Hudson, NH — Dorothy C. (DiCenzo) Tremblay, 81, of Hudson, N.H., passed away on Saturday, March 22, at the Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua, N.H., after a long, courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Lawrence, and was the daughter of the late Carmella and Severino Di Cenzo.
Dorothy was a graduate of Lawrence High School, and worked as a supervisor at Sanders Associates for 30 years. She was a modern, liberated woman before her time, and was an active and enthusiastic cheerleader for the Cobra’s, a neighborhood athletic organization. She was an accomplished accordionist and performed at many local entertainment events.
If there is anything that describes what Dorothy loved most, it is family, friends, and their families. She enjoyed traveling, especially to New York to attend musical performances of her daughter and son-in-law, (Sonny and Perley), and her granddaughter Desiree (Rain). She also enjoyed going to Foxwoods occasionally with family and friends, good food, music, theater, and special events, such as weddings and family gatherings. She loved summers in York Beach, Maine. She loved dancing and listening to music, especially the jazz greats, and very much loved her cats, Sookie and Pebbles.
She was predeceased by her siblings, Freddie (Fernando), Joseph and Henry Di Cenzo, Phyllis (Philomena) Navarria, Jenny (Giovanna) Lopez, and Eda (Italia) Fusco.
She is survived by her husband of 42 years, Raymond P. Tremblay Sr.; her daughter, Deborah Rousseau-Smith (Perley) and her husband, Mark Smith (Sonny Daye) of Albany, N.Y.; her sisters, Annette (Antoinette) Mosson, and Viola Sharp and her husband, Hank; her sisters-in-law, Theresa and Elsie DiCenzo; her granddaughter, Desiree Rousseau-Smith; and her great-granddaughter, Adyashanti Rousseau-Smith, also of Albany; her stepchildren, Shirley and Paul Barbagallo, Raymond P. Tremblay Jr., and their children and grandchildren. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, great-nieces and great-nephews, and many friends.
