Dorothy A. (Stilianos) Copoulos, 86, of Peabody, died peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family on October 25, 2018.  Born in Lynn, Mass, to the late Margaret and Arthur Stilianos, she graduated from Lynn English High School and Lynn Hospital School of Nursing.  She was an RN specializing in geriatric nursing and was the Director of Nursing for many years at several long term care facilities.  Upon retirement, she co-founded Silver Linings, a consulting service for the aging and their families.
