Jean Consiglio Lotuff
WORCESTER - Jean Consiglio Lotuff, 74, of Lehigh Acres Florida, formerly of North Brookfield, was called to eternal life surrounded by her loving family after a valiant fight with brain cancer.
She leaves her best friend and loving husband of 55 years, Robert G. Lotuff. She prided herself as mom of her daughters, Jodi Brenner and her husband Kerry of Worcester and Amy Law and her husband Keith of Brookfield. Her favorite role, though, was Gram to her seven grandchildren, Krystal O'Leary, Hanna Morris, Kyle and Sara Brenner, and Bobby, Anthony, and Sophie Law. The most recent objects of her affection are her two great-grandchildren Hank and Addie.
She leaves her two sisters, Gail and her husband Dennis Foley, and Jaycine Hedlund, and many loving nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her brother Peter A. Consiglio, Jr.
Jean was born in Worcester to her parents Wilna and Peter Consiglio, Sr. She attended North High School and later was employed for many years by her family's company Parker Metal Corporation.
A Cape Cod enthusiast, she spent many summers making memories boating and water skiing with her family and friends on Lewis Bay. When away from the coast, Jean relished in her farm life. She bred Morgan horses and traveled the country watching her daughters show them. A lover of all things crafty, she created countless memories with those who admired and shared her talents. Most recently, she enjoyed her Florida lifestyle watching the Boston Red Sox at spring training and shopping with friends.
Jean is admired by all for her incredible strength and positivity in the face of challenge. Her devotion to Saint Peregrine provided her much courage in her battle and her spirit very deeply touched all those fortunate enough to know her. There will always be a seat set for her at the table for Sunday macaroni dinners with her family as they toast "to the fight!"
Her family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University and the Rose Monahan Hospice Home for their exceptional and loving care.
Calling hours will be Thursday, June 29, from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Athy Memorial Home, 111 Lancaster St., Worcester. The funeral will be Friday, June 30, from the funeral home, with a Mass at 10 a.m. in St. John's Church, 40 Temple St., Worcester. Burial will follow in St. John's Cemetery, Worcester.
