She was a woman that was full of energy, fun and love. She lived with her niece Terri & husband Joe and their two boys, TJ & Patrick for about 15 years in Weymouth. Sis was their surrogate grandmother, and she did everything a grandmother would do for her grandsons, and more. After the boys were of age, Sis settled in Revere, closer to her own son and she lived a happy & fun filled life. She was an active member at the Rossetti Senior Center & and was also a member of the Swampscott Cribbage Club. She was still playing cribbage just a week before her passing.
