Patricia Ann (McCallum) Maglio of Pelham, NH formally of Tewksbury,MA
Patricia Ann( McCallum) Maglio, of Pelham, NH, died early Friday morning May 13, 2016 at home surrounded by her loving and caring family. Patty was the wife of Kenneth P. Maglio with whom she was married for 47 amazing years. Born on January 12th, 1950, she was the daughter to the late Donald R. and surviving Rita “Grace” (Dyment) McCallum of Tewksbury. Patty was raised in Tewksbury and graduated Tewksbury Memorial High School with the class of 1967. She continued on to graduate from Lowell State Teachers College in 1971 earning a BA in Education.
Patty retired from Sovereign Bank on Lakeview Avenue in Dracut in 2012. She was a communicant of the Immaculate Conception Church in Lowell and loved listening to Rev. Nicholas Sannella’s Homolies every Sunday morning. Patty was quick to befriend others with engaging conversations, humorous wit and the best smile . . . whether a close friend of many years or those only with brief interactions, she found sincere interest and excitement in the celebration of people and their stories. She had true relationships and bonds that carried on throughout her lifetime...loved by all!
She was the builder and creator of many happy childhood memories . . .often referred to fondly as “crazy”. Piling up kids in the car to be off for an adventure to the beach or Canobie Lake (enjoying the roller coasters maybe even more than the kids). She was a planner and participant of fun - trips to Hampton Beach, Sugarloaf, North Conway, Aruba, Hawaii, NYC, Bermuda and annual trips to Disney World.
In addition to her husband Kenneth and mother Grace, Patty is survived by her children, Joe and Melissa Maglio, Lynda Maglio, Dawn and Greg Hannes, and Marybeth and Ben Goldman, grandchildren, Mia, Jake, Allura, Zack, Ty and Sienna, sisters, Donna Gale and Linda Moore, her aunt Pauline Silva, and many cousins, nieces and nephews. She was looking forward to joining her late father, Donald McCallum, her aunt Louise McCallum and cousin Kerry McCallum.
