Antonetta C. Costigan

Antonetta (Netta) C. Costigan, 89, of Amesbury, formerly of Lynnfield, passed away on Sunday, December 17th at Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport. 

She was born on July 24, 1934, and was the daughter of Rosario and Damiana (Viola) Falzone of Revere. She was a graduate of Revere High school and an employee of John Hancock in Boston before starting a family.

A true family matriarch, she was not only the mother of three, but the “honorary mother” to many nieces, nephews, and friends of her children.  She was the center of holiday and family celebrations, and everyone was welcome in her home.  She was proud to feed anyone and everyone who passed through her doors with home cooked Italian foods and her renowned “Netta Wings”. She dedicated her adult life to her husband and family and was happiest when she could be relaxing in Sunapee, NH or playing poker at Foxwoods Resort.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 67 years, Edward F. Costigan, and three children, Edward T. Costigan and his partner Elizabeth Pickering of Brookline, Patricia Moore and her husband Mark of Newburyport, and Michael Costigan of Newfields, New Hampshire. She is also survived by 7 grandchildren and one great-grandchild, many loving nieces and nephews and her sister Concetta Cecere.  She was predeceased by beloved brothers Salvatore Falzone and Michael Falzone as well as her beloved sister Rose Racana.

Her Funeral Mass will be celebrated in St. Adelaide Church, 708 Lowell Street, West Peabody on Friday December 22 at 10:30 a.m. Visitation for relatives and friends will be held at the McDonald Funeral Home, 19 Yale Ave, Wakefield on Thursday December 21 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers expression of sympathy can be sent to Catholic Charities, 117 N Common Street, Lynn MA   02902.
