Anne M. Detora, 91, of Northborough, MA, passed away on January 15, 2019 in her home.
Born in Brussels, Belgium, she was the daughter of the late Jane L. and Octave Herman. She
came to Providence from Belgium in 1953, and was followed by her mother and most of her 8
Anne met her late husband John while working for Mohawk Airlines as a flight attendant. After
several years of raising children, Anne re-entered the workforce as a podiatric assistant. She
loved working with patients — getting to know them, helping relieve their pain, and providing
emotional support.
Anne and John lived most of their 50 married years in Carlisle, MA and Atlanta, GA. They
moved to Northborough, MA to be close to their grandchildren. Family was Anne’s priority and
joy. She was an adoring, caring, actively involved grandmother and mother. She delighted in
everything her grandchildren did, and always supported their interests.
Anne was an active member of St. Bernadette’s in Northborough, MA and in her neighborhood
community. She was an avid reader, birdwatcher, gardener, baker, and nature lover.
Anne is predeceased by her son, Mark and is survived by her daughter, Danielle of Stow, MA,
her son-in-law Andy, and 2 grandsons, Spencer and Jonas; three sisters, Suzanne Ziegelmayer
of Smithfield, RI, Marie-Jeanne DuBois of Prescott, AZ, Raymonde Navarette of Wakefield, RI
and Benjamine Wilson of Seattle, WA; and many nieces and nephews.
A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11am on Saturday, January 19th at St. Bernadette Parish, 266 Main Street, Northborough. Please visit to read Anne’s complete obituary or to leave a condolence.
