Emily Elizabeth (Laham) Hurrell, of East Hampstead, NH, formerly of Norwood and Roslindale, passed away as she lived, surrounded by her loving family, July 25, 2020. She was 82 years old.
Emily was a graduate of Roslindale High School and married her “Prince Charming” Kenneth W. Hurrell. They lived together in her “dream house” in Norwood which was constantly filled with family, friends and co-workers. She loved to socialize and was part of many organizations, such as the Norwood Mother’s Club and the St. George Fellowship. She was also active in Shriners, as well as the Hampstead Senior Center.
Emily worked many jobs, but her favorite was as a greeter at Dedham Medical in Norwood. It is hard to go anywhere and meet someone who wasn’t touched by her generosity, her cooking, her smile, and her warm, loving personality.
Her grandchildren were the light of her life and she never missed a sporting event, recital or concert. Always surrounded by music and dancing, she has joined her husband and mother in heaven and they are dancing together again. She missed them both very much, but her love and memory will eternally live in the hearts and minds of her devoted family.
Emily was the dear and devoted wife of her prince charming, the late Kenneth W. Hurrell. Loving mother of Georgette Hurrell of Dedham and Denise Georgoudis and her husband Dean of East Hampstead, NH. Cherished grandmother, “Tata” of Christopher, Emily, Sean and Michael Cullen, Abigail and Jasmine Georgoudis, and Daniel and Cassandra Hurrell. Beloved great grandmother of Mason, Madison, Nolan, Adelyn and Amari. Dear sister of Mary Shagoury of West Roxbury. Dear mother-in-law of Nora Hurrell of Michigan.
