Ann Theresa Maietta, 86, of Milford, MA peacefully passed away Thursday (June 15, 2023) at the Milford Regional Medical Center after a period of declining health.

Anna was a lifelong resident of Milford and a longtime communicant of Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Milford. She was faithful to her favorite charities including the St Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
In her younger years, Anna enjoyed spending time at the Maietta’s King Neptune Hotel in Hampton Beach, NH that her late brother, Nicholas Maietta owned and operated.

She also loved her summer vacations spent on Cape Cod with her daughter and granddaughter.
Anna could often be found sitting with a group of friends and family at the gathering spot in the front yard of her house, or sitting in her favorite chair at the kitchen table drinking a cup of coffee. Anna’s kitchen was welcome to all her loved ones and was open any time day or night. Anna had a love for cooking and baking. It was her passion to cook abundant meals for everyone she loved. She especially enjoyed baking her Italian cookies which she was well known for.
In her later years, Anna loved spending time cuddling on the couch with her grand-puppy Brandy on her lap to keep her warm. Anna will be remembered for her soft heart and strong will.
