Melba (Leone) DiLillo of Norwell and Quincy, died July 7, 2013, at the age of 94. Melba was a resident of Quincy before moving to Southwood at Norwell Nursing Center 10 years ago where she received wonderful care, especially from Linda, Minnie and Ashley. She was a die hard Red Sox fan and enjoyed bingo and playing cards with friends. Most of all, Melba cherished spending time with her family. She was the loving daughter of the late Frank and Giovannina (Sacchetti) Leone; loving mother of Jerry DiLillo and his wife Pat of Weymouth; cherished "Nonie" of Jennifer and Michael DiLillo of Weymouth and Mark DiLillo and his wife Amy of Plymouth; and Great Nonie of Austin DiLillo of Plymouth; sister of Elia Mansani, Edith Leone, Rena Pizzi, Vera Leone, all of Quincy, and the late Elvira Leone and Frank "Bebee" Leone. Also survived my many nieces and nephews. Visiting hours were held July 10, from 10:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the McDonald Keohane Funeral Home, at 809 Main St. (Rte. 18 opp. So.
