Anne ‘Nazarena’ Frances Badessa, 98, peacefully passed away Sunday morning March 31, 2019 at her home in Belmont, MA. She is survived by her beloved husband, Russell C, Badessa, and her children Denise Terenzoni & Russell J, and was predeceased by daughter Lillian Anne Feeley. Anne was also the loving ‘Grandma’ to 5 Grandchildren: Christopher & Jeremy Badessa, Kimberly & Stephanie Terenzoni & Maura Feeley and much-loved ‘Big Grandma’ to 4 Great Grandchildren: Billy, Rachel Anne (in heaven), Lauren & Sarah Badessa. Anne & Russ celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary last August 8th.

Following her 1948 marriage in Somerville, where she grew up, Anne staunchly dedicated herself to the cherished roles of wife, mother & homemaker (and Chief Accountant ;-) living in Belmont since 1950. Anne’s favorite recreational pastimes included candlepin bowling in her younger years & BINGO in her senior years. She loved cooking Italian meals, but watched intently, any & all cooking shows she could find on TV…unless Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune, her all-time-favs, were on. Anne loved dining out, with Crab Rangoon & lobster among her favorite foods.

Relatives and friends are invited for visit in the DeVito Funeral Home, 761 Mount Auburn St, Watertown, from 4 - 7 PM on Thursday, April 4.

Anne’s funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday April 5th at 10 AM in Saint Joseph’s Church,130 Common St, Belmont. No visitation at the funeral home is planned for the morning of the funeral Mass: all family & friends are invited directly to the Church for the funeral Mass celebration. Burial to immediately follow in Belmont Cemetery located at 121 Grove St, Belmont.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made in memory of Anne to: The Fatima Center, www.fatima.org, or a charity dear to you.

Though I know that this is a difficult time for you, my hope is that you will be comforted from God's inspired word the Bible. John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21: 3,4 gives hope of a future resurrection and the complete elimination of death, pain and mourning. Under Jesus' kingdom rule we have this and much more to look forward to. Please accept my deepest condolences.
