Marie T. “Nanny” (Lockwood) Landino – of Woburn, died May 11th, with her family by her side at the age of eighty-seven. She was the beloved wife of 61 years to Leonard L. Landino and devoted mother to Linda M. Landino, her husband Robert L. Martin of Woburn, Michael P. Landino, his wife Melanie A. of Pepperell, Donna M. Landino of Woburn, Barbara A. Landino of Medford and Paul J. Wise, his wife Michelle of Reading. Proud “Nanny” of Matthew, Nicole, Kayla, Nathan, and Ryan.

 Born in Boston and raised in Belmont, Marie was a daughter of the late Paul A. and Catherine (Robinson) Lockwood. She was a 1952 graduate of Belmont High School and earned her associate’s degree from Fisher College in Boston. Years after high school, Marie started dating a high school classmate, Leonard, who had just returned home from his final deployment in the Air Force. They eventually fell in love, and after marrying, made their home in Woburn.

 For many years, Marie worked in healthcare billing. First for Dr. Eli Jacobs in Belmont, later for Lexington Medical, and then for Health Resources where she retired in her seventies. She continued working well into her 80’s notably for the Tidd House in Woburn.

 Even after retirement, Marie never slowed down! She was a longtime active member of the Woburn Middlesex Lions Club, receiving the 2019 Melvin Jones Fellow Award for her service. She was a vital member of the Woburn Memorial High School Scholarship foundation from 1986-2008 and was deeply involved in the Pathway to Knowledge project at the high school. Marie was also the co-founder of the Fred Farrey Scholarship Fund for students who attended Reeves Elementary School. She was a dedicated member of St. Barbara’s Church, Women’s Club, Variety Shows, Fall Festivals, and along with her husband conducted wedding rehearsals for the parish.

 Marie was a voting polls fixture for many years at the Hurld Wyman School, always greeting each voter with a smile. She volunteered her time every year in helping with the Mayor’s Senior Citizens dinners.

 Marie and Leonard enjoyed traveling with friends all over the Caribbean, as well as taking annual trips to the Catskills with the Arlington Retired Men’s Club. Above all, Marie’s favorite place to be was York Beach, ME. with her “beach family”. It held a special place in her heart since childhood, creating a lifetime of memories.

 Marie was a thoughtful, loving, strong, and selfless woman. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, great-aunt, and friend to all. Her family and friends were her world, and she was their biggest supporter, especially at sporting events! She would travel near and far to cheer on the ones she loved. The annual “Landino, Lockwood and Armstrong” Family Christmas Party was the highlight of her year. She cherished nothing more than celebrating with her loved ones.

 Marie was active throughout her life and went to the gym regularly. She loved life and everyone in it! Her bright presence will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

 Marie is survived and will be deeply missed by loving sister Sara Armstrong King of MI and dear sister-in-law of Richard Landino of Billerica and Jacqueline Lockwood of RI. She is preceded in death by her brother Paul A. Lockwood and his wife Jeanne. In addition to her in-laws: Arthur Armstrong, Fred King, Geraldine and Philip Landino, Agnes and Horace Landino, Margaret and George Beaulieu, and Gail Landino. She is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and countless friends, including her dear friend, Marge Landry.

    Marie Landino was one of the first parents I met when Woburn Schools began their school library program. She and Marge Landry were faithful volunteers. I would observe Marie as she signed out the children’s books and talked so caringly to each child. Woburn Schools were lucky to have such a kind and dedicated person to assist in the school library. May she find a new library in heaven and continue her kind work. Rest in peace, Marie. You have earned your heavenly home. My thoughts and prayers are with the Landino Family at this time.

    We are so very sorry for your loss. We have so many fond memories of our talks as we walked in the neighborhood or when she’d be driving by our house and would stop to catch up on this and that – usually with a funny remark or comment. We are so sad and praying for you at this difficult time.
