Obituary for Fannie B Knott (Andreola)

Fannie B  Knott (Andreola)
Fannie (Andreola) Knott, 90, of Frances Gardens, Shrewsbury passed away on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 after a sudden decline in her health. She passed quietly at the home of her daughter, surrounded by her family, as well as some of her oldest and dearest friends.

Fannie was born on May 11, 1928 in Brooklyn, NY to her parents, John and Margaret (Barbella) Andreola. She was the last surviving child, predeceased by 10 brother and sisters. Her husband, the late Richard Knott, moved her from Brooklyn to Massachusetts in 1962. Where he quickly learned, ‘You can take the girl out of Brooklyn but you will never take Brooklyn out of the girl’, Fannie lost her husband Richard in 1987.

She leaves three daughters, Barbara Bianco and her husband Stephen, Elizabeth Smith and her husband Norman, both of Shrewsbury and Sandra Finelli of Swampscott. She also leaves behind four Grandchildren, Nina Stively of Purciville, VA, Dmietri and Alexia Finelli of Swampscott and Ian Smith of Shrewsbury. Fannie leaves behind a large list of special family and friends to whom she had touched their lives in a special way.

Most of her working years where spent doing what she loved to do best, cooking. She was employed at Calvary Retreat House for 14 years. Prior to that, she cooked at Shrewsbury nursing home.

Fannie treasured the time spent with her family and friends. She was a passionate Yankee’s fan, avid reader, and enjoyed feeding the people she loved. She will especially be remembered for her eggplant parmesan. She also enjoyed Bingo at Foxwoods (or any place else for that matter), playing cards with friends and helping anyone in need.
Special thanks to the staff at UMass Hospital along with Jewish HealthCare Hospice for making her last days comfortable.

A graveside service will be held at a later date under the direction of BRITTON-SHREWSBURY FUNERAL HOME. Memorial donations may be made to
St. Anne’s Church, 130 Boston Turnpike, Shrewsbury, MA 01545.

Dio ti bendica, Mamma.
