FRAMINGHAM: Antoinette "Netta" J. (Chiumento) DeSimone, 99, of Framingham, born on June 27, 1920 to Carolina (Izzo) Chiumento and Joseph Chiumento, passed away peacefully Thursday Oct. 17, 2019. Beloved wife of the late Andrew DeSimone, devoted mother of: Andrea Hallion and the late Richard Hallion of Southborough, Christine McManus and husband Gregory McManus of Pocasset, Michelle Sampson and husband Christopher Sampson of Marion, and Michael DeSimone of Ashland. Sister of the late: Louis Varrichione, Alec Chiumento, John Chiumento, Mary Spagnuolo, Angie Gentilotti and Thomas Chiumento. She will be the forever loved Grandmother, known as Gammy, to her eight grandchildren: Robert Hallion, Elizabeth Hallion Baldelli, Laura McManus MacLachlan, Colleen McManus, Caroline McManus McPherson, Emily Sampson Neal, Christina Sampson and Jacqueline Sampson and her 18 great grandchildren: Andrew, Rocco, Alex, Adriana, Cormac, Connor, Sofia, Maeve, Henry, Aidan, Lily, Coal, Emery, Anayah, Finley, Angelina, Theodore and Selah-Simone.

The center of her world was her family, raising her children was her greatest accomplishment. She was an outstanding and generous cook, her kitchen was always open and all were welcome. She filled her days with sewing, gardening, knitting, cards, and in later years, bingo halls and playing the slots at Foxwoods. She was a proud member of the Framingham League of Women Voters, the Ladies Guild of St. Tarcisius Parish, and the Alliance for the Mentally Ill. She was known around town as the Lunch Lady of Framingham South High, the mother who rang the gong at Loring Arena every time her son Michael scored an ice hockey goal, which was often, and her famous pizza made from scratch. She was the first one to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. She was, by all accounts, the mother everyone wished was theirs.

The family would like to extend our gratitude for the loving care that the staff of St. Patrick's Manor provided her for many years.

“Gammie’s Pizza”. For 20 years there was the Apple Country Fair and Pig Roast at the McManus’s on Columbus Day weekend. Gammie would always bring her homemade pan pizza as an appetizer to sustain all the hungry workers, and while it was not the best pizza you every had that did not matter because it was the love and care that it was made with that really mattered. She was so proud of that pizza and seeing everyone eating and enjoying it. Gam was very kind to me and always treated me like extended family. Lots of Fond memories, Gary P. Wells
