Obituary for Irene J. Zicconi

Irene Josephine Zicconi of Arlington and Naples, Florida, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends on November 27 at Massachusetts General Hospital following a long illness. Irene was born on January 30, 1940 in Somerville and moved to Arlington, where she lived most of her life, shortly after getting married. In retirement, she split her time with her husband between Arlington and Naples, Florida.
She is survived by her beloved husband of 58 years John B. Zicconi; her two children John Zicconi of Shelburne, VT and James Zicconi of Naples, FL; as well as granddaughter Kelci Zicconi and grandson J. Dylan Zicconi, both of Naples, FL; brother Carl Ricci and his wife Karen Ricci of The Villages, FL; daughters-in-law Joannah Ralston of Shelburne, VT and Kim Zicconi of Naples, FL; and sister-in-law Jeanette Campbell of Mashpee.
The daughter of the late Carlo and Theresa Ricci of Somerville, Irene graduated from Somerville High School in 1957. She was extremely generous. There is nothing she wouldn’t do for friends or family. She was a devoted Patriots fan, lover of animals especially her precious poodle Maggie, avid card player, and a beloved Noni to her grandchildren.
A wake in Irene’s honor will be held from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday at Keefe Funeral Home in Arlington. Relatives and friends invited. Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday at St. Agnes Church in Arlington, followed by entombment at Woodlawn Cemetery in Everett. To send an online condolence visit
