Obituary For Lois D. Faustino

Lois D. (Guiliani) Faustino, 81 of Rockland passed away surrounded by loved ones on August 23, 2023. Daughter of the late Louis L. Guiliani and Virginia F. (Bolinder) Guiliani of Abington. Loving wife of John R. Faustino for over 51 years. Cherished Mother of Louis J. Faustino and his wife Amy of Mebane, NC and Elaina D. Faustino of Rockland. Adored grandmother of Madelyn Kidney, Grace Faustino, Rocco Faustino, Evelyn Faustino, and Gloria Faustino. She was a graduate of Abington High School, Class of 1960 and from The Chandler School for Women in Boston class of 1962.

Mrs. Faustino had been a past Worthy Advisor of Abington Rainbow for girls; member of the Tri-Town Eastern Star. She joined Sweet Adeline’s International at the age of 18 and enjoyed singing Barbershop Harmony. She had received a champion medal as a member of The Canton Chapter Sweet Adeline’s in 1969 when they were the North Atlantic Region 1 Champion Chorus. She had been the Choreographer and Chorus Manager of the North River Chapter of Sweet Adeline’s. She also was the Assistant Director of the Mass Bay Chapter of Sweet Adeline’s and had been the Director of The Island Grove Chorus of Sweet Adeline’s for three years. Then she became the Assistant Director, Chorus Manager, and past President of The Island Grove Chorus.

She was a medical secretary in the Radiology Department at Brockton Hospital, Cardinal Cushing Hospital, Goddard Hospital, and the Radiology Group of Greater Boston in Brookline. She also was the Secretary of David E. Barnes, DMD of Hanover for over seven years. From 1982 to 2002 she worked for the Rockland School System as a Bilingual Assistant Instructor for the Brazilian and Vietnamese students.

She was the smallest preemie to be born at the Brockton Hospital and survive in 1942 which made medical history. The nursing staff and pediatricians nick-named her LuLu. Every year she was seen at the Brockton Hospital until she graduated from college in June of 1962.

Her greatest joy was praising God through music. She often sang solos at church and belonged to several church choirs. Lois had such an infectious laugh that could be heard from a block away. She had the most sparkling of personalities. Everyone always enjoyed being in her presence. She was full of compassion for others, and always wanted to share the love and grace of Jesus with anyone who came her way. She loved being surrounded by her church family at the First Baptist Church of Weymouth. Her love of music brought her treasured friendships around the South Shore. She enjoyed being outside in God’s nature and listening to the birds sing while reading Scripture. She had this one request to be said, “This is not a time of sadness it really is a time of joy for me for I am thankful to be Glory Bound with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” Family and friends are invited to Mrs. Faustino’s Memorial Service on Saturday, September 2, 2023 at 11:00AM at The First Baptist Church of Weymouth.

As an expression of sympathy contributions can be sent to First Baptist Church of Weymouth, 40 West St., Weymouth MA 02190.

    I took care of Lois at the dialysis unit. She was a pleasure to care for. Her and John's love was something that almost made me tear up every time I saw them. She would sing songs and share some beautiful memories as well as talk about her family. She was very proud. Come to find out we used to attend the same church and my family was very fond of the Faustino's. I also found out I used to hang around her granddaughter all the time because we had the same baby sitter. Lois greatly impacted everyone she came in contact with. I am hurt by her loss and some people you just don't forget(her being one) but Im confident she's in a better place singing plenty of Frank Sinatra and eating lots of donuts. With so much love and support❤️

    I will never forget everything Lois has done for me. She treated me like I was part of her family, and I really felt like I was. We may have been annoying kids, but she always put up with us and loved us anyways. Love you forever Nana.

    I remember Lois always driving maddy and i around especially after school when we would hang out she would always take us to McDonalds and do whatever she could to make us happy and have fun, but she always had to be home before it got dark out lol❤️. We had such a fun relationship maddy and I would always joke with her and she would always have a good laugh it was our favorite.

    My nana was one of the most song filled and heart warming people i was blessed of having as my own grandmother. All of her hugs and tickles and back rubs will be so missed and her singing voice from the other room could always calm my soul. I wish she could take me with her but I know it's her time and we will meet again one day. I love you and miss you so much nanny until we meet again i'll hold the fort down and make you and the family so proud ❤️
