Maryann F. Elisii, at 77
Maryann F. (DiLoreto) Elisii, of Quincy and formerly of Hull, died peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, on Nov. 10. She was 77.
Born in Everett, she was raised on the North Shore and in Hull, the daughter of the late Settimio and Frances (Cerasola) DiLoreto.
Mrs. Elisii came from a large Italian family with several cousins her same age and enjoyed many happy parties and holidays with them and created the same in her own household. She was a great Italian cook and housewife to her husband of many years and a caring mother to her two girls. She took immaculate care of her house and herself, always exercising, dancing, or jogging around the house. She dressed fashionably – always with sparkle – and enjoyed her beautiful jewelry and impeccable makeup.
She loved listening to music. Her favorite radio station was the Kiss 108, which was always on in the background, especially the “Matty in the Morning” show. She enjoyed walks along the water and spent a lot of time tanning and bathing at Nantasket Beach.
After her family was grown, she worked in the cosmetic sales industry for Jordan Marsh and Filene’s; she retired from Macy’s after 30 years of service. She worked very hard for those companies, earning highest-sales rewards, and her family benefited from her employee discount when they shopped.
She became a woman of great faith and prayed the rosary daily for all her friends and family. After managing diabetes for more than 50 years, she became disabled before her time but used her strong Catholic faith to persevere until the end.
Mrs. Elisii raised her children with strong morals, which continue through her grandchildren. She was the devoted mother of Marguerite Elisii-Johnson, spouse of Mark Johnson, of Hull; and Marietta Troup, spouse of Brooks Troup, of Middletown, Md. She was the loving grandmother of Joseph Elisii-Johnson, of Hull; Corbin Troup, spouse of Jasmine of Pennsylvania; and Ayla and Vincent A. Troup, both of Maryland. She had a younger brother, Philip “Skippy” Watson, of East Boston, and is the former wife of Joseph V. Elisii, of Hull, and Jack Kane, of Florida.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend the visiting hours on Monday, Nov. 19, from 4-8 p.m. in the Pyne Keohane Funeral Home, 21 Emerald St., Hingham.
Her funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Tuesday at 11 a.m. Services will conclude with interment in Hull Village Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to the American Diabetes Association, 10 Speen St., 2nd floor, Framingham, MA 01701.
