Hudson – Dorothy Josephine (Wayne) Malone, 92, of Hudson, formerly of Keanburg, N.J. and New York, died Saturday, June 28, 2014 at her home, surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of the late Robert A. Malone, who died in 2007.
Dorothy was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., daughter of the late Roy and Agnes (Nelson) Wayne. She resided in New York for most of her life where she cared for her home and raised her daughter. She later resided in Keansburg, N.J. for 10-plus years until finally settling in Hudson with her daughter Kathy and her husband Harry for the past 7-? years.
Dorothy had many interests throughout her life, but most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family. She especially enjoyed all the special moments with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In her spare time, she enjoyed puzzles, including word searches, and playing suduko. Her family will always remember her bright, shiny blue eyes and the way she celebrated life, especially with them. They will miss her greatly.
She is survived by her daughter, Kathy Currier and her husband Harry of Hudson; her two loving grandchildren, Adrienne Santos and her husband Fil of Sterling and Stephanie Desmarais and her husband Rick of Dracut; and her three adoring great-grandchildren, Anthony and Tyler Santos and Jade Desmarais.
