Lucia DiLetizia Obituary

Lucia DiLetizia, affectionately known as Lucy by those who knew her best, passed away peacefully on March 2, 2024, in Boston, MA, at the age of 87. Born on March 8, 1937, in the quaint town of Pontecorvo, Italy, Lucy was a woman whose life was defined by her unyielding commitment to her family, her love for providing caregiving to the elderly in her community., and her boundless generosity.

Funeral from the Carroll-Thomas Funeral Home 22 Oak Street Hyde Park Thursday morning at 10:00 AM followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at Most Precious Blood Church Hyde Park at 11:00AM.  Visiting hours will be held Wednesday evening from 4-8 PM at the Funeral Home, Interment at St Michaels Mausoleum.  Relatives and friends invited.

Lucy's journey led her across the world when, in 1966, she and her late husband Vincenzo  DiLetizia, made the brave decision to embark on a new life in America. They established their roots in Hyde Park, where they welcomed their son, Gino, and together they built a life filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories. Vinny's devotion to Lucia was unwavering, and their marriage of 67 years stands as a testament to their enduring love and partnership.
A loving mother, she  took great pride in her family.  Her son Gino DiLetizia and daughter-in-law, Ada Maria of Hyde Park were the recipients of her wisdom, warmth, and guiding hand throughout their lives.  Lucy's role as a cherished sister was beautifully illustrated in her relationships with her nine siblings: (Late) Benedetto, Maddalena, Paolina, John, Sosio, Antonio, (surviving)  Pietro, Luisa and Maria all of Italy, Sister in law  Onorina Risi and her husband Nunzio of California, Renato DiLetizia and his wife Giola of Canton and the late Felicia Spiridigliozzi and her late husband John, Maddelena Ferdinandi and her late husband Louis, and John DiLetizia and his surviving wife Candy of Hyde Park.  Lucy's family circle extended far and wide, encompassing numerous loving nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and friends, all of whom felt the touch of her kindness and compassion.
Lucy's life was characterized by hard work and dedication. After arriving in America, She found her calling in the Healthcare industry, where she applied her loving and caring abilities to caregiving to the elderly.  Beyond her work, Lucy was a woman of many passions. She was always ready to prepare her favorite Italian homemade recipes. Those who had the pleasure of sharing Lucy’s homemade recipes experienced warmth of giving in her company.  Caring, loving, and kind—these words encapsulate the essence of Lucy. Her legacy is one of love, generosity, and the joy of a life well-lived. Lucy's impact on the world was as profound as it was gentle, and  she will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to know her.
