Obituary of Dorothy Marie Calandriello
Dorothy Marie Calandriello, a loving mother and grandmother, passed away after an extended illness on Wednesday night, March 11, 2020. She was 76 years old. Dorothy was one of three children born to Carmine and Angela Anzivino in Everett, MA. She was a graduate of Everett High School and made her home in Everett until marrying and moving to Burlington, MA in 1969.
Dorothy had a number of careers over the years. After her two daughters were born, she remained home to care for them and run the household. When they were in school, she worked part time in the Burlington school system in the cafeteria. It was nice to get out of the home and work, but even better to be able to keep an eye on her girls. After working part time at LaCascia’s Bakery for a spell, she then entered the workforce full time. She was a testing analyst at Associated Testing Labs (which later became Bell Technologies) where she retired after 20+ years. Unable to sit still after retirement, she worked 9 more years at Shaw’s grocery store as a cashier where she loved the interaction with her customers.
Outside of work, Dorothy was a bit of a homebody. One of her joys was sitting on her back porch, watching the birds and all that nature had to offer. She enjoyed going to Bingo, family vacations to Hershey Park, Amish Country, and Cape Cod. She was a big fan of the Red Sox, Patriots and Bruins. She was a fun mother and grandmother as she enjoyed attending Red Sox games, NSYNC and BackStreet Boys concerts, and Riverdance shows with her family. She had a great sense of humor and always had good intentions towards others. Dorothy will be missed, but never forgotten.
Dorothy was the mother of Andrea Calandriello of Burlington, MA. and her companion Peter Avtgis of Revere, MA and Lisa Pigott and her husband Scott of Brookline, NH. She was the grandmother of Eric Calandriello and Brett, Austin & Cassidy Pigott. She was the former wife of Daniel Calandriello of Eatontown, NJ. She was predeceased by her brothers; Jack and Bill Anzivino.
