Madeline was born in Revere but was raised & educated in East Boston and Boston Public Schools. She was an alumna of East Boston High School. After graduation, Madeline worked for several businesses in an administrative role. She later took a position for the Sylvania Co. & became familiar & knowledgeable about electronic assembly. She then went to work for the Gillette Corp. in the same area, a position she held for over 9 years. As she worked her way up the ladder, she landed a better job at Raytheon in Andover, as a Micro Electronic Assembler. She worked there for 20 years, retiring in 2002. Most of her working career, she worked side by side with her best friend & soul mate, Bea. When Madeline retired, it wasn’t to take long & exotic vacations, it was to care for her ailing dear mother. Madeline did everything for her mom and felt blessed that she was able to have the time to dedicate to her. Madeline had lived in many different cities & towns due to her jobs, but Revere was her home for over 14 years, until moving to Methuen 9 years ago. Madeline was known for her legendary cooking and she did it with love. She enjoyed preparing many meals for family & friends or just for her and Bea to enjoy. It gave her a great deal of pleasure; people loved her food. Later on, she would like to take trips to the Cape and always loved being at the beach. She enjoyed other vacations to Florida, South Carolina & the Bahamas. But of all places, home is where she was most content. She was known for her witty sense of humor and to share a joke, but her kind and wonderful heart is how she will be remembered.

She is the devoted daughter of the late Anthony & Adeline (Santilli) LoPresti. The loving life partner of Beatrice A. “Bea” Malisko of Methuen, formerly of Revere. Dear sister of Frances M. Marckini & her late husband Robert of Billerica, Frank LoPresti of East Boston, Anthony LoPresti & wife Gerrie & Robert LoPresti & his former wife Rose Lopresti, all of Winthrop. She is also lovingly survived & adored by many loving nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews & one great grandnephew.
