Frances M. (Salvo) Fazzuoli, 92, formerly of Eastview Road in Hopkinton, died peacefully at Notre Dame Long Term Care in Worcester on Feb. 1. She was the loving and devoted wife of Renzo J. Fazzuoli.
Frances was born in New Haven, Connecticut, on April 28, 1930, to Frank Salvo and Mary DelChiaro Salvo. She was blessed to be among seven siblings in her family and was known to be of great help to her mother. Like many in that generation, Frances set aside school in order to work and contribute to the family. She worked at Sealtest Ice Cream in New Haven, where she met the love of her life, Renzo. After patiently waiting for Renzo to return from the Korean War, as evident by dozens of well-preserved letters, they were finally married in 1954. Ten years later Frances and family relocated to Hopkinton, where they resided for 57 years.
Frances took great pride in her homemaking, keeping one of the cleanest houses on the planet and preparing meals every night for the family. Frances was the beloved mother of David Fazzuoli and wife Gail, and John Fazzuoli and wife Despina. She was the devoted grandmother of Lauren Fazzuoli, and Sofia, Anthony and Nico Fazzuoli; and sister of the late Dennis Salvo, Michael Salvo, Cecile Salvo Coombs, Patricia Salvo Lockery and Lorraine Salvo Stabile. She is survived by brother Gerald Salvo as well as many nieces and nephews. Frances will be forever loved.
Visiting hours were held Feb. 6 in the Iovanne Funeral Home, New Haven, followed by a Mass of Christian burial in St. Michael Church and burial in All Saints Cemetery.
