LEOMINSTER---Elizabeth A. (Brooks) DePasquale, 82 years old of Leominster, died Friday, December 21, 2018 in her home surrounded by her beloved family after a courageous, hard fought battle with cancer. She is survived by her loving husband of 60 years Alfred S. DePasquale, her 6 children Maria McInerney and her husband Kevin of Leominster and their daughter Kara, David DePasquale and his wife Tamara of Chatham and their children Courtney and Brian, Susan Tourigny and her husband Norman of Fitchburg and their sons Gregory and Alex, Teresa Veneziano and her husband Joseph of Leominster and their sons Joseph and Michael, Donna DePasquale of Plainville and her daughter Kaley, and Debra DePasquale of Leominster, a great granddaughter Sofia Veneziano, 2 sisters Janet Spear of New Hampshire and Nancine Brooks of Lunenburg, her sister-in-law Grace Ruberti of California, her cousin Helen Boucher, close friends Carol Dion, Linda Salvatelli, Josie Scaramuzzi, and Jeanette Roy. She was predeceased by her 3 brothers Charles Brooks, Richard Brooks and Dennis Brooks, and dear friend Ginny LeBlanc.

Elizabeth was born in Lynn on October 19, 1936, daughter of William M. and Cecile M. (Boucher) Brooks and graduated from Lunenburg High School. She had worked at the former Foster Grants Co. in Leominster for several years. Elizabeth was a member of St. Anna Parish in Leominster. For many years she enjoyed ballroom dancing with her husband and longtime friends. She had a passion for baking with her specialty being Italian cookies, apple squares and ricotta pie.

She was a selfless woman always putting others before herself. For many years while raising six children she also cared for her parents and later in life her beloved sister-in-law Rose.

Family was of utmost importance to her. She was filled with joy at every chance she had to be with them, especially her grandchildren & great granddaughter who all adored her.

We were so blessed to have such a strong, beautiful, loving, kind woman in our lives. We are forever grateful and will always carry her memory in our hearts.

Elizabeth’s family would like to thank Dr. Madhavi K. Toke and the staff at the Simonds-Sinon Regional Cancer Center in Fitchburg, as well as Paula Kalajian and the staff at Dr. Fraser’s office for their kind, loving, support during Elizabeth’s illness.

Elizabeth’s funeral Mass will be held on Friday, December 28th at 10 am in St. Anna Parish, 194 Lancaster Street, Leominster. Burial will follow in St. Leo’s Cemetery, Leominster.
