Arvlynne Ferrelli

July 5, 1947September 10, 2020

Arvlynne (Bud) Lundin Ferrelli passed away on September 10, 2020. She was born July 5, 1947 at York Harbor Hospital, York Harbor, Maine and grew up in South Berwick, Maine. She was born to Dr. Arvid R. Lundin and Sheila F. Lundin. Bud was their third daughter.

Bud was married to her true love, Michael G. Ferrelli on January 11, 1969.

Bud was employed by Northeast Electronics, Northern Telcom, and Exacom, from which she retired. Throughout her life, Bud remained passionately devoted to her family, to her friends, and to her job. She worked tirelessly to put her two daughters through college, while working full time, and being the full time caregiver of her husband. Bud’s favorite word was “integrity,” and her favorite phrase was “kindness matters.” She lived her life according to these two principles and was a true friend to all. She was the very proud grandmother (Grandy) of Maxwell Phillips, Alexander Phillips, Amelia Phillips, and Eoin Stanton, all who she loved deeply.

Bud is survived by her two daughters, Angela (Matthew Phillips) of Warner and Alexandra (Thomas Stanton) of Manchester; her middle sister, Julianne (Richard Rain), her brother and sister-in-law, William Ferrelli and his wife, Anne of South Carolina, and brother-in-law, Jerry Croteau of North Carolina; several nieces, nephews, grand nieces, and grand nephews, as well as cousins. She also leaves behind many special friends, Linda, Jane, Crystal, Hal, Laurie, and Ginny, as well as her dear dog, Truman. She is predeceased by her husband, Michael G. Ferrrelli; her older sister, Suzanne and her sister-in-law, Nancy Ferrelli Croteau.

A service and a celebration of life will be held at a later date, once it is safe to gather again.

In lieu of flowers, Bud asked that donations be made in her memory to Live and Let Live Farm at https://www.liveandletlivefarm.org, a charity that was near and dear to her heart.

My Aunt Bud was (is) an amazing lady. She raised two amazing women whom I am proud to call my cousins. She took care of her husband for years and years. She loved dogs. She was truly one of the nicest people I ever knew. Although my only correspondence with her for the past few years was via text messages and holiday cards back-and-forth, she definitely left an already nearly palpable hole right in the center of my current and especially my childhood memories. Rest in Peace, Aunt Bud. I will think of you often. I wonder if you knew how much I did even before September 10th, 2020.

Angie and Allie,
Your mom was such a wonderful person. I was so lucky to be able to work with her and get to know her so well. I truly looked forward to our visits, as she became a great friend.
She loved her family dearly, and her grandchildren were her greatest gifts. I will miss spending time with her , and of course Truman

Praying for peace and comfort for you both and your families.

My dearest cousins and Auntie Julie. I am so very sorry for the loss of Auntie Bud. She was without doubt one of the most beautiful people I have ever had the privilege to know. You are so fortunate to have been Her daughters and sister. And there are so many that are better people for having known your parents.

Dear Alexandra and Angela,
I send my heartfelt condolences to you and your families. I shall miss my dear friend so very much. We went through school together from kindergarten to high school and then on to college. We shared so many great times together. She was such a steadfast, strong and wonderful friend.

Your mother loved you and your families ever so much. She was very proud of you and most thankful to have two daughters who loved her dearly. And her grandchildren were the apples of her eyes!

"Those who weave color into our lives leave us with a tapestry of beautiful memories." And that is exactly what she did so very well. Bless her and may she rest in peace . XO Ginny
