OBITUARY:

Ann (Marrone) Tuzzolo passed away peacefully at her home amongst her beloved family, Thursday morning April 16th. She was the beloved wife of Anthony C. Tuzzolo, who passed away just three weeks ago.

Born in Winchester, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Mary (Tofuri) Marrone. Raised and educated in Winchester, she was a graduate of Winchester High School, Class of 1939. Ann was introduced to a handsome young man named Tony Tuzzolo through a friend of her Dad’s! Well, in 1946 they married, which was the beginning of a truly wonderful love story for over the next seventy years.

Moving to Woburn in 1952, they nestled right in to their home in Central Square where they both had remained until the time of their passing. There they dedicated themselves to their two children, whom they adored. Participating and celebrating in all their successes, achievements and adventures, she was there for it all! True Italian culture was always a part of their family. In the kitchen downstairs was the special table where she and her Mom would make all the pasta. The gravy, pasta, meatballs, lasagnas, pastries and many more outstanding Italian delicacies were prepared over the years to everyone’s delight! At holiday time it was bountiful for all the family to gather and enjoy.

When the grandchildren arrived “Nuni” or “Gram” was there for it all. From the birthday parties, kindergarten, high school and college graduations, to the celebrated “sick” days spent at her home, where they were treated as kings and queens when they were unable to go to school, she was the go to “nurse.” When the prom years arrived or any other important event, she would go with girls to assist in the search for the perfect dress!

A woman of tremendous faith, she loved her God and shared this faith-filled spirit with her family. Church was always very important in the Tuzzolo household. Rather a quiet woman, Mrs. Tuzzolo watched over her family faithfully. She was famous for always checking in on and stopping by to make sure everyone was doing well. She was also very happy when anyone, most importantly family, stopped in to see her.

A loving matriarch, Ann will be truly missed by her family. They find their greatest comfort in knowing that she left this world peacefully to be with her true love again, and she leaves them with a legacy of faith, kindness, and family that will always be with them.

Ann was sadly predeceased by her beloved husband, Anthony C. Tuzzolo, and her brothers, Joseph and Mario Marrone.

She is lovingly survived by her children, Joseph J. Tuzzolo, Sr. and his wife Donna and Linda A. Burns and her husband Philip, all of Woburn; her grandchildren, Joseph Tuzzolo, Jr. and his wife Lisa, Sharyn Beaver and her husband John, Anthony Comeiro, Nicole Damrath and her husband Brian, Jessica Hooper and her husband Michael, and Diana and Christopher Burns; and her great-grandchildren, Brett, Brooke, Matthew, Sofia, and Michael Anthony.

A Funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn on Saturday, April 18th at 8 a.m. followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Patrick Church, 71 Central Street, Stoneham at 9 a.m. Interment in Calvary Cemetery, Woburn. Calling hours will be held on Friday from 3 to 7 p.m. Remembrances may be made in Ann’s memory to VNA of Middlesex East and Visiting Nurse Hospice, 607 North Avenue, Suite 17, Wakefield, MA 01880.
