Dorothy L. (L'Heureux) Davis obit

Dorothy L. (L'Heureux) Davis, 94, died peacefully at her home on Wednesday, September 14, 2016. She was the beloved wife of Francis J. Davis, Sr., with whom she shared many loving years of marriage until his passing in 1991.

Born in Lowell on January 23, 1922, she was a daughter of the late Leopold and Rose Anna (Diette) L'Heureux. Upon graduating from St. Joseph's High School in Lowell, Dorothy started as a clerk typist at Fort Devens, where she worked for 35 years, rising to the position of Deputy Civilian Personnel Officer before her retirement in 1977 Dorothy was a longtime resident of Lowell and Tyngsboro, and was a faithful communicant of St. Mary Magdalen Parish in Tyngsboro. She belonged to several organizations, including the National Association of Retired Federal Employees, where she served as Service Officer, as well as Secretary Treasurer for the Lowell Chapter, and The "Arborettes," a social group within her local community. In her spare time, she enjoyed reading, and being in the company of her family, neighbors and friends. In her younger years, Dorothy enjoyed traveling with her late husband and their friends. Dorothy was particularly proud of her ability to speak French, a skill she greatly enjoyed and kept up with throughout the years.

Dorothy is survived and will be deeply missed by her son, Francis Davis, Jr. and his wife Carol of Bedford, NH; a sister, Shirley Clement and her husband Russell of Lowell; and a dear niece, Diane Dubois; as well as several other nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband, she was predeceased by her sister, Mrs. Rita Dubois.
