Theresa Bombardieri, helped run popular Dorchester bakery
On March 17, 1963, Theresa Bombardieri and her husband opened a bakery and superette that became a fixture in their Dorchester neighborhood. And the Bombardieris almost always could be found behind the cash register and deli counter of a business that they kept open every day of the year. Mrs. Bombardieri, matriarch of a family of six children who each took a turn working at the superette while growing up, died of an aneurysm Dec. 5 in her daughter’s Kingston home, where she lived. She was 93.
