Devoted Wife and Mother Devoted to Her Church and the City of Everett
Teresa “Terry” (Oddi) Iannaco of Everett entered into eternal rest in the Tufts Medical Center after a brief illness on Tuesday, January 17. She was 85 years old.
A devoted wife and mother, Terry spent years as a homemaker, caring for her husband and children. She volunteered and was devoted to her Church, St. Anthony’s as a religious educator, Eucharistic Minister, lector, Catholic Women’s League and of course, Bingo. Terry was very passionate about the City of Everett and the Everett Council of Aging having been a member of the board and serving as Acting Chairperson. If anyone would inquire to her as to where she was going, her answer would be “I’m going to the Armory.”
For many years she worked at the Everett Cooperative Bank, first as a teller and retiring as a bookkeeper. She was a caring and compassionate person to family, friends and everyone she met. Never wanting to remain idle, Terry loved cooking for her family, selling plants at her yard sales, dancing, costume parties, senior outings and travel with family and friends.
The devoted daughter of the late Francesco and Maria (Presutti) Oddi, she was the beloved wife of the late Angelo for over 59 years prior to his passing; dear and devoted mother of Angelo Iannaco, Jr. and his wife, Adele of Melrose, Steven V. Iannaco and Maryann Iannaco Campana of Everett; sister of Alfredo Franciosa of Florida and the late Michael, Anthony and Daniel Oddi, Ralph Franciosa, Assunta Petrigno, Tina Frangiamone, Margaret D’Archangelo and Rose Sisti; loving “Nana” of Marina DeNicola, Peter and Phillip Iannaco and Anthony Campana and great-grandmother of Nathan DeNicola. Terry is also survived by several nieces, nephews and very, good friends.
Funeral arrangements were by the Cafasso & Sons Funeral Home, 65 Clark St. (Corner of Main St.) Everett. Interment was in Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett. Contributions in Teresa’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Association, 309 Waverley Oaks Rd., Waltham, MA 02452 would be sincerely appreciated.
