What's Going On
If you have ever attended a museum event, you have met Thomas Battinelli, who died on July 12, 2017 at age 88. Beloved husband of Museum Director Evelyn (Talmo) Battinelli, he has been one of the museum's most dedicated volunteers.
Tom was a respected Professor at Fitchburg State University from 1960-2004, and published three books on topics in Physical Education and Health. In his retirement, he enjoyed writing, reading philosophy and historical literature, caring for his grandchildren and volunteering at the Somerville Museum.
Donations in Tom’s memory may be made to the Somerville Museum, Thomas Battinelli Endowment Fund, One Westwood Road, Somerville MA 02143.
