OBITUARY:

Edith M. (Capone) Lentini passed away Tuesday, November 24th at the Winchester Hospital. The beloved wife of the late Charles J. M. Lentini, she was eighty four years of age.

Born in Winchester, she was one of seven children born to the late Alfred and Rose (Colliciello) Capone. Raised and educated in Winchester Edith was a graduate of Winchester High School along with the Class of 1949.

Following high school she married the love of her life Charlie Lentini. They purchased their home in the South End of Woburn where they remained for over sixty years.

Having brought three children into the world Edith remained a very dedicated homemaker throughout the years. Her focus was always on the children, tending to the daily chores, keeping a very neat and clean home along with cooking delicious Italian meals with recipes from her own mother.

When it came holiday time, Edith’s cooking was truly a gourmet delight! Thanksgiving, Christmas were truly a cultural delight with all sorts of Italian delicacies. Easter was always celebrated with her signature dish Pizzagaina, consistently the best!

Entertaining family was always a treat!, Edith loved having people coming to their home and joining them for a meal, cup of tea and a homemade anise cookie!

Mr. Lentini ran a family grocery store on Fowle Street over the years, where after the children were in school they worked side by side. Lentini’s Market was a very successful neighborhood grocery store in the south end for years and very well known for their fresh food and produce.

In later years she had the distinct pleasure of spending time with her beloved grandchildren, with whom she shared wonderful relationships with.

Playing Bingo was an all time favorite for Edith. Be it at the Woburn or Winchester Elks, Boys Club or South End Italian Club she and her dear friends spent some real good times playing bingo and having a lot of fun doing it.

Sadly after fifty three years of marriage her dear husband Charlie passed away. Edith was also predeceased by her son Charles J. Lentini and siblings Josephine Heaneult, Clara Spinosa, Florence Macario, and Francis Lucas-Pratt .
