Ellen M. (Tracchia) Shaw, 72, of Peabody, passed peacefully on Wednesday April 27 at the Brudnick Center for Living in Peabody following a brief illness.
Born in Peabody, she was the daughter of the late Quintino and Marion (Donnelly) Tracchia. She was raised and educated in Peabody and was a graduate of Peabody High School, class of 1965.

Tracchia and his wife Janine of Tampa, FL, her beloved grandchildren, Anthony Leno and his fiancé Sara Diogo, Matthew and Allen Leno, Jr, and by her great grandson, Michael Masela III, and by several nieces and nephews.
