Of Winthrop, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 10, 2019 at the Leonard Florence Center in Chelsea, MA. She was 81 years old.
Born in Newton to the late Lawrence and Theresa (Yerardi) DeLuca, she was raised in West Newton and was a 1955 graduate of St. Bernard’s High School. Elizabeth received all of her sacraments at Saint Bernard’s Church in West Newton and was married to the love of her life, Charles A. Bradley on October 26, 1958. Shortly after marrying she moved to Waltham, where she spent 10 years and finally settled in Winthrop in 1970, where she has been a resident ever since.
Her church was very important to her as she was a volunteer and Eucharistic Minister at Holy Rosary Church in Winthrop. She participated in many church activities, including organizing the annual Turkey Drive. She has been affectionately referred to as a “Distributor of Love”. Liz greatly enjoyed living by the ocean, traveling, decorating, arranging flowers, and most of all spending time with her family and loved ones.
She was the beloved mother of the late Lawrence G. Bradley, and sister of the late Marilyn Prizio and Lawrence DeLuca, Jr. Besides her husband, Elizabeth is survived by her devoted daughters Diane Tricomi and her husband Bruce of Marstons Mills, Kristen Bradley and her husband Neil Desmond of Methuen, her daughter-in-law Sandra Bradley of Winthrop, her sisters Lorraine DeLuca and her husband Thomas Kavanaugh of Revere, and Carol Wilson and her husband James of New Jersey, her cherished grandchildren Brad Tricomi of New York, Theresa Tricomi of Marstons Mills, Alexandra Bradley of New York, and Genevieve Bradley of Boston, her nieces and nephews John and James Daley, Lynn Benson, Denise Morelli, Russell and Douglas Kavanaugh, as well as many great nieces and nephews.
