Known as Milly to friends and family, she was the daughter of Antonietta (Zizza) and Pasquale Palermo.  For 30 years Milly was the loving wife of Dominic D’Arrigo who passed over 40 years ago. She is the beloved mother of Mariann Mohan and her husband, Thomas; Christine D’Arrigo (deceased), and Dominic D’Arrigo.  Grandmother to Lisa Bhagirathy and her husband Neil; David Mohan and his wife Amy, and Mackenzie Sheehan-D’Arrigo.  Great grandmother to Jack and Kate Bhagirathy and Smith Mohan.  One of six children, she is survived by her brother Charles Palermo and her sister-in-law, Beverly Palermo. Milly was predeceased by her brother Joseph and his wife Ann, brother Anthony and his wife Peggy, sister Rose Jacobs and her husband Bill, sister in-law Dolly Palermo, and brother John.  Milly is also survived by many friends, cousins, nieces and nephews. 

Milly was born in Revere and lived with her family in the Boston area until her marriage when she moved to Quincy where she resided for over 60 years.  During that time, she was a devoted Catholic at Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s parishes, a member of NARFE, volunteer in the Parents- to Parents program, and an excellent pool player. When she wasn’t cooking, Milly was always ready for a good game of cards and could often be found crocheting or solving word search puzzles.  In the last years of her life Milly was well cared for and loved by the compassionate staff at Liberty Commons in Chatham.

Milly supported many causes.  Donations in her memory can be made to the charity of your choice.
