Anne L. Gioiosa

Family & friends are invited to attend visiting hours on Sunday, October 29th, from 2:00p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the Vertuccio & Smith,  Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rte. 107), Revere for Anne L. Gioiosa, whose long struggle with metastatic disease ended on Wednesday evening, October 25th, at the Kaplan Family Hospice House of Danvers. Her funeral will be conducted on Monday, October 30th from the funeral home at 10 a.m., followed by the Funeral Service in the Funeral Home at 11:30 a.m., immediately followed by interment in Woodlawn Cemetery, Everett.

Anne was born & raised in East Boston, taking her elementary schooling at the former Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Grammar School, East Boston. She then attended the Julie Billiart Catholic High School for Girls in Boston’s North End, graduating in 1976. In the late 70s, she began a job with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, working in several departments for the next thirty-eight (38) years, settling about 30 years ago as Project Manager within the Division of Information & Technology. Anne maintained a close relationship with her former colleagues after retiring in 2015. She is a member of NAGE (National Association of Government Employees). For over 30 years she lived in Saugus & about 10 years ago, began summering at the Cape, particularly in Eastham. For several years, she and her devoted wife of 23 years, Linda A. Stiles were wintering in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Along with Linda, she traveled often throughout the country and visiting Italy. In 2016, Anne chaired & orchestrated a superb 40th High School Class Reunion. It had been the only reunion, for the Class of 1976, offered. It was a huge success, deemed mostly by the tremendous work effort afforded by Anne.

Anne was the beloved daughter of the late Daniel & Josephine (Geraci) Gioiosa of East Boston. She is the cherished sister to Charles Gioiosa & his wife Barbara Brainin of Seattle, Wash., Denise A. Giangregorio & her husband, Alan of Winthrop, John Gioiosa & his wife, Mary of Malden & the late Anthony & Marie Gioiosa. She is also lovingly survived by Renee A. Parente of Dorchester, Brian L. Parente of Winthrop & Michael V. Parente & his wife, Karen of Canton. She is the adored “Nonna” to Nevaeh R., Eli M., Amarra J. & Ryan J. Parente & the proud aunt to many nieces & nephews.

    It has been several days since Anne passed and though I hadn’t seen Anne in many years my heart continues to be very heavy from her way to sudden departure. I will never forget the beauty of Anne and all her qualities that could never be expressed in words. Anne’s smile, laughter and loving ways will live on forever. My only comfort is that I know Anne’s phenomenal dance moves are lighting the skies in heaven. My deepest condolences to Linda, Denise and Alan, and Charlie and Barbara and all family and friends.
    Yours Truly,
    Debbie Ciardello

    I am a close friend of Charlie Gioiosa and Barbara Brainin (soon to be 40 years). While I feel as if I know Annie, I never had the good fortune of meeting her in person. I know her through Barbara and Charlie. My heart is breaking for them, for Linda and for all her loved ones. Just know you are in my thoughts. Marilyn

    Anne was not only a great, dedicated and hard working employee for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, she was also a wonderful and loyal friend. She added so much to the work environment – making it professional, positive and fun. My condolences to her wife and family. Anne Gioiosa made a difference. She will be missed.

    My dearest friend, I know the years have pass as many times since we met. You were 21 and I was 18 when we met. Through the years we we were family, sisters and friends. We would lose touch due to life. But then we would reconnect like there wasn’t anytime had pass. We would laugh and call each other “Gypsy’ we knew how much we cared and loved each through the years. But this sadly we were to late to see each other again. My dearest Anne, please forgive me. Next time we meet will be in Heaven. We we see each other again my Gypsy Friend. I know you are not in pain any more and Jesus craddled you in is arms on your way to Heaven.
    Good Bye My Dearest Friend Anne. I am so sorry for your lost Linda.
    My Gypsy
    Love and Light

    I have so many fun memories of Anne. She always had a smile on her face and was the life of the party. A very kind and positive person. She was taken from this earth way too soon. My heart goes out to Linda, her family and her friends. May she rest in peace.

    Great Memories of growing up with Anne on Frankfort Street, we both loved playing Sports and could keep up with the boys with no problem. I hadn’t been in touch with Anne for many years and enjoyed reconnecting with her on Facebook to see and enjoy vicariously her adventures with her Beloved Wife and Family. You will be missed! “Goodnight Beautiful Lady and May Flights of Angels Sing Thee To Thy Rest”.
