Memory Eternal – Georgia S. Themeles

Georgia S. Themeles, 91, a longtime resident of Dracut, passed away at D'Youville Senior Care in Lowell on Tuesday, July 6, 2021 surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of the late Stephen Themeles.

She was born in Lowell on November 20, 1929 and was the daughter of Louis and Milia (Sarantopoulos) Stylos.

Georgia grew up in Lowell and graduated from Lowell High School in 1947. Her exceptional clerical skills eventually led her to a position in the Lowell Police Department. For over 57 years, the name ‘Georgia’ and the Lowell Police Department were synonymous. She would end up having some connection to every patrolman, officer, captain, or chief at some point in their career. She was always asked why she continued to work, and she always replied, she loved doing what she was doing and couldn't think of anything she would rather do! She truly loved serving the Lowell Police Department and the brave men and women of the force. If you ask anyone that was with the Lowell Police Department when she was there if they knew Georgia, you would first see a warm smile, followed by a number of stories to listen to, depending on how much time you had, and finally how much she was loved by them. Georgia was family to each one of Lowell's Finest for 57 years.

Georgia was an avid reader and especially liked suspense novels. In her younger days, she enjoyed painting. She also would be fond of taking her many nieces and nephews out on adventures. Her biggest personal passion was for her dogs. Her beloved four-legged friends over her adult life, who she cherished, brought her great joy every night when she came home.

In addition to her husband Stephen, Georgia is predeceased by her brothers, Charles Stylos, Socrates Stelos, Peter Stylos, and Harry Stylos.

Georgia was a longtime member of the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church of Lowell and currently Dracut, MA.

Georgia is survived by many nieces and nephews.

Her Funeral Service was held at The Assumption of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church of Dracut. Interment followed in Westlawn II Cemetery.
