Obituary for Doris A. Lotti (Kelloway)

Loving Mother, Grandmother, Aunt
U. S. Airforce Veteran

Doris A. (Kelloway) Lotti, of Lowell, passed away on October 12, 2021, in Lowell, aged 85 years.

Born in Wakefield, MA on January 30, 1936, she was the daughter of the late Albert H. and Alice Hopeful (Fifield) Kelloway. Doris grew up in Wakefield, Greenwood and Lowell. She graduated from Lowell High School and attended Wheelock College where she earned an Associate’s Degree in Science in 1991.

As a young woman, Doris enlisted in the U. S. Air Force where she served with the 3201st Food Service Squadron until her Honorable Discharge in 1961. She received the Good Conduct Medal with two bronze loops, Air Force Longevity Service Award, and the Air Force Reserve Medal. She was deeply proud of her military service to her country. Later, Doris was honored for her service during the Korean and Vietnam Wars at a special event with State Representatives in 1997. This took place as part of a ceremony where the Mayor of Lowell proclaimed it to be Women’s Week in the city.

She was employed by (CTI) Community Teamwork Inc. for several decades and thoroughly enjoyed her career as a Headstart Teacher, using her immense creativity to impart joy and wisdom to her little students. Doris kept in touch with teachers and kitchen staff who became her friends over the years.

Doris was an active member of the Highland Union Methodist Church and St. Paul’s Methodist Church. She enjoyed organizing church suppers and other church activities with her sister, Norma, as well as other friends from her church family. Doris had a passion and talent for repurposing fabrics and materials, from which she created zipper pouches, aprons, and potholders to share with others.

Doris enjoyed family gatherings and day trips to Hampton Beach with her sister and nieces whenever possible. A proud Grammy, she especially enjoyed being visited by her cherished granddaughter and great-grandson. She will be fondly remembered and missed.

She is survived by her loving granddaughter, Melissa Lotti, and great-grandson, Evan Lotti, both of Lowell, a brother, William Kelloway of Florida, and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews who enjoyed spending time with their Auntie Doodoo. She was the loving mother of the late Mark J. ‘Scooter’ Lotti, former wife of the late Mark Lotti, and sister of the late Norma Beland and her husband Arthur, and Winston Conrad and his wife Lorraine.

Friends will be received at the Morse-Bayliss Funeral Home, 122 Princeton Boulevard, Lowell, on Monday from 5 to 8 PM. Her Funeral Service will be held at the funeral home on Tuesday at 10 AM. Face coverings respectfully required. Interment in Edson Cemetery, Lowell.
