Joan A. Dumas, 81

January 06, 2014

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Joan Agnes Dumas, 81, of 204 Phelps Ave. died Monday, Jan. 6, 2014, at the home of her daughter, Audrey Dumas-Ghidotti and her son-in-law, Gary Ghidotti, in North Adams.

Born in North Adams on May 28, 1932, daughter of John Arthur and Agnes Veronica Woloski Andrews, she attended the former St. Joseph's High School.

Mrs. Dumas was last employed in the North Adams School System, but her primary role in life was being a loving and devoted wife and mother.

She was a communicant of St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, where she frequently attended Mass. She was very active in church life, especially with the St. Elizabeth annual Church Bazaar. She enjoyed bowling in the Senior Bowling League at Mount Greylock Bowl. She was an avid walker and enjoyed taking trips to Saratoga, N.Y., Cape Cod and Maine. She grew especially fond of her four dedicated caregivers Heather, Corey, Kaley and Kayla.

Her husband, Arthur Vincent Dumas, whom she married on Oct. 27, 1951, in the former St. Francis' Church, died Nov. 24, 2010.

Besides her daughter and son-in-law, she leaves her daughter Bonnie Burns-Salas and her husband, Sal Salas, of Torrance, Calif.; two sisters, Anne Beauchamp of Pittsfield and Carol Daniels of Groton, Conn.; three brothers, Tony Andrews of Bennington, Vt., Don Andrews of North Adams and Bill Andrews of Adams; grandchildren, great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased her brothers, Craig Andrews, John Andrews Jr. and Kenneth Andrews.
