Dorothy Haney, 95 of Methuen passed away peacefully on Friday, September 1, 2023. Dorothy was born in Methuen on July 17, 1928, and is survived by her husband of 69 years, William C. Haney.
She was the daughter of the late George and Hannah (Mill) Morley and lived her entire life in Methuen.
Known as Dot or “Grammy”, she was loved by all who met her, including her incredible nurses and caregivers for the past year and a half at Brigham Health and Rehab in Newburyport. She was a very likable, sweet, quiet woman yet was also known as a straight shooter for her sassy and quick-witted comebacks. Dot loved camping, sewing, reading, major league baseball, and her word search and bingo games.
She was employed by Madison Hill Upholstery in the Methuen Mill Building as a fabric cutter for a number of years and was also a member of the Methuen Senior Center.
Dot will be deeply missed by her husband William Haney; 2 children, Barbara Perry and her husband Joe, and Buddy Haney and his wife Linda; 6 grandchildren, Jared Haney, Britney Haney and Riley Haney; Jennifer Perry, Lauren Foucher, and Lucas Perry. 5 great grandchildren; her sister Bertha Rothwell; and several nieces and nephews.
Family and friends will honor and celebrate Dot’s life by gathering for her calling hours from 4-6pm on Thursday, September 14th at Dewhirst Boles Funeral Home 80 Broadway, Methuen. A service will be held immediately following the calling hours and burial will be held at a later date at the Massachusetts Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Winchendon, Mass.
