Elizabeth "Betty" (Stone) Mainolfi
Elizabeth (Betty) Mainolfi, age 84 and wife of the late Donato (Rin) Mainolfi, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 11, 2018, in Concord, MA.
Betty was born in Lancaster, NH, on December 18, 1933, the daughter of the Rev. Merle and Esther (Perkins) Stone. She and Rin were married in 1958 and settled in Claremont, NH, where they raised their two children.
As a homemaker, Betty enjoyed cooking, decorating and gardening and was an accomplished seamstress, making custom clothing and the occasional wedding gown for her clients. In retirement, she was an avid reader, a creative painter and always had a knitting project on her needles. In 2015, she moved to Acton, MA, to live with her daughter, Donna, and her son-in-law, Glen. She enjoyed spending time with her family and loved her daily companions, Luna and Bodhi, the Kaufmann family dogs.
Betty is survived by her son, Daniel J. Mainolfi; her daughter, Donna (Mainolfi) Kaufmann and son-in-law, Glen Kaufmann. She was the loving grandmother of Eric Kaufmann of Redondo Beach, CA; Emily Mainolfi of Montgomery, AL; Andrew Kaufmann of Manhattan, NY; and Alexander Mainolfi of Brooklyn, NY. She will be greatly missed by all her family and friends.
