Maria M. (Tranquillino) Petruzzelli, 89 years of age, of East Boston, passed away surrounded by her loving family on Sunday, March 31, 2019.

Maria immigrated from Italy at the age of 18. She was a hardworking and multitalented individual who approached all of her many jobs with the same diligence and creativity, whether she was doing piecework at factories, beading and embroidering beautiful wedding gowns, or making costumes for Aerosmith. In addition to her accomplishments as a seamstress, she spent many years as a clerical worker at Jordan Marsh.

Maria was a sweet and caring person who loved to garden and cook. She returned frequently to Italy throughout her life, but no matter where she was, she kept up close relationships by phone or letter with friends and relatives across the world. She was a devoted wife to her husband Angelo, to whom she was married for 61 years. Her most cherished role, however, was that of mother and nonna. Her children and grandchildren are so grateful to have had the warmth of her love for so many years. They will miss her terribly.

Cherished daughter of the late Luca Antonio and Maria (Vacca) Tranquillino. Beloved wife of the late Angelo Petruzzelli. Loving mother of Angela Puccini and her husband Paul, Anthony Petruzzelli and his wife Irene, and Anita Davis and her husband Brian. Adored grandmother of Angela Maria Puccini and her husband Brad Frank, Marisa Puccini, and Michael and Alexa Davis. Caring sister of Rita Jackson and her husband Bill.

Family and friends will honor Maria’s life by gathering in Vazza’s “Beechwood” Funeral Home, 262 Beach St. REVERE on Wednesday, April 3rd from 8:45AM to 10:45AM followed by a Funeral Mass at Sacred Heart Church in East Boston at 11:30AM. Interment will follow at Woodlawn Cemetery in Everett, MA.
