With profound sadness we announce the passing of Pauline Teresa (Occhinto) Jannini, 82, of Andover, MA. She passed peacefully at her home with family by her side.
Pauline was born in Boston on April 20th, 1936. Formerly, she was a resident of Winchester, Woburn, Lynnfield, Stanford, CT.
She was the beloved wife of the late Ralph H. Jannini III, daughter of the late Peter F. Occhinto & Margaret (Addario) Occhinto, sister Sandra Lee Occhinto, sister of the late Peter Occhinto Jr. and Larry Occhinto.
Her greatest love was her three children, sons, Ralph Jannini, Mark Jannini & fiancé Ann McGowen Caulfield, daughter, Lisa Carazzo and husband Chris Carazzo.
Spreading her love abundantly to her six grandchildren Karalee & her husband Chase Rochon, Mark Jannini Jr, Justin Jannini, and their mother Kristine, & John Jannini, Amanda & her husband Brian Jones & Hope Carazzo as well as her many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Her first job was working at Pauline's Donut Shop in West Medford. A past time for Pauline was yard “sailing” with her husband & sharing her finds with others. She was a gourmet cook who enjoyed having family over to relish in the meal she lovingly prepared.
She lived a full life as a mother, homemaker, cake designer, & played a crucial part of her husband’s businesses. She was a creative soul in all ways. She was always giving gifts to cherish & most of all her encouraging words. Her wisdom was sought out by many at her kitchen table where an endless amount of offerings were given. There was much to be learned at that kitchen table, countless hours of open, honest communication in which she shared her profound thought provoking ideas about many subjects, all of which will remain instilled in our hearts. Her unconditional love towards others was admirable. She will be dearly missed & forever in our hearts.
Visiting hours will be held on Tuesday, April 23rd at the Lane Funeral Home 760 Main St. (Rte. 38) Winchester at 10 AM to 12 PM followed by Interment at Calvary Cemetery Winchester.
