October 27, 1932 – May 30, 2022
Jane DiLiegro, loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, left this world peacefully at home on May 30, 2022 surrounded by her family who adored her. Jane was born on October 27, 1932 to Harry and Agnes Swicegood in Chelsea, MA. At a young age, Jane met and married the love of her life Cosmo DiLiegro. The two were blessed to share 73 years of marriage during which Jane dedicated herself to creating a happy home and family. Jane’s focus was her family, and she, in turn was the family’s heart and center. Jane and Cosmo lived in Revere, Massachusetts where they were always surrounded with close and extended family members. They spent winters with lifelong friends in Miami, Florida. Wherever she was, Jane was always the life of the party. Her fun-loving nature ensured that friends and family would be laughing when they were in her company. She had a special gift for making those she cared for feel happy and loved. Jane loved spending time preparing delicious meals for her family. She was a talented cook whose greatest pleasure was sitting around the kitchen table listening to compliments on her latest recipe. Her famous Thanksgiving “gabaletti soup” was always a favorite. Jane ensured the soup would be passed on through future generations when she invited grandchildren to learn the recipe by helping her make the soup each year. Jane leaves her loving husband Cosmo DiLiegro and her devoted children; John DiLiegro and and his wife Patricia of Revere, Patricia DeRosa and her husband Kenney of Revere, and Michael DiLiegro and his wife Lenore of Peabody. She also leaves six cherished grandchildren; Danielle Smith and her husband Jeffrey Smith of OR, John DiLiegro and his wife Natasha of NJ, Jennifer Lee and her husband Shaun of Lexington, Michael DeRosa and his wife Stefanie of Merrimac, Krystal DiLiegro and her fiance Glen Rodrigues of Malden, and Nanci Haas and her husband Robert of Revere. Jane leaves 12 great grandchildren; Tyler and Olivia Smith, Dylan and Brooke DiLiegro, Connor and Katie Lee, Ellie and Marlo DeRosa, Ava and Abigail Patch, and Robert and Leni Haas. She also leaves many nieces and nephews. Jane was an inspiration for loving unconditionally and living life to the fullest. She will forever hold a special place in the hearts of her family.
