Hudson – Georgia (Angelo) Roumas, 93, passed away Friday Aug. 52011, at Leominster Hospital.
Born Jan. 7, 1918, in Hudson to Catherine and Nicholas Angelo, both whom had emigrated from their native Greece, she was a lifelong resident of Hudson. She graduated from Hudson High School in 1935 and became a career small businesswomen, for many years operating the Neighborhood Variety Store on Broad Street in Hudson with her father Nicholas, the founder, her brother Christo, and her husband, the late Zenon (Tony) Roumas, eventually becoming proprietor. The store was a landmark on Broad Street for 40 years until she and her husband retired and sold the property in 1985. They were active members of the Sts. Anargyroi Greek Orthodox Church in Marlborough.
Despite her busy life, Mrs. Roumas found time to learn the art of painting with a number of her friends in the 1970s, and continued to paint for many more years. Words cannot describe her dedication and love for her family, nor can they begin to catalogue the many good things she did in her long life.
She is survived by her son, John Roumas of Leominster, and her grandson, Nicholas Roumas of Southborough, by both of whom she will be sorely missed.
A funeral service will be held Wednesday Aug. 10, at 11 a.m., at the Sts. Anargyroi Greek Orthodox Church, 9 Cashman St., Marlborough. Burial will follow in Forestvale Cemetery, Hudson. Calling hours will be held Tuesday Aug. 9, from 5 to 8 p.m., at the Tighe-Hamilton Funeral Home, Inc., 50 Central St., Hudson. Fr. Peter D. Costarakis will conduct the traditional Trisagion Service at 7 p.m. Aug. 9 in the funeral home.
