Claire Marie Errico (Freeman) passed away peacefully on November 2, 2020 at MaryAnn Morse Health Center, Natick after a declining period of health. Born on October 30, 1933, Claire was the daughter of the late Leon and Ruth Freeman and sister of the late Robert L. and Richard V. Freeman. She was the wife of the late Andrew A. Errico, who passed away in 2000. After graduating from Framingham High School, Claire worked at the Farmers and Mechanics Bank in Framingham which later became Framingham Savings Bank. Claire and Andy moved to Sherborn in 1956 where they spent their entire married life. Claire was an avid reader, she loved to sew, was a Bluebird Leader and Cub Scout Leader. She was an active member of Saint Theresas Parish in Sherborn. She was married to an Italian but was of French descent and loved to boast about her Italian cooking skills and rightfully so as she was a great cook and baker. Claire would shop till she dropped for clothes and shoes, loved to decorate the house with her ceramics for the holidays, and never missed her Wednesday hairdresser appointments. She eventually moved on to the Town of Framingham Board of Health where she worked until she retired in 1998. After selling the family home, Claire spent the rest of her years at Woodhaven in Sherborn, where she made many friends and entertained them with her sense of humor. She was a valued volunteer with the council of aging in Sherborn and an active member of the Woodhaven Community. Last year she moved to MaryAnn Morse Nursing home. Claire leaves behind her four children, Ann Errico Reading, Jane Johnson (Steve), Ruth Olson (Lars) and Andrew Errico (Donna), along with 11 grandchildren, Jen Minor, Sarah Salerno, Nicole Reading, Mark Reading, Thomas and Chris Harwood, Kate Johnson, Myles and Hannah Olson and Andrew and Sophie Errico. She was also the great-grandmother to Ryan Minor, Andrew and Catherine Salerno, Logan and Camden Harwood, Liam Orlando and Parker Reading. She also leaves behind several nieces and nephews and her sisters in law Minnie Errico and Margaret Freeman. Due to the current quarantine there will be no services at this time.

Dear Ruth, Anne, Jane, and Andy,
I am so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. She was a beautiful light in this world. When I was a kid, I loved being at your house when I was visiting Ruth. I loved visiting with your mom too. She had the best sense of humor! She would call me "Loorah" and then start cracking up! I will cherish my memories of your mom and will always remember the sound of her laughter.

May you all find peace knowing that your mom is resting at peace in Heaven.
Love you all,

To Ruth, Anne, Jane and Andy,
Your mom was a gift to this world. Her sense of humor was incredible! She and I would have laughing fits when I was over at your house with Ruth. She would call me "Loorah" and then crack up! I will keep her in my heart and will always remember the sound of her laughter.

May you all find peace knowing that your mom is resting in peace in Heaven.

Love you all,

To the entire Errico Family:
I first worked with Claire at Framingham Savings Bank, and then our paths crossed when we worked at the Town of Framingham. She was the nicest, and funniest person I had ever met. We became fast friends outside of work, enjoying meals out, movies, and her favorite ice cream.
She definitely left her mark on earth, and I'm sure she is happy in heaven.
May your memories comfort you at this sad time.

To the Olson Family: I am truly sorry for your loss. Claire seemed to be a true matriarch and a wonderful person. I would havr liked to have known her. But by her activism, I think I know her through Hannah. I know she rests in peace with the angels.
