Deskouhy Attarian (nee Damerjian) of Doylestown passed away peacefully at home on Monday, March 8, 2021.
“Des” was the daughter of the late David and Tevolinda Damerjian and was born and raised in Philadelphia along with her 5 siblings. She was a graduate of Simon Gratz High School. In 1952 she married Martin Attarian and they raised their family; first in Huntington Valley, Pa and then in Doylestown Township where she had resided since 1966.
She had worked many years in various women’s apparel shops. In the 1970’s and 1980’s she was employed at the Margaret Helm’s Dress shop on State Street in Doylestown and then later worked many years at Talbot’s at the Ag Works.
She was proud of her Armenian heritage and was active in her church. But most of all, she was devoted to her family.
Des is survived by her husband of over 68 years, Martin. In addition, by her children; Aram (Linda) Attarian of Morganton NC; Leon Attarian of Chalfont PA; Edward Attarian of New Britain Township, PA and Lesly Attarian (Phil Charron) of Philadelphia. Also, by her grandson Adam Attarian of Seattle Washington.

She is preceded in death by her sister Hermine Karakashian and her brother-in-law John Bosnian.
