Born on December 25, 1927 in Boston; daughter of the late John and Benedetta (Attardo) Zammito, Pauline was raised in Waltham and had been a resident of West Newton for many years before moving to the Manomet section of Plymouth.
Pauline attended Waltham High School and had been employed as a Loan Officer for the Guarantee First Trust Bank in Waltham, then BayBank, and retired from Bank of America.
Pauline had a strong faith in her God. She was an active and devoted parishioner of both Sacred Heart Parish in Waltham and Saint Bonaventure Parish in Manomet. She was a religious education teacher, Eucharistic minister, and a member of the Sacred Heart Church Holy Rosary Guild and sodality. She was a selfless person always wanting to help others first. She provided rides and home care for many of the elderly while she lived in Manomet.
In her spare time she enjoyed tending her vegetable and flower gardens, reading, doing crossword puzzles, traveling, and cooking. She truly loved being surrounded by her family at any and all family gatherings, large or small. Her nieces, nephews, grand nieces, and grand nephews were lovingly considered as her own children.
Pauline is survived by her devoted and loving sisters Josephine Galvagno of West Newton and Mary Bergantino of Watertown, and her 15 cherished nieces and nephews.
She was the dear sister of the late Frances O'Brien, John and Frank Zammito.
