Anna E. (Cicchetto) Grammer, a life-long resident of North Woburn died peacefully at home on May 31st at eighty-seven years of age.  She was the beloved wife of the late William F. Grammer, Sr. 

Born and educated in Woburn, Anna was the daughter of the late Bartolomeo and Victoria (Pironi) Cicchetto.  On June 18, 1950 Anna married the love of her life, Billy and together they raised four children.  

Anna will be sadly missed, especially by those who knew her for the infamous Meatball subs she made for Jack’s Variety in Central Square.  She will always be remembered by her friends and family as an amazingly strong and feisty lady, one who had no problem telling it like it is!  Her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren knew her by Nana, and some called her “Gamma”.  Whatever her name, they all loved spending time with her, listening to her many stories from her younger years.  She had a big heart for everyone she loved, and had advice ready when you needed it most. 

She spent many hours volunteering her creative abilities to Saint Anthony’s Church, making bows for baskets and wreaths.  Anna participated annually in the St. Anthony’s festival, and taught many years of CCD for the parish.  She was a true friend to her neighborhood “girls”, whom she spent many good times with, driving around town together and lending a supportive ear to.  Anna also worked as a teacher’s aide at the Veteran’s School while raising her own family.

She will be missed by many!

Anna was the loving mother of William Grammer Jr., his wife Kathleen of Billerica, Ann Marie Graham, her husband John of Woburn and the late Kathleen and Daniel Grammer.  Cherished grandmother of nine and great-grandmother to many.  Dear sister of the late John, Anthony, Mary and Frankie Cicchetto.  Also survived by many nieces and nephews.
