Rosemary (Falletti) Bonisolli, of Hull, died on Oct. 4, surrounded by her loving family at home. She was 84.
Rosemary was born in Hingham on March 24, 1937, the second youngest among five brothers and seven sisters born to the Rocco and Carmella Falletti. She and her siblings learned at a young age the value of hard work and resourcefulness, having grown up on a large farm in her hometown of Hingham.
Also, through helping with her siblings, in the multitude of daily chores necessitated by farm life, Rosemary developed the ability to cook some of the most amazing Italian dishes. Her flair for Italian cuisine became legend among successive generations, namely her grandchildren.
In addition to her culinary art talents, Rosemary’s gardening skills produced an equally dazzling array of annual and perennial flowering plants, constantly attracting the attention and compliments of the local community and passersby.
Rosemary was married to Louis Bonisolli, a 30-year decorated Navy veteran of WWII and the Korean War, who died in 1977. She is survived by her son Robert and his wife, Susan, of Texas; son Roger and his wife, Debbie, of Wisconsin; daughter Christina, her fiancé Salvatore Auditore; and granddaughter Vivian, of Massachusetts. She also leaves her brother Salvatore (Lou) Falletti, of Massachusetts; several nieces and nephews; and her grandchildren, Aja, Robby, Anthony, Jay, and Jenna.
A funeral Mass will be held on June 3, 2022, at 10 a.m., at St. Paul’s Parish, 147 North St., Hingham, followed by a burial service at Blue Hills Cemetery in Braintree. See www.Keohane.com for directions and online condolences.
