Obituary for Sylvia A. Pulzetti

Sylvia A. (Riciputi) Pulzetti, 98, lifelong resident of Haverhill, passed away Monday February 5, 2018.

She was born July 30, 1919, daughter of Agostino and Paola (Zavatta) Riciputi. Sylvia attended Haverhill public schools, graduating in 1937. She was a 1940 graduate of the Nashua Memorial School of Nursing and spent her career at the Hale Hospital in Haverhill almost wholly as a maternity nurse.

She was predeceased by her husband of 64 years, Americo F. Pulzetti, who died in 2010, by her infant son Eugene, who died in 1947, by her sister Gianina (Riciputi) Lomazzo, who died in 2003, and by daughter-in-law Deborah (Clohecy) Pulzetti, who died in 2001.

She is survived by and will be greatly missed by her sister, Angelina Schepis; son, Louis Pulzetti, daughter-in-law Judith Pulzetti, son David Pulzetti and his wife Kay Brown Spofford; five grandchildren, Melissa Janvrin, Jennifer Leighton, Maria Pulzetti, Jessica Nguy and Adam Pulzetti and nine great-grandchildren. Unwavering dedication to her family was central to Sylvia's life.

Sylvia was a member of Sacred Hearts Parish in Bradford and, along with Americo, served as a Eucharist Minister there. Her involvement with the parish school includes teaching Sunday School classes, fund raising work and seamstress work for parish plays. For much of her life, she made daily visits to the church.

Sylvia's family gratefully acknowledges the superb care given by the Baker-Katz Nursing Home over a period of four years.
