BARRE- Fannie M. (Maio) Simeone, 92,passed away peacefully on April 10, 2021 at the Quaboag Rehabilitation and Skilled Care Center in West Brookfield.

Fannie is survived by two sons, Gary (wife Susan) of West Brookfield and Robert (wife Marlene) of Barre; a daughter-in-law Lynda Simeone of West Boylston; 5 grandchildren, Jeffrey, Jennifer, Rebekah, Andrew and Therese Simeone, their spouses/partners, and a great granddaughter Emelia Simeone; her sister Angelina Jolly of Milton, GA; brothers Nunziato Maio of Portland, CT, and Anthony Maio of Paxton; many nieces & nephews; family (both locally and in Italy) and friends. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Amerigo (April 9, 2020) and a son Michael (April 2, 2010).

Born on September 18, 1928, she was the daughter of Filippo and Rosa (Orlando) Maio. A lifelong resident of Barre, Fannie graduated from Barre High School in 1946. She continued her education and graduated from Salter Secretarial School in Worcester. She married her sweetheart Amerigo ("Mike") in 1951. While raising their family, she was employed briefly by the former Barre Wool Combing Co. and then by the former H.H. Brown Shoe Co. of Worcester as Executive Secretary for over 27 years until the company closed. She continued employment as an Office Manager at Hardwick Laminators in Gilbertville, retiring in 1999.

Thorng Post 404), and a frequent participant at the Barre Senior Center, serving with her husband on numerous volunteer events and efforts.

In their retirement years, Fannie and Mike enjoyed vacation time with siblings and spouses, sight-seeing day trips, trips to naval reunions, and 2 trips to Italy visiting relatives on both occasions.
