REMEMBERING STEPHANIE MERCANDETTI
It is with deep sorrow that I share with you that our beloved member, Stephanie Mercandetti, has passed away today (Jan 14, 2018), having courageously battled cancer for several months. She is remembered by all as a warm, joyful and compassionate woman whose giving and positive nature touched our lives and our community. Stephanie was soon to become a life member of the Framingham Democratic Town Committee, having served for almost twenty years, formerly as our Vice-Chair and as a Democratic State Committee member. She will be sorely missed by all. Our Committee sends its most sincere condolences to her family, friends and to all who shared in her life.
