OBITUARY:

Eleanor M. Diorio a life long resident of Woburn passed away at the Billerica Health Care Center, early Sunday morning August twenty first. The beloved daughter of the late Cosmo and Josephine (Ciampa) Diorio she was ninety-six years of age.

Born in Woburn, she was raised and educated in North Woburn having graduated from Woburn High School with the Class of 1939.

After graduating from high school Eleanor went right to work. She started as an assembler at Carr Fasteners, which later became TRW and upon her retirement at age sixty-four, she was the Main Supervisor of the plant.

A feisty, energetic woman Eleanor was always on the go. Her day always began with Mass at St Anthony Church, where she was a parishioner her entire life. She joined in every activity that occurred at St. Anthony and always enjoyed helping others.

Throughout the years she also enjoyed travelling with her family and friends. Whether it was a weekend or two weeks she was always ready to go. Florida appeared to be the place she most liked to visit and would go often!

Using a sewing machine or by hand, Eleanor was a true craftsman when it came to sewing. Be it sewing clothes, repairing, hemming or making dresses or coats, her ability to sew was seamless.

When it came to her family there was nothing nicer than being together with all her siblings and their children. Throughout the years it was the norm for all to stop by the homestead at any given time to visit, which would make her day!

In later years she had made her home, at the Tidd Home. For years she so enjoyed herself there and had established many new friendships.

Sadly Eleanor was predeceased by her brothers Francis, Joseph, Alexander, Charles and Louis Diorio.

Eleanor is lovingly survived by her sisters Ida Harman in Tucson, AZ and Dorothy Luongo of Winchester.Dear sister of Ida Harman of AZ, Dorothy Luongo of Winchester.
