HAVERHILL - Brenda J. (Eafalla) Azzarito, 77, of Haverhill, passed away unexpectedly on February 1, 2022 at her home. She was predeceased by her husband, Nicholas J. Azzarito in 1986.
Born in Haverhill, Massachusetts, daughter of the late Albert (Chuck) Eafalla and the late Agnes Panaro Eafalla, she was raised and educated in Haverhill. After graduating from Haverhill High School in 1962, she obtained her cosmetology degree from Essex Agricultural School and worked as a stylist for a number of years in Haverhill. Subsequently, she had a career in banking at Bank of America (formerly Haverhill National Bank) where she earned many honors and awards for her work until her retirement in 2012.
Brenda loved to travel in her younger years and enjoyed shopping, crafting, reading, and volunteer work throughout her life. She generously lent her time and efforts to many local causes, including United Way, Red Cross, Catholic Women’s Club, and the Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts of America. She also served on the Board of Directors for the YWCA and Griffin White Home.
Most important to Brenda were her family and friends. Brenda demonstrated her unconditional love through her generosity and willingness to help those around her. Her ultimate pleasure was to see her family become the best possible people they could be and always enjoyed “getting along, getting together and being together.”
