Born in Worcester, Grace married and moved to Grafton where she raised her family and lived for 25 years. She worked at Kaman Corporation for many years as an administrative assistant. Upon retirement, she moved to Southborough.
Grace was regarded by all who knew her as an infinitely loving mother and grandmother with an unrelenting sense of humor and a generous and compassionate heart. She never missed an opportunity to brighten the day of everyone that she encountered with a kind word and a sweet smile. Grace’s lifetime was a splendid example of a life lived with unpretentious authenticity.

Anderson, III, Marie Skye Anderson both of Southborough and Taylor C. Caforio of Millbury; a brother, Dominic Constantino of VA; and many nieces and nephews. Grace’s husband, Oreste C.
