LEOMINSTER -- Lucille A. DeMattei, 91, formerly of Valley View Road, died Wednesday, October 10, 2012, at Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley, Littleton.
Miss DeMattei was born in Brooklyn, NY, on June 7, 1921, a daughter of James and Virginia (Fusco) DeMattei. A long-time resident of Brooklyn, she lived in Wethersfield, CT in the mid-1970s before moving to the Whalom District of Leominster upon her retirement in 1981.
She was a Leominster resident for over 20 years, and had been an active parishioner at Our Lady of the Lake Parish in Leominster and worked for several years in the rectory there.
Miss DeMattei received her associate degrees in accounting from Brooklyn College, Brooklyn, NY. She worked as a bookkeeper at AMF for 40 years.

She was the sister of the late Anthony R. DeMattei of Newtown, CT and the late James DeMattei of Anderson, SC.
