Obituary for Mary M. Masini

Mary M. Masini, a long time resident of Milford, MI and Punta Gorda, Florida, died in the care of her family on Thursday, May 8, 2008 after a brief illness. She was 92 years old. Born in Michigan�s Upper Penninsula, in Houghton County, on June 12, 1915, Mary was the daughter of Carlo and Maria (Borgario) Yeavello. She was raised in Painesdale, Michigan and after graduation from high school finished her education to become a Registered Nurse.

On July 21, 1945 she married her longtime sweetheart, Alfred Masini who had just returned from his service in the US Navy during World War II. They lived at Fort Wilkins in the UP and Gogebic State Park where he began his lifelong career with the Department of Natural Resources before they moved downstate to one of their first homes, at Proud Lake near Wixom. In 1964 they moved to the home with the big front porch on Liberty Boulevard in Milford where they raised their growing family -- that home and that front porch always busy with friends and neighbors drawn by Mary and Al�s hospitality and good company. For years Mary worked the 11PM-7AM shift at Pontiac General Hospital so she could be home to get the kids off to school and there when they returned in the afternoon. In later years she worked with the Oakland County Health Department. After retirement, they spent more and more time in Punta Gorda -- family and friends visiting through the winters, always returning to Milford for family reunions through the summer.

Mary Masini was a woman of deep and abiding faith for whom the care of her family and the care of others were at the center of her life. She was an example to family and friends alike of a woman who lived by the two great commandments, to �love God and love your neighbor.�

She was preceded in death by her beloved Al, in January of 2007. She is survived by her loving daughters and sons: Maria, Diana, Alfred J. (fianc�e, Kerri), Charles (Monica) and Christina Masini. And by grandchildren, Tracie (Kevin), Denise, Chuck (Sandy), Christopher (fianc�e, Debra), Gino; and great-grandchildren, Andrew, Blake, Codey, Kayla, Taylor, Payton, Lauren, Brandon; sister Theresa (Yeavello) Bice in Iron River, Mi many nieces and nephews and extended family (Carmen and Jessica) and a host of friends who join with her family in mourning the death of a good woman and giving thanks to God for her life among them.

A graveside service will be held at Milford Memorial Cemetery at 11 AM on July 21, 2008 when Mary Masini�s ashes will be buried with those of her husband, Al�s, sixty three years since the day they were married.
