Stephen Drucker, the founding editor of The Instances’s Kinds part, known as Ms. Dullea “one of many best writers the Instances ever produced.”
“However what she wrote was revealed on the ladies’s web page,” he mentioned in a telephone interview, “and later within the type pages, so it was by no means taken critically. Make no mistake, it was severe.”
Georgia Milburn Comstock was born on Sept. 4, 1933, in Newark, N.J., and grew up within the Parkchester neighborhood of the Bronx. Her father, George Comstock, died when she was a child. Her mom, Louella Patricia Doty, was an artist.
Georgia studied journalism at Fordham College, however, elevating a household in her post-college years, didn’t start writing professionally till she was in her 30s, when she wandered into the workplaces of The Patent Trader, a group newspaper in Mount Kisco, N.Y., to ask for a job. There, she gained native awards for masking the ladies’s liberation motion in Westchester, the place she lived.
She is survived by her son, Mark, and daughter, Regan. Her marriage to their father, Charles Dullea, an promoting supervisor, led to divorce in 1980. Within the mid-90s, she reconnected with Ernest Dickinson, her former editor at The Patent Dealer. They married in 1995, the 12 months Ms. Dullea retired. Mr. Dickinson died in 2021.
In 1993, Ms. Dullea coated the marriage of Donald Trump and Marla Maples in a Vows column, gently spoofing each the event and the Kinds part’s oft-mocked marriage ceremony pages. It was a capstone to a 12 months of gleeful reportage within the metropolis’s tabloids, wherein Mr. Trump’s divorce from his first spouse and his affair with Ms. Maples had performed out of their pages.
