Fay Fontes will be remembered for her kindness, friendliness, and her generosity. I did not know her very well, but whenever i came down to visit my Dad in Massachusetts, the times I spent with Alissa and her were special. She always made me feel very welcome and always had a nice warm smile and good things to say about her son and grandchildren. The world has lost such a beautiful and kind soul, but heaven has gained an angel indeed. Fay will be missed and my deepest condolences go out to the family.

Fay was a very sweet lady. I used to go over and see her with her granddaughter Alissa. She used to try and feed me all different kinds of food. She was my adopted grandmother. She adored my husband even though she only met him once. She used to tell me all the time that I picked a perfect guy. Fay will be missed so much.

So sorry to hear of Fay’s passing. She was a good friend of my dad and step mother. Wm and Addie Curt. What a sweet, sweet lady well loved by her grandchildren and all who knew her.

Fay was a wonderful lady who was the best hostess ever to anyone that came to her house. She had the best cheese and crackers, American chop suey, and my son swore by her tuna sandwiches! I've known her since I was a little girl. She was a family friend and I remember walking from my childhood home in North Plymouth to her forever home where she would cut some of my family's hair. She was a lovely person and we shared some laughs throughout the years. Every time I would see her she would talk about the time we sat at the 4th of July parade together and had the best spot under a big tree. She is now with her husband, family and friends that she has missed that passed before her. Rest In Peace Fay Fontes. Forever Brandi from Kingston.
