Elizabeth (Dango) Garbino

Elizabeth (Dango) Garbino – in Woburn, November 16th, at ninety seven years of age.  Beloved wife of the late Thomas J. Garbino.  Cherished mother of Joanne Daggett, her husband Michael,  Francis “Frank” Garbino,  all of Woburn and sadly the late Thomas “Tommy” Garbino. Devoted “Ba” of Lisa and Laura Daggett, Mark and Michael Garbino.  “Ba” was also predeceased by her siblings, Tony, Charles, Mike and Frank Dango, Lena McSweeney, Anna Callahan, Rose Kirk and Jean MacDonald.  At the families request all services will be private and under the direction of the Lynch~Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn.

Elizabeth “Betty” (Dango) Garbino passed away at her home, Monday morning, November 16th, amongst her beloved family.  The devoted wife of the late Thomas J. Garbino, she was ninety seven years of age. 

Born at home in the South End of Woburn, Betty was one of nine children born to the late Antonio and Jennie Dango.  Betty attended Woburn Schools and was a graduate of Woburn High School along with the Class of 1941

In 1950, she married the love of her life and best friend. Tom Garbino. They brought three children into the world who were her pride and joy, Tommy, Joanie and Frankie.  Their home was right next door to where Betty grew up!

Throughout her life she was actively involved in the family business, “Green Street Garage and Towing.”  Answering the phones, twenty four hours a day, books and bills were all part of her duties through out the years, never missing a day!  Betty began doing this for her husband and later their sons all joined in and it continues today.

As the children began growing older and they began their own families, Betty’s focus expanded to her beloved grandchildren, of whom there are four, Lisa, Laura, Mike and Mark.  They also are the loving little ones that affectionately began calling her “Ba,”  which brought smiles to all, and everyone she knows, calls her “Ba.”

A very devout woman, “Ba” was faith filled and would never miss Mass on Saturday afternoons with her family.  That was a very special time shared with her children and grandchildren.

Family, faith and love was always at the forefront of the Garbino family.  “Ba’s”  cozy little kitchen was the hub and heart  for festivities and gatherings..   Thanksgiving dinners,  Christmas celebrations, family dinners on Sunday afternoon with her home made meatballs and pasta and the New Years Eve ice cream Sunday parties, to usher in the new year!

Ninety seven years of  true dedication and lots love of family and friends, has left memories that will be forever cherished in the hearts of those who had the pleasure of her company.

“Ba” sadly was predeceased by her son Tommy, husband Tom and her parents Antonio and Jennie,  siblings, Tony, Charles, Mike and Frank Dango, Lena McSweeney, Anna Callahan, Rose Kirk and Jean MacDonald.

She was the cherished mother of Joanne Daggett, her husband Michael,  Francis “Frank” Garbino,  all of Woburn  and devoted “Ba” of Lisa and Laura Daggett, Mark and Michael Garbino.  

At the families request all services will be private and under the direction of the Lynch~Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn.

  9. Dearest Dagget family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Your all in my thoughts and prayers. I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Ba. But from what you have told me, I know how much she was loved and will be missed. If Ba was anything like the Dagget woman I know, she was quite a lady. She will live forever in your hearts ♥️.
    Please know I’m thinking of you all fondly.

There were many nights on Green street as I was waiting for your dad to work on my car or one of my brothers cars your mom would stop by and I have very fond memories of those times. My thoughts and prayers are with both of you and your families-Bob McArdle
