Anna Marie (Nichols) (O’Donnell) Servodio
Anna Marie (Nichols) (O’Donnell) Servodio, passed peacefully to her eternal rest at age 95 on 13 November 2021 in Jamaica Plain, MA. She was the only child born to William Joseph Nichols and Anna Ida King in Roxbury, MA on 6 September 1926, and her mother died when she was four years old. A longtime resident of Hyde Park, MA, she graduated from Hyde Park High School in June 1944. In 1950, she married Philip O’Donnell and raised five sons on 105 Clare Avenue, Hyde Park, MA. In July 1980, she married Joe Servodio, and lived in Brockton, MA until his passing in 1991. She is preceded in death by her two husbands, Cosimo Guiseppe (Joe) Servodio (1991) and Philip Paul O’Donnell (2008), and her beloved son, Stephen (1995).
Anna (Nancy) was an active leader in the American Legion, Sacred Heart CYO Band and Color Guard, and the Princemen Drum and Bugle Corps (Melrose). She enjoyed being around young people, and the house at Clare Avenue was often filled with teenagers listening to popular music and having fun. While raising five boys, she was employed as an administrative assistant for an insurance company, the State Health Department, and a law firm in downtown Boston. Her typing speed and accuracy became legendary, and she was asked to assemble the revised liturgical documents following Vatican II by Sacred Heart Church Roslindale, MA. Her favorite times were when the Brockton house was full of grandchildren for cookouts and swim parties.
Anna is survived by four sons and daughters-in-law: Francis and Karen (Quincy, MA), Philip and Denise (Wilmington, DE), Frederic and Margaret (Hyde Park, MA), Lawrence and Deborah (Onset, MA). Her twelve grandchildren include: Ann Orsini (West Des Moines, IA), Megan Fahey (Wilmington, DE), Christian (Redwood City, CA), Katherine Claire (Onset, MA), Cecilia Wilken (Papillion, NE), Kerry (Quincy, MA), LeeAnn Finnigan (Gardena, CA), Jacob (Quincy, MA), Meghan (Salem, MA), Philip R. (West Des Moines, IA), Dianna Chamberlain (Hyde Park, MA), Jennifer (Los Angeles, CA). Anna’s ten great grandchildren are: Julianna, Robert Orsini, Brody Michalski, Riley, Jacob Jr., William Wilken, Charlotte Orsini, Killian, Magdalena Chamberlain, and Sirenna.
