Victoria Grayce (LoVetere) Driscoll, 102, of Kensington, passed away peacefully at home on Sept. 15, 2021 with her loving family by her side.   She was born on Nov. 13, 1918 in East Boston, Mass., a daughter of the late Anthony and Rose (Guadagno) LoVetere, and the wife of the late William J. Driscoll of 49 years. 

She was the youngest of 10 children and was named Victoria because she was born on the day WWI ended.

Victoria graduated from Girls’ Latin in Boston, Mass., before moving to Kensington to work for her brother’s (Dr. A. LoVetere’s) office. Family and friends were very important to her and she enjoyed the years working in her husband’s pharmacy in Kensington, teaching at her Nursery School Jack & Jill.  Grayce loved teaching and would always say “there were no bad kids just on the wrong track.” She loved decorating her home for the Holidays, was an Avid UConn girls basketball fan, loved going to the N.B. YMCA with her late friend Ann Motyka, and was a member of St. Paul Church Kensington for 39 years where she loved to participate in the annual Minstrels. 

She is survived by her son: William J. Driscoll and daughter-in-law: Marilyn, her three grandchildren: William (Lisa) Driscoll, Daniel Driscoll & Jennifer Parmelee, seven great grandchildren: two great-great grandchildren: and several nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her sisters: Rose, Josephine, Mary, and Marietta and her brothers: Anthony, Angelo, Dominic and John.

Family and friends are invited to call at the Berlin Memorial Funeral Home, 96 Main St., Kensington on Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021 from 11 to 12 noon, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 12:30 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Church, 195 South Main St., New Britain.
