Lucy M. (Budano) Donisvitch, 86, of Worcester, passed away peacefully on Friday September 18, 2020 at Knollwood Nursing Center. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 47 years, Stanley J. Donisvitch, in 2004.

Lucy is survived by her loving children, Jane L. Donisvitch and her partner Richard Doherty, of Worcester, and Vincent P. Donisvitch and his wife LoriLee Berube-Donisvitch, of Kissimmee, Florida; three grandchildren, Hillary, Joshua, and Kayla Donisvitch; two sisters, Rita Smith, of Webster, and Amelia Belculfine, of Apache Junction, AZ; as well as many nieces and nephews throughout the states. In addition to her husband, Stanley, and her parents, John and Lucia (Cancelmo) Budano, Lucy was predeceased by her siblings: her twin, John Budano, Jr., Gus Mancini, Philly Mancini, Armando Mancini, Barney Mancini, Josie Budano, Mike Budano, Mary Budano, Amelia Budano, Ercolino Budano, Angie Budano, Lucy Budano, and Rita Budano.

Lucy was born, raised, and educated in Worcester, graduating from Sacred Heart Academy; then from David Hale Fanning Trade School, where she majored in Dressmaking. She worked for David Clark Company in Worcester, and later worked at ITT Suprenant in Clinton. She then retired from Colonial Press in Clinton.

Lucy lived in Auburn for over 40 years, during which she was a faithful communicant of North American Martyrs Church. Though she only resided at Kateri Tekakwitha Senior Housing for a short time, she loved attending Rev. Gee’s Masses and interacting with the other residents.

In her free time, she enjoyed babysitting her grandchildren, arts and crafts, playing bingo, and travelling, especially to Graceland, Disney World, Minnesota Mall, Niagara Falls, California, Las Vegas, Arizona, and many more. Lucy also enjoyed volunteering with the Salvation Army for several years.

Though flowers are welcomed, memorial donations may be made to your local Alzheimer’s Association chapter (alz.org/donate).

Lucy’s funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 AM on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at North American Martyrs Church, 8 Wyoma Drive, Auburn, MA, followed by burial in Hillside Cemetery, Auburn. Please proceed directly to church. Masks and social distancing measures will be required at church and cemetery.
