FARULLA Lucy Ann (Henchey) Farulla, 78, of Quincy, formerly of South Boston, passed away peacefully at home on September 26, 2015, surrounded by her family. Lucy was the beloved mother of Jeanne Farulla of Whitman, Patricia Farulla of Quincy, and Catherine Frederick and her husband Warren Jr. of Braintree.

Lucy was employed at First National Bank of Boston where she retired in 1996, just in time to enjoy her grandchildren. She graduated from Gate Of Heaven High School in 1954, and immediately attended Boston Clerical School. Lucy graduated with highest honors from Massasoit Community College in 2012, alongside her grandson, Warren, and her sister, Grace. “Nahni’s” life was devoted to the unconditional love of her grandchildren, who adored her as much as she did them.
