In Our Care

Freedland, Patricia "Patti" (Filosi) of Winchester, July 10th at the age of 66. Loving and beloved wife of Mark Freedland. Devoted daughter of Evelyn (Aurelia) and the late Michael Filosi. She is survived by several aunts and uncles, in-laws Jean and Dick, Ruth and niece Karen.

Patti passed away at home, as she wanted, after a brief but brave battle with glioblastoma. The pain caused by her absence is expressed by her husband in the words of Lord Alfred Tennyson, "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."

Patti was a friend to so many. She brought a caring smile and warm heart to all those who knew her. Her last job as a cashier at a local supermarket was merely an outlet from which to spread her special kind of affection. Patti was known and loved by everyone who visited her at her register. She will be missed by all, and the world will be a little less bright for her passing.

The family thanks her caretakers at the various medical facilities that helped in Patti's cancer battle, especially Bernadette of Warm Hearted In-Home Care. Relatives and friends are invited to visit in the DeVito Funeral Home 1145 Mass. Ave., ARLINGTON on Thursday from 10-11 am and to a funeral home service at 11 am. Burial to follow in Wildwood Cemetery, Winchester. In lieu of flowers, please consider contributions to the American Cancer Society at or Glioblastoma Foundation at or PO Box 62066, Durham, NH 27715.
