ANTOINETTE MARY (DHOSI) ANDERSON

ANDERSON, Antoinette "Annette" Mary (Dhosi) Loving wife of Richard "Dick" Anderson, who predeceased her in March 2010, and devoted mother to Linda Anderson Aguirre, passed away in Miami, Florida, on Wednesday, October 10th, at the age of 83. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Annette was a resident of Westwood, Massachusetts for more than 35 years. She was a 1946 graduate of Boston Girls' High School, and a parishioner of Saint George Albanian Orthodox Cathedral in South Boston, which her parents, Mitti and Olympia Dhosi, helped found in the 1920s. She fondly remembered singing in the choir there for many years. Before she retired, Annette worked as an Administrative Assistant at the MIT Endicott House in Dedham, Mass. She is survived by her loving daughter, two beautiful granddaughters whom she adored, and cherished son-in-law, Fernando A. Aguirre, all of Miami Beach. Annette was predeceased in 2011 by her beloved brother, Joseph M. Dhosi, and is also survived by beloved sister-in-law Irene Dhosi, niece Katharine Kolenda, nephew Joseph Dhosi, and their beautiful children, as well as many other extended family members and friends in the New England area. We will all miss Annette's loving, generous spirit, and her practical, heartfelt advice and approach to life. We love her, and will never forget the love she had for our family. Her legacy endures through our treasured memories.
