Florence M. “Flo” (Bradley) Covino, age 55, of Woburn, formerly of Winchester and Orient Heights, East Boston, passed away suddenly on February 24, 2021. She was the beloved wife of Louis W. Covino, of Woburn, and the devoted mother of Louis J. Covino, of Winchester.
Born in Everett, MA, Florence was the daughter of the late Lawrence and Florence (Giella) Bradley. She was raised in East Boston and graduated from East Boston High School. Flo worked for the U.S. Postal Service since 1997, spending the majority of her career at the South Boston Postal Annex, and most recently in Arlington. A friend to all, Flo was known for her kind heart and generosity. She was always available to help a friend in need, and would frequently help organize fundraisers to assist friends who faced unexpected illnesses and hardships. She also selflessly participated in many charitable campaigns for the Boston Public Schools and Breast Cancer Awareness. In her spare time, she loved spending time at the beach with family and friends, with her chair and a book, especially in Nahant and at Wingaersheek Beach.
Remembered as a phenomenal mother and wife, Flo especially enjoyed cooking. Her sauce was legendary and she thoroughly loved hosting the holidays and providing a spread of her delicious specialties.
