Lawrence — Emma F. (Angelotti) Tringali, 92, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 25, 2014, at Mary Immaculate Nursing Home in Lawrence, after a long, healthy, and love-filled life. She most recently resided in Methuen.
Born in Haverhill as one of eight children, she was the daughter of the late Pasquale and Rosina (Scatamacchia) Angelotti, and the loved and loving wife of the late Joseph J. Tringali of Lawrence.
Emma graduated from Haverhill High School in 1939, served as class vice president and was an instrumental committee member coordinating several class reunions over the years. She worked for, and eventually retired from Western Electric in North Andover, where she took on and mastered several career challenges, finally finishing her working years as a librarian there.
Hers was a life dedicated to love of spouse and family, and to the undertaking that she had done all she might to let her love be known to all. Emma took extreme pride in her Italian heritage, and was the personification of all things kind and unselfish. Never did a harsh or angry word leave Emma’s lips, nor ever did she have the desire (or ability, for that matter) to put herself before anyone else in this life. All who knew her would attest to these attributes that resided deep within her.
The family would like to thank the entire staff of Mary Immaculate Nursing Center for their outstanding, loving care during her time there, in addition to the tremendous support provided by Merrimack Valley Hospice.
Emma is survived by her son, Joseph Tringali and his wife, Debbie, of Hampstead, N.H.; and her daughter, Brenda Tringali and her husband, Anthony Fiorino of Methuen. Emma also leaves behind six loving grandchildren, Joseph, Christina, Lia and Anthony Tringali, and Nicola and Alec Gagne. In addition, she is survived by two sisters, Gina Bordieri and Mary Coolidge of Haverhill; and several nieces and nephews.
