Sheila M. Mastriano of East Falmouth died at her home on May 23, after a long illness. She was 66.
Ms. Mastriano was a physical therapist for the VNA of Cape Cod for 32 years.
She was interviewed for a 1988 Enterprise article about Girl Scouting and the increase in the popularity of the program that coincided with Ms. Mastriano's tenure as the service unit administrator for all levels of Girl Scouts in Falmouth. She noted that the prevailing focus of the scouting experience was away from home-orientated skills and toward career and self development, with a good deal of variety and the constant opportunity for girls to make their own choices about what they would like to do.
She said, "Scouting is offered as a girl's opportunity to realize her potential and to follow through on it. ... It can be a lasting relationship."
Ms. Mastriano also directed The Children's Choir in Christmas services at St. Anthony's Church for many years.
She leaves her husband, Frank L. Mastriano; four children, Kathleen, Christopher, Kerry, and Michael Mastriano; four siblings; and 10 grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her father, Joseph Losi.
A funeral Mass will be said on Wednesday, May 29, at 11 AM at St. Anthony’s Church, 167 East Falmouth Highway.
