Obituary

 

Ware - Domenica M. (Izzi) DeSantis, 94, of Ware, died on Monday, February 22, 2021 at her home surrounded by her family. 

 

She was predeceased by her husband of 70 years, Frank P. DeSantis in 2018. They had a special relationship that endured until the day he died. They loved each other dearly, in good times and in bad, and both enjoyed a wonderfully long and fulfilled life together. She leaves her daughters Gloria Goddu and her husband David of Thorndike, Rosemarie Parker of Ware, and her son Frank, Jr. of Ware; her grandson, Robert John Harnois of Ware, and three granddaughters, Leslie Archambault and her husband Eric of Belchertown, Kristin Fiola and her husband Andrew of Medway and Alyssa Parker and her husband Luke of Medway. She also leaves 4 great-grandchildren, Mason and Luke Archambault and Jackson and Raegan Fiola; several nieces and nephews, and her brother, Ken Izzi of Chicago.  She was predeceased by her siblings, Mary Galvin, Angie Whigham, Carmella Chapin, and Basil and Santos Izzi.  She was born in Barre, and has lived in her same home for 73 years.

 

Domenica worked in the Woolen Mills in Barre when she was younger, and also as a seamstress at the former Seven Sisters in Ware.  She was a loving and giving woman, always wanting to be with her family.  She was a wonderful homemaker, raising her family and looking after Frank.  She enjoyed cooking for large gatherings held at her home, making apple pies for Frank, as well as crocheting, gardening and sewing. She and Frank would travel to enjoy polka dancing, and were always a hit at the family weddings.  She was a member of the Daughters of Isabella and the Golden Age Club. 

 

Her family is very grateful to her caregivers, Laurie, Kathy, and Val.
