WEST BOYLSTON-Elizabeth Carol (Monopoli) Lopardo departed from this world on October 4th with her daughter and husband by her side at the age of 92. She lived a full life that touched the hearts of many with her deep kindness, generosity, and unconditional love. The majority of her life’s journey was spent with her loving husband of 71 years, Domenic Lopardo. Their relationship modeled for all the deep faith, devotion, love, care, and respect that is needed to build something lasting and true. She adored her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren alike and took great pleasure in seeing them happy and provided for.
She was a stay at home mom until her children were grown and then joined the workforce as a store clerk in the Worcester area. Her last place of employment was CVS in West Boylston where she worked for 28 years until her retirement in 2003 at the age of 78. Her work ethic, sense of responsibility, and integrity were exemplary and often rewarded with high praise. Many knew her as Lee and would seek her out in order to share an uplifting exchange. Her passing is a great loss to those she leaves behind but her life and genuine warmth will be celebrated for many years to come.
She predeceases her husband Domenic C. Lopardo, her daughter Carol Blake and son-in-law Steven Blake, her son Domenic R. Lopardo and partner Linda, her granddaughter Jodie Blake-Howard, and her great grandsons David Blake and Benjamin Howard. She was predeceased by her grandson David M.
