Eleanor S. (De Filippo) Emond, 88, of Kingston, Mass., died Wednesday, April 22, 2020, at The Inn at Silver Lake assisted living facility.

Born in the Bronx, N.Y., on September 25, 1931, to the late Francisco and Elisa (Leo) De Filippo, she was raised in the North End and graduated from the Practical Arts High School in Roxbury. Over the years, she resided in Dorchester, Randolph, Milton, West Bridgewater, Bradenton, Fla., and Kingston.

Eleanor served as president of Astrovision of New England, Inc. that she and her late husband founded. She previously worked at her parents’ pizza shop, Flips, in the North End and she owned the Elephant House ice cream shop in Dorchester.

She enjoyed playing poker and rummy with family, bingo with her sisters, crossword puzzles, family parties, and vacationing in the Bahamas where many fun memories were made. She was also an avid reader, seamstress, and an unbeatable Scrabble player. More recently, she showed a love for painting and crafts. Eleanor was a loving mother, grandmother, auntie, and wife. She was always willing to listen and offer her wisdom and support. She will be remembered for her unconditional love, kindness, and compassion.

Beloved wife of the late Edward W. Emond and former wife of the late Rafiaele A. Mazzucco, she was the devoted mother to the late Pamela A. (Mazzucco) Poisson, the late Antonio R. Mazzucco, and Rafiaele A. Mazzucco; loving grandmother of Rafiaele Mazzucco, Christopher A. Poisson, Leanora (Poisson) Fraser, and Antonio L. Mazzucco; and cherished great-grandmother of seven great-grandchildren. She was the youngest and last of 15 siblings to pass and is survived by many nieces and nephews.

In light of current events, a celebration of life and burial service will be held at a later date.

Auntie Eleanor what is there to say, you were with all of us from the beginning. You were the Matron Of Honor when I married. You followed the ambulance that Easter Monday morning when I was about to have my son Jimmy.

We played together as young children you put me in your doll carriage. You hid me in the car when we drove by the family restaurant in the North End of Boston. Your older brother ( my father) was standing outside. You were supposed to be watching me upstairs in the family apt over the restaurant! You and I have laughed over that one particular incident every time we got together.

We played in the wind cellar in the family home, we turned on the spigot on the oak barrel we forgot when we left to shut it off. Grandpa was out of his mind we never got yelled at. But we were banned from the wine cellar.

Aunt El so many great memories. I try not to cry that we won’t see each other anymore. Why would I cry when you are happy now and forever with all those you missed and loved, especially your Pamela and Tony. I would never call you back from that joy. Kiss them all for me.

You were so loved. All of your nieces and nephews have a story we will share with your grandchildren at your memorial. I know that when someone whispered she is gone, there was a joyous “here she comes” from far above us!!

I have our memories to comfort me!

Love to infinity,


Arlene Bonura
