OBITUARY: Lisa M. Nocco, 54

WILMINGTON, MA — Lisa M. Nocco, age 54, a selfless caregiver throughout her life, died peacefully at her home, Tuesday morning, April 17, from an apparent heart attack. Lisa had battled Crones disease, and other related health issues most of her adult life.

She was born in Lowell, the daughter of M. Roberta (Pace) (Nocco) Deputat of Tewksbury and the late George A. Nocco, and was step-daughter of John W. Deputat. Lisa was raised in Tewksbury and Chelmsford, and graduated from Chelmsford High School with the Class of 1982. She had lived in Tewksbury for most of her life. When in better health, she worked as a phlebotomist at area hospitals and clinics. Lisa, best described as possessing a “Big Heart,” was a lifelong care-giver, who worked tirelessly to help anyone in need, bringing food or driving people to medical appointments or the store. With little treasure to share, she gave from her soul, and embodied the spirit of Christianity. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.

Besides her mom and step-dad, she leaves her brothers, Steven A. Nocco and his wife Janinne (Milo) of Tyngsboro, Joseph R. Deputat of Tewksbury, Michael J. Deputat and his wife Nikki (Scheurich) of Freemont, NH, Christopher S. Deputat and his partner Tammy Farmer of Dracut; her nieces and nephew, Kyle and Kristine Nocco, Emma, Cassie and Molly Deputat; and many beloved aunts, uncles and cousins.
