March 17, 1929 ~ April 7, 2022 (age 93)


Gerry Ciccone, age 93, of Leominster passed away surrounded by her loved ones on April 7, after a lengthy illness. She is survived by her sons, Paul and wife Jan Ciccone of Peterborough, NH, Salvatore and wife Sandra Ciccone of Pepperell, MA and Dr. Charles and wife Lydia Ciccone of Pensacola, FL; six grandchildren, Matteo, Joseph, Marc, Michael, Carlie, and Alex Ciccone and great granddaughter, Sofia. She is also survived by her sister, Rose Fortier and husband Raymond, sisters-in-law, Pauline Sala, Mary Nelson, Pauline Ciccone, Vita Ciccone and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased in October by her husband, Matteo Ciccone shortly after celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary. She was also predeceased by her parents, Salvatore and Frances Sala, and siblings, Charles Sala, Joseph Sala, and Anna Cordio. 

Gerry was loved by many and truly embraced her Sicilian heritage with love of family and friends. She devoted her life to raising her family and sharing her love with all who crossed her path. Her door was always open and her home warm and welcoming to anyone who stopped for a visit. She was also proud of her family’s contributions to the community of Fitchburg. Gerry fostered education combined with love of family to her three sons. She was very active in her Church, St. Anna’s, and worked for many years in the Leominster School system as a Nurse’s Aide. Her laughter, smiles, and warm personality will be missed by many.

The family would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Staff at Burbank Oncology Center, Hospice of Leominster Hospital and to Mom’s exceptional physicians. We are also grateful for the outstanding care lovingly given by family and friends which allowed Mom to live in dignity in her home. We would also like to thank Father Carlos of St. Anna’s for all of his prayers and home visits.

We remember her Motherly love, guidance and principles for living a fulfilling life. Memorial contributions in her name can be made to St. Anna’s Church, 194 Lancaster St., Leominster.

The funeral Mass will be held Thursday, April 21, at 11:00 AM at St. Anna’s Church, 194 Lancaster St., Leominster.  Calling hours are private.
