Waltham – Mrs. Eileen M. (Burgess) Cincotta, of Waltham, died Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at Newton-Wellesley Hospital. She was 91 years old.

Eileen was born in Bouctouche, New Brunswick on November 23, 1929 to the late Adelard and Delphina (Bourgeois) Pellerin. She moved to the United States with her family when she was eight years old. After her mother's death in 1938, Eileen was adopted and raised by her aunt and uncle, Olive and Louis Burgess.

Eileen had worked as an inspector at Unitrode Corporation in Watertown. She enjoyed a lengthy twenty-eight year long career until her retirement in 1991.

She was a faithful communicant at Sacred Heart Church on River Street and made many lifelong friendships within the parish community. Eileen was always able and willing to volunteer her time at church events and had also belonged to its former Holy Rosary Guild.

Of all the things that made her heart sing, perhaps her greatest love of all was her family. She was a wonderful wife and mother and her heart grew more and more with each grandchild and great-grandchild.

Eileen is reunited with her beloved husband, the late Roland J. Cincotta, who died on December 3, 2003. She was also the sister of the late Rita Babineau, Amanda Dallaire, Aline Pellerin, Laurie Pellerin, Geralda Cassie, Edmee Hebert, Suzanne Moyer, Marie Hancock, Joseph Pellerin and Jeannette McCarthy.

She leaves her children, Richard J. Cincotta (Maryellen), Ronald J. Cincotta (Kathy), Deborah A. Cincotta (David Zanco) and Donna M. Scanlon (Richard), all of Waltham; her grandchildren, Richard Cincotta, Jr. (Lindsey), Anthony Cincotta (Colleen), Rosalie Boothe (Kevin), Nicole Nutting (Brian), Ronald Cincotta, Jr., Jennifer Pasquale (Joseph), Joseph Cincotta (Abbie Marques), Ryan Scanlon (Kelly), Danielle Scanlon and Richard Scanlon, Jr.; her great-grandchildren, Dante, Bria and Marco Boothe, Maxwell and Miles Nutting and James Scanlon; her brother, Robert Burgess, and many nieces, nephews and their families.

Family and friends will honor and remember Eileen's life by gathering for calling hours in The Joyce Funeral Home, 245 Main Street (Rte. 20), Waltham on Tuesday, March 16th from 4 to 7 p.m. Her Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday at 10 a.m. in Sacred Heart Church, 311 River Street, Waltham Burial will follow in Mount Feake Cemetery, Waltham.

To view Eileen's Funeral Mass please visit at 10 a.m. on Wednesday morning, March 17th.

Memorial donations may be made to Sacred Heart Church, 311 River Street, Waltham MA 02453.


A note from the funeral home pursuant to Governor Baker's recent order:

During times of uncertainty and crisis one might wonder what to do at the loss of a loved one or how to show support to a friend given the limitations that the pandemic continues to present.

Telephone your friend to offer words of love and support, give them a virtual hug, drop something delicious by the house, leave a condolence on the funeral home website, make a donation to their favored charity, send a card or flowers or have a Mass said, remain in touch, and above all else . . . say prayers for the deceased and their family and the world during this difficult and unprecedented time.

These simple gifts of sympathy and charity are more valuable than you will ever know.

When public wakes are held capacity limits mean that your visit should be brief to allow other guests time to say hello to the family. Only members of the immediate family remain present throughout.

It goes without saying that people who have lost someone are especially sensitive and understanding to the concerns that some of their own family members and friends may have about visiting any public places right now. If this does not feel like the right time for you to venture out please don't.

Space limitations also mean that funeral services inside the funeral home and in many places of worship will also be private. Most services, at the family's request, will also be livestreamed and recorded for future viewing. The link to access the channel is found at the bottom of the obituary notice online.

Cemetery services are included in the current outdoor gathering limit of twenty-five people.

During any events, public or private, common sense precautions prevail. That includes masks covering your nose and mouth, staying with your household group throughout the services and keeping a sensible distance.

Thank you . . . again . . . for your patience and understanding.
