Dorothy L. (Kachadorian) Gulachenski, 92, of Southborough, and later Hyannis, passed away peacefully on Sunday January 29, 2023, with her family at her side after a courageous battle with Dementia. She was a resident of Bridges by EPOCH Memory care unit in Sudbury, MA.
She was the daughter of the late Sooren David and Elizabeth (Boyajian) Kachadorian and wife of the late Edward M. Gulachenski. Dorothy was a graduate of North High School in Worcester and was proud of her achievements and success working in the music business. Dorothy was the first female Program Director for WTAG Radio in Worcester and later at WNAC in Boston before leaving to raise a family. During her time working in radio, she made many famous personal friends including Rosemary Clooney, Johnny Mathis and Frank Avruch (the original Bozo the Clown). Music was a key part of her life both professionally and personally. Dorothy played the piano and had an amazing voice and was especially proud of sharing her love of music with her sons and grandchildren.
Dorothy was predeceased by her sisters, Miriam Markarian and Barbara Martin.
She is survived by her sons, Alan Gulachenski and his wife Liz of Southborough, MA, and Bryan Gulachenski and his wife Ellen of Boston, MA. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Alexandra, Samantha, Jack and Nathan and several nieces and nephews.
