OBITUARY:

Nancy M. DeAngelis of Arlington, a former longtime resident of Woburn, died suddenly at her home on Sunday, August 17th. She was seventy-nine years of age.

Born in East Boston, she was the daughter of the late Louis and Adeline (Russo) Mucci. She was raised and educated in Medford, where she graduated from Medford High School. She lived with her family in East Woburn for many years, and then retired to Port Charlotte, Florida, where she remained for nearly twenty years. Recently she had moved back to this area to live in Arlington.

Nancy was a talented seamstress, and in her early years she worked as a milliner and beader at a hat design firm on State Street. She continued with her avocation throughout her life, often making beautiful draperies and craft items for her family. She was also an avid Bingo player for many years. Her main interest, however, was her family, and she most enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Preceding her in death were her longtime companion, Albert Trites, and a brother, Paul Dockham.

Surviving are four children: Diane R. Silva of Salem, Richard A. DeAngelis of Woburn, Lisa C. Bradley and her husband Wayne of Riverview, Florida, and Adeline Morris and her husband Michael of Billerica, two brothers, Antonio Mucci of Saugus and Louis Mucci of Alna, Maine, and a sister, Maria Childress of Wareham. She was also the loving grandmother of Krystal and Angela DeAngelis, Joseph and Diane Silva, Christopher Fisette, Nancy and Lily Huntoon, and Amanda Morris, and great-grandmother of Deanna, Jazmin, Madison, and Jessica.

The funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, on Thursday, August 21st at 9:15 a.m., followed by a funeral mass in St. Joseph’s Church, 100 Washington Street, Woburn, at 10. Interment is private.

    Diane, Richard, Lisa, & Adeline,
    Where to start, so many fond memories of your mom. The nights we would sit and play scrabble, she made it so much fun with her,challenging the words we would put down, and then out would come the dictionary. Then the coffee and goodies she always had for her company. Gosh,she was so much fun to be with. Will always cherish those memories. May God bless you Nancy, I know he has such a special place in heaven for you.

    Diane and family, I just wanted to share two wonderful memories I have of your mother… One stormy snowy night when we lived in Woburn long ago and I needed to get home Mrs. DeAngelis and Al offered to take me home in that terrible weather. I was so very grateful to them, it was a scary ride home. Many years later when I was visiting Diane in Stoneham and the kids were in the pool, my son Michael was only about 4 years old and was struggling in the water and Mrs. DeAngelis jumped in and pulled him out! So I will remember her fondly and gratefully always.

    My Dear Friend Diane,

    I’m sorry to hear of the untimely death of your mother. It has been years
    (? 35), since I’ve seen your mom, but I can still remember her lively personality and eagerness to laugh!

    Diane, I’d love to be in touch with you so we can “catch up” with each other. I’ve included my email with this posting in hopes that we can make contact.
