An amazing strong willed lady of wit and charm, she was a caring wife, mother, grandmother and friend to the lives she touched. She retired from Craig Industries in 1978 and worked for Textile Mills before that. She dedicated more than 45 years to her vocation. She married in 1934 and lived in Lawrence, Mass., until 2006 when she moved to Winterport with her son, Joseph and daughter-in-law, Penny. She enjoyed gardening, Italian music, cooking many of her Italian dishes, and loved being with family and friends. She was loved by many and will be greatly missed by her family and friends. She always made sure her family did not have to go without and was a firm believer in having enough to give to others less fortunate.
