Louise E. “Lu” (Spolidoro) Lemone – of Woburn, died peacefully, January 2nd at the age of eighty-six with her family by her side. She was the beloved wife of 62 years to Anthony G. “Sonny” Lemone.

Born in Everett , Louise was a daughter of the late Elsie (Ferari) and Alfred Spolidoro. She was raised in Woburn, part of a very large tight knit family, and the oldest of six children. While attending high school, Louise met Anthony Lemone, and their 62 year romance began.

Growing up, Louise was a very talented child. Her love of all things beautiful and in the art world was a driving force throughout her life.  She saw things in a way that others didn’t. After studying at New England School of Art, Louise worked as a commercial artist for the yellow pages, showcasing her talent.

She was a gifted artist, decorator, gardener and an exceptional cook!  She became the Matriarch of the family planning amazing vacations to Lake Winnipesaukee and Long Beach in Gloucester.   She loved spending holidays with her family, and always planned something special – like Christmas’s right out of a story book.

As the grandchildren arrived, her focus changed.  They were her pride and joy, and did all she could to make them feel loved.  She never missed an opportunity to support them in any activity or accomplishment they completed. She was strong, loving and selfless and planted the seeds of faith, hope and love in all of their hearts.

In addition to her husband, Louise is survived and will be deeply missed by her children, Scott Lemone, his wife Carolyn of Boston, Karen Claflin, her husband William of Woburn, Christopher Lemone, his wife Patricia of Reading and Kimberly Carbone, her husband Peter of Woburn. Treasured “Nana” of Katherine, Margot, Robert, Jack, William Jr., Christopher, Andrew, Ryan, Elizabeth, Madison, Morgan, Alexandra, her wife Maura Cannon, Vanessa and Olivia. Dear sister of William Spolidoro of Woburn, Elsie Jones of Marlboro, Alfred Spolidoro, his wife Patricia of Billerica, Judith Harrison, her husband Richard of Amesbury, and Mary Williams, her husband Gerald of Georgetown. Also survived by her dear friend and caretaker, Jackie Aruna, and longtime friend, Rita Rotondo, as well as many loving nieces and nephews.

  1. Mr. Lemone, Scott, Karen, Chris and Kim I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs Lemone was someone I admired growing up. She was so kind and talented. I remember sometimes bringing things back and forth from ceramics. I was just a kid but I was amazed at the art that was being created. Not to mention her exquisite taste. The best memories in my life was because of your family and the great memories on Mayflower Rd. She will surely be missed.

  2. Karen, Chris, Kim, and family,

    My deepest condolences on the loss of your Mother. May you find peace in your memories and the love that surrounds you.

    Dear Sonny, Scott, Karen, Chris, Kim, and Families,
    Our heart and prayers go out to all the members of the Lemone and Spolidoro Families. If ever there was a Romeo and Juliet relationship, it existed between Sonny and Louise because the love they had for each other was an obvious and visible bond. The love and respect that together they showed for all their grandchildren, friends, and relatives was, in turn, reflected in the love and respect their grandchildren, friends, and relatives had for them. Family functions will never be the same again without Louise’s beautiful smile, personal affection, and great home cooking. Louise will be sorely missed and lovingly remembered.
    Most sincerely,
    Carol and Peter Carbone
