My grandmother died this morning. She turned 93 last Wednesday.
The wake is from 4 to 8 PM on Sunday at Keefe's on Mass Av in North Cambridge. The funeral is at 10 AM the next morning at St. John the Evangelist across the street, with a reception following the burial at the Sheraton Commander on Garden Street. (Keefe's has an online condolences site thingy.)
Several photos from her life over the years
- When my cousin Eddie (her first grandchild) was a kid, his mother tried to get him to call his grandmother Nana, but for some child-language-development reason which kirinqueen might be able to clarify he couldn't quite say it, so he called her Nina. It stuck, and that's how she's known to her 7 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. ↩
