Mary Judith (Olmedi) Cintolo, 93, a longtime resident of Framingham passed away peacefully on June 14, 2023 at St. Patrick’s Manor.
Born in Wellesley to Antonio and Candida Olmedi, Mary lived most of her life in Framingham. As a young girl she treasured her many trips to Cape Cod with her best friend of 80 years, Patsy Kirby. Mary met the love of her life, Lou Cintolo, a grocer from Framingham in 1954. They married on June 25, 1955 and raised three children in Framingham: Barbara, Lou, Jr. and Michael. Mary was a dedicated wife and life partner, working alongside Lou in his Grant Street Framingham grocery store, Cintolo’s Grocery, for more than 40 years.
A loving wife, grandmother and great-grandmother, she is survived by her daughter Barbara Milligan and her husband Jerry, and her sons, Lou, Jr. and his significant other Caroline Connor and Michael Cintolo. She is also survived by 6 grandchildren Thomas Milligan, Michelle (Milligan) Baron, Katherine Milligan, Robert Cintolo, Timothy Cintolo and Laura Cintolo and 7 great-grandchildren Emma, Ryan and Cameron Milligan, Lucy and Jack Baron, Kristen and Owen Cintolo. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, family and friends, especially Phyllis and Cathy, who were an integral part of her care these last few years. Mary was pre-deceased by her parents, her brother Anthony Olmedi and sister Gina (Olmedi) Maccini.
Whether it be the countless hours she spent working alongside her husband, or shopping and enjoying a lobster lunch with her daughter, or watching a Red Sox game on tv with her sons, she always loved to be with her family. And her family always loved to be with her. Mary’s warm and loving nature will be missed but her memory and legacy will live on through her children.
Family and friends will honor and remember Mary’s life by gathering for visiting hours in the McCarthy, McKinney & Lawler Funeral Home, 11 Lincoln St. Framingham on Tuesday June 20th from 4-8PM. Her Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday morning in St. Linus Church, 119 Hartford St., Natick at 10 o’clock. Interment will follow in St. Stephen Cemetery, Framingham.
