilting group in Eagle and became friends with many people in Idaho and throughout the Northwest, who remember her fondly.

In 2013, diagnosed with frontotemporal degeneration, Mimi moved back to Massachusetts to be with her birth family. She is survived by her daughters Lily and Margaret Olsen of Eugene, Oregon as well as her sister Barbara Currie of Framingham, Massachusetts and brothers Larry Wellington of Acton, Massachusetts and Bill Wellington of Staunton, Virginia.

A memorial service is planned for November 16, 2019 at United Church of Christ, 723 Massachusetts Avenue, Boxborough, MA, starting at 10 AM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Mimi’s memory be made to The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (https://www.theaftd.org/). Memorial page actonfuneralhome.com

We met Mimi, Bruce, Meg and Lilly in 1998 when moved to Eagle, Idaho. Meg and our daughter Raelee went to pre-school together. Mimi organized a play group and invited us to come. That was the start of many years of my friendship with Mimi. We were Girl Scout leaders together which took us camping, hiking and into lots of crafts. We did step classes together and our outings took us to many fabric and quilt shops. Her quilting skill was amazing. Mimi was articulate, kind and a good friend. Her spirit will live on in family and friends that loved her.

We will be out of the country on the date of the service so I wanted to share a memory or two of Mimi. We bonded over having daughters the same age and some mutual good friends. I remember her smile and her enthusiasm for living. She loved making beautiful crafts whether it was with the loom or quilting—she could make beautiful things come out of threads and imagination to weave them or sew them together. May good memories of Mimi and family and friends embrace all who loved her at this time of loss.
