Belfast — Eileen Ada Aldrich Dubinett, 81, widow of Dr. Nathan J. Dubinett, died peacefully March 7, 2021, at her home in Belfast after a brief illness. Born in Ames, Iowa, March 26, 1939, she was the daughter of John P. and Ada (Bottomley) Aldrich.

Eileen lived in Nampa, Iowa, and then Lima, Ohio, where her parents lived. On June 28, 1981, she married Dr. Nathan J. Dubinett in Newark, N.J. In 1988, following the death of her husband, Eileen moved to Belfast.

She was a member of the Belfast United Methodist Church, where they were as much her family as was her birth family. She loved her church family and enjoyed many great times and special moments with them.

Eileen loved traveling and would take a major trip someplace new and exciting each year. Her last international trip was in 2019, when she traveled to Chile. In January 2020, she drove across the country to be with her grandkids, Joey and Ben, in Oregon. She loved life and celebrated many special times with her gal pals, family and church family. She volunteered, would travel to help those in need, and enjoyed giving back to her community on every level. Belfast gave her a wonderful life and she loved living there.

Predeceased by her husband, Dr. Nathan J. Dubinett, in 1987, she is survived by two daughters, Amy C. Jeppesen of Mooresville, N.C., and Heidi A. Gornik and her husband, Michael J. Gornik, of Corvallis, Ore.; grandchildren Joseph D. G. Gornik and Benjamin A. Gornik, children of Heidi and Michael Gornik; and her younger sister, Stephanie Oxley.

Private interment was held in the Mt. Hebron Cemetery in Montclair, N.J. Memorial gifts may be made to the Belfast United Methodist Church, 23 Mill Lane, Belfast, ME 04915.
