Mildred R. (Anastasia) Aloisio passed away at the Winchester Nursing Center, Friday, January 29th.  The beloved wife of the late Gaetano Aloisio, she was eighty-seven years of age.
 
Born in Boston, Mildred , known to her friends as “Millie”, was the daughter of the late Paul and Paola (Badessa) Anastasia.  Her mother died when she was very young, so Millie and her father lived with her extended family in West Roxbury. Millie was raised like a daughter by her aunt, Josephine Anastasia,  along with her “brothers and sister”, Josephine’s four sons, Peter, Anthony, Frank,Jr., and Charles, and her step-daughter Patricia. The love of her childhood and pride of being a member of this family stayed with Millie her whole life.
 
Following high school, Millie attended Fisher Junior College in Boston. After graduation she began a long career as a secretary , starting in the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office and eventually retiring from a medical technology company in the late 1990’s.
 
She married Gaetano Aloisio in 1963 and moved to Woburn. There they raised four children,  Linda, Lisa, Paul and Laurie.  Even though she left the workforce temporarily to raise her family, she often took on part time work such as doing taxes for H&R Block.  For many years after, she was the family tax preparer for members of her extended family, too.
 
All throughout her life, Millie was surrounded by her family and so very proud of the children she and Guy had raised. Her happiest days were the time she spent with her children and nine grandchildren, and most recently with her great grandaughter Maddie. Millie’s family will fondly remember how much they all enjoyed being together for Sunday dinners with her meatballs and sauce or homemade pizza. While with her family, Millie was always ready with either a smile or laugh while just soaking in the joy of being together.  
 
After her husband died in 1996, after more than 30 years of marriage, her oldest daughter, Linda, continued to stay with her . Later,  Linda and her husband James played a large role in both keeping Millie comfortable in her own home and were an important source of company for her.
 
Millie was a devout member of St. Barbara’s Church in Woburn and will be remembered as a strong and loving woman. She was completely devoted to her family and they will miss her dearly.
