Tribute & Message From The Family


Waltham – Mrs. Anna J. (Napolitana) Mazzone, of Waltham, died Monday, April 20, 2020 at the Neville Center at Fresh Pond in Cambridge. She was 95.

Anna was born in Everett on May 6, 1924 to the late Pasquale and Anna (Coviello) Napolitana. Raised in Everett, she had been a Waltham resident since 1954.

She was a talented seamstress and many years ago worked at Boston Maid. After raising her family, Anna worked for many years in the Faculty Center dining room at Brandeis University until her retirement.

Anna had many hobbies; she loved dancing, spending time at the Women's Lodge Watertown Sons of Italy where she was a member, cooking, sewing, knitting, and crocheting. She always looked forward to her weekly gatherings with her 'knitting' friends where they would share laughs and ideas for new handmade creations. She was also active at the Watertown Senior Center.

While these activities certainly kept her hands busy and mind entertained, the one true pastime that brought her the most joy was sending time with her family and spoiling them with one of her delicious meals. She was a faithful parishioner for many years at Saint Jude Church and most recently of Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted Church, both in Waltham.

Anna is reunited with her siblings, Anne Ruel, Grayce Palazzo, John Napolitana, Mildred Rumore, and Rose Subrizio.

She leaves her children, Anna F. Curry (Robert) of Waltham, and Peter R. Mazzone of Plymouth; her grandchildren, Robin David (Joshua), Anna Curry, Landon and Ava Mazzone; her great-grandchildren, Madison Jackson and Sydney Jackson and many nieces, nephews, and their families.

Anna's family will gather privately for a committal service at Mount Feake Cemetery, Waltham. A date and time for a Memorial Mass at Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted Church, 880 Trapelo Road, Waltham will be announced.

Memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Association, 309 Waverley Oaks Road, Waltham, MA 02452.

My deepest condolences to Anna's family and friends, on the loss of an amazing lady. Anna was an integral and beloved member of our Neville Center community; always socializing and helping others when she could. It is heartwarming to read about all her accomplishments and talents that made her who she was. I will always remember her for her warm smile, genuine/caring personality, and deep love for family and those 2 German Shepards. May her memory live on forever in those who love her.

xo,
The Neville Center

I'm so sorry for your loss. Anna most likely worked at Boston Maid with my mother and other amazing ladies of Waltham. I have a couple of photos of some Boston Maid ladies that I would be happy to email to you. Not sure if Anna is in the two photos that I have.

Dear Anna and family,

So sorry for your loss. Mom was a great friend of my mom's and was a lovely lady. I think she is the last of the Beaver Street friends that have gone.

My sincere condolences to you and your brother and your families.
