She was an active communicant of St. Anthony of Padua Church and was a member of its Rosary Society. In 2018 Filomena was awarded the Boston Cane by the town of Williamstown recognizing her as their oldest resident. She was known for her artisanal cooking, everything being made from scratch. If you were lucky enough to have had a seat at her kitchen table, she would have served you some of the best tasting food that you had ever eaten. She was an incredible knitter and many of Filomena’s beautiful afghan blankets still keep people wrapped in her warmth today. She will be sadly missed.
