Alvezia was a kind and loving sister, aunt, friend, and relative to all who knew her. Always a smile, laugh, and willingness to help others. She lived a life well loved by many. She retired from St. Regis Paper Company in Newton with 44 years of service. Her hobbies included cooking exceptional Italian food, needlework, crocheting, and ceramics. Her greatest joy was her family and all the nieces and nephews that arrived over the years for her to love and care for. She greeted everyone with a smile, a cup of coffee, and homemade pizzelles she had at the ready. She will be dearly missed and after 98 years many visitors would come to see her which spoke to her personality and kind way.
