September 30, 1921 ~ November 17, 2018 (age 97)

Eva E. (Spurio) Risotti, 97, died Saturday November 17, 2018, after a short period of failing health. She was the wife of the late John M. Risotti, Sr. who passed away in 2012. They were married for 67 years. She was born in Somerville, the daughter of the late Henry and Maria (Voldolini) Spury and lived in Marlborough for the past 73 years.

Eva was devoted to her family and will be remembered for her endless kindness and loving heart. Eva loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She built strong traditions with them like making raviolis, baking Italian cookies, and coloring Easter eggs. She and her late husband could always be found at one of their many activities. She enjoyed vacationing with her sisters and brother-in laws at Cape Cod each summer. Some of her fondest memories were playing cards on Saturday night with “the gang”.
