Virginia M. D’Orsi, 92, of Peabody, passed away Friday evening at the Brudnick Center in Peabody, following a brief illness. She was the wife of the late Louis D’ Orsi, who passed away in 1992. Virginia was born on September 8, 1927, in East Boston, daughter of the late Vittorio and Rosa (D’ Argenio)Pastore. She was raised and educated in East Boston, and was a graduate of Sacred Heart High School. She later moved to Everett where she raised her family with her husband Louis where they lived for 58 years. She is survived by her children, Diana D’Orsi of Peabody, Virginia D’Orsi of North Andover and Michael and his wife Anita D’Orsi of Peabody; her loving grandchildren, Abigail D’Orsi-Rocha and her husband Jhonatta, Brendan Pelissier, Samantha, and Alexandra D’Orsi of Peabody as well as many dear nieces, nephews, family and friends.

She later worked as a social worker for the Department of Welfare in Woburn, for over 10 years, until her retirement. In her spare time, she enjoyed traveling, both domestically and internationally with her husband, spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.
