A native of Bronxville, N.Y., Gulick resided for almost 60 years at 68 Church Hill Road, the oldest house in Sandy Hook. Her parents, Kathleen and Karl, purchased the house, built in 1712, in 1957 and maintained it as an antiques shop. Gulick managed the weekend business for many years.
The Gulick family remained in the house after Interstate 84 and the Iroquois Pipeline cut through their property, visible to motorists entering and exiting the I-84 ramp at Exit 10. In 2016, the Newtown Bee reported on the sale of the contents of the Gulick homestead by Fairfield Auction of Monroe, Conn.
Gulick graduated from Connecticut College in 1956 and earned a master’s degree in dance from Mills College. She taught dance at several prominent colleges and later worked in an ophthalmologist’s office in Danbury, Conn.
An avid gardener and Americana enthusiast, Gulick was active in the Newtown Horticultural Club and the Newtown Historical Society. She is survived by her sister, Jane.
A memorial service will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church in Newtown on Saturday, April 21, at 2 pm, with a reception to follow after the service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Newtown Historical Society.
