Phyllis R. (Sevelitti) Tentindo, beloved wife of the late Anthony Tentindo, passed away on Wednesday, July 3rd at her home.

She married her husband Anthony and moved to Medford to raise their family. Phyllis was a creative and talented individual. This was something she learned from her mother and passed down to her children and grandchildren. Phyllis loved creating. Her greatest enjoyment came from cooking. She especially loved making whatever her grandchildren's favorite dishes were. Phyllis could be found in her garden getting all the ingredients needed to make her specialties. She was a caring and loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She will be remembered for all the kindness she showed to not only her family, but the many people she got to know during her lifetime.

Phyllis is the devoted mother of Felicia Tentindo and Teresa Riffe. She is the cherished grandmother of Joshua, Zackary, Andrew, Nicholas and Matthew. The loving sister of Lena Ricci, Louis Sevelitti, the late Romeo Sevelitti and the late Joseph Sevelitti, Phyllis is also lovingly survived by nephews.
