DORIS M. (BARBANTI) CARBONE. –  of Woburn, February 12th at ninety years of age. 

Doris grew up in a loving family with her three sisters and one brother during the Great Depression. Being the oldest, she helped her mother with the chores, and was given the job of caring for her younger sister.  She often walked to Revere Beach in the summers, and was a role model for her younger siblings.

She graduated as Valedictorian from Revere High School, where she had planned to be a language interpreter, as she studied German, Italian, and French. However, she loved fashion and style. This led to her first job at Century Sportswear, where she worked in the office and modeled skirts to sell to large buyers.

Doris met her beloved husband Dick at a young age, coincidently growing up only a street apart from each other. Together they were happily married for 62 years. Settling in Woburn and raising three children, she aimed to be the perfect wife and mother. Doris took great pride in the way she cared for her home and loving family. She truly enjoyed raising her beautiful children.  Once they were ready to go off to school, she slowly entered the workforce working for doctor offices in charge of scheduling and office administration.

Music and dancing were her passions. She played the piano at a young age, and later purchased an organ after the kids were grown to keep up with her love of playing. Music was always playing in the home from the moment she got up every day.  Doris and Dick enrolled in ballroom dancing lessons and soon became a beautiful dancing team everywhere they went.

Doris traveled with Dick to Europe, Las Vegas, Hawaii, California, and even on a very rocky cruise ship in the middle of a stormy February! She was thrilled to travel to Germany, as her mother was born there, among her many visits to see her family in California.  She was very proud of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and loved the opportunities to travel and spend time with them.  Family barbeque and pool parties were always at the top of her list.

She will be missed greatly by her loving family. Memories of her will live on forever in our hearts. Beloved wife of the late Richard M. “Dick” Carbone.  Cherished mother of Diane M. Lucca, her husband James Jr., of CA, Patricia A. Bianchi, her husband Thomas of Winthrop and Richard S. Carbone, his wife Lynn of Woburn.  Dear sister of Irene Barbanti – Taylor of Revere, Judith Rita of Medford, Elaine Figliola of Peabody, and the late, John Barbanti, along with her late brother in laws, Raymond Taylor, Frederick Rita, and John Figliola.  Adored “Nana” of ten grandchildren, and seventeen great grandchildren. Doris is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, cousins and several dear friends.

    Dear Diane, Patty and Richard….
    I was saddened to hear the news of your Mom’s passing. My memories of her as one of our closest neighbors are so pleasant. When I think of her, I remember this about her. She was not only a beautiful woman but was gracious, kind and simply elegant. My heart hurts for you all and I will keep you close in my heart in the coming days.
    Hold each other close !
    Love,
    Susan Novia Cone
