HAVERHILL — Annie (Badolato) Bachini, 95, passed away at Hannah Duston Healthcare in Haverhill on Monday, February 4, 2013 after a long illness. Born in Allentown, Pa. on June 15, 1917, she was one of four children of the late Vincenzo and Maria (Biamonte) Badolato.
Annie attended Haverhill public schools. She was primarily a homemaker but also worked part-time at the Allen Shoe Company in Haverhill for a number of years. She was a resident of Haverhill for 90 years, and spent many summers at her home in Salisbury Beach. The wife of the late, John P. Bachini, Sr. Annie is survived by her son, John P. Bachini, Jr. and his wife, Anne Marie (Grimley) Bachini of Salem, N.H.; her sister-in-law, Julia (Bachini) Rampulla of Groveland; special nieces, Cecelia Badolato and Annamarie (Badolato) Pasquerella of Haverhill, Lorraine Badolato of Methuen and Marisa Huffman of Plano, Texas, as well as many other nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brothers, Frank Badolato, Domenic Badolato and Anthony Badolato.
Annie was best known as a caregiver to anyone in need. She had a loving and nurturing way about her that endeared to all who knew her. She was "Aunt Annie" to just about everyone she met, whether related or not. Anyone who came in contact with her couldn't help but be touched by her smile and charm. Annie loved to cook, especially Italian food, for her family, friends, neighbors and just about anyone else who just dropped in to visit. There was always a pot of coffee on the stove as well. She also loved to bake for the holidays, and truly enjoyed having her family and friends around her in her home; for Annie, the bigger the crowd, the better. Annie will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her, but the memory of her loving and caring life will live on forever in their hearts. Annie's family would like to express their deep appreciation for the wonderful care she received from the staff at Hannah Duston Healthcare whre she resided for the last seven years.
