Dorothea (Daoulas) Husson 

Loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend; 

Dorothea “Dottie”  (Daoulas) Husson, 91, of Lowell and formerly of Dracut, and  a member of a well known Greater Lowell family, passed away peacefully at her home Tuesday morning May 15, 2018 surrounded by members of her loving family. 

She was the beloved wife of the late John Husson who died May 9, 1980.

Dottie retired as a bookkeeper for Nat Sergi Enterprises in Lowell after many years. As a younger woman she worked as a bookkeeper for the U.S. Navy in Washington, D.C.

She was a proud and longtime member of St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church in Lowell.  Devoted to her faith, she was an active parishioner who served on the Church Board in the role of treasurer for many years. Baptized in the Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church she also attended Bible Study classes there regularly.

A woman of many interests, Dottie loved and wrote poetry throughout her life. She was also a puzzle enthusiast and enjoyed traveling with family and friends. However her greatest joy was the time she spent with her children, their families and especially her treasured grandchildren and great grandchildren who knew her as their devoted "Yia Yia."

  • Sharon and Peter Galvin  - Remembering YiaYia who was an engaging and loving
    YiaYia will be missed by her family and those of us who called her YiaYia but were not an actual part of her family. YiaYia was an engaging, involved, fun loving, and life loving woman. We always enjoyed visiting with her and sharing stories. She will be missed by all. RIP YiaYia.
  • Georgia Rombakis Crawford  - Remembering my beautiful Aunt Dottie
    My lovely, sweet, and kind Aunt Dottie...such an amazing role model for us all on how to live a life centered around love of family, love of friends, love of learning, and love of the gift of gab! She was one of our family's true treasures, a pure soul who knew how to calm the seas with her nod and smile, and was such a master at butchering the Greek language...mainly just to get a humorous rile out of my mom (her older sister). We will miss you forever, but will steadfastly keep you forever in our memories and hearts as someone who mastered the art of life like...well, a master! Love you always and forever, your niece (deep in the heart of Texas)....Georgia
