Mary A. Bosa

June 13, 1928 — February 4, 2022

Mary A. Bosa, 93, of Berlin, NH, passed away on Friday February 4, 2022 at the St. Vincent de Paul Rehab and Nursing Center. She was born in Gorham, NH on June 13, 1928 the daughter of Francesco and Vincenza (Girardi) Cellupica of Italy and was a lifelong resident of the area. She graduated from Gorham High School with the Class of 1946 and married her husband, Rudolph D. Bosa, in 1949. She had been employed as a telephone operator for New England Telephone and also worked side by side with her husband at Rudy’s Market and the Pinkham Notch Shop. Mary was a member of St. Kieran Church, now Good Shepherd Parish, the St. Kieran Altar Guild and the Marie Riviere Association.

In previous years, Mary enjoyed her time playing cards with her brother-in-law and sisters-in-law, which always made for a spirited game. Mary was an avid New England and Boston sports fan, always watching the games, and adding her own sports commentary. Mary’s first love was her family and especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She could always be found at their games cheering from the stands. Mary was a wonderful cook and reveled in making sure all who visited her home were fed, whether with her homemade Italian cooking or treats from her sweets stash. Mary loved to have her family and cherished family friends over for Sunday dinners, which is a tradition that lasted the entirety of her life. Mary learned to drive later in life which served as a source of entertainment for her family. Mary enjoyed vacationing with her family in Island Pond, VT each summer and loved to sit and watch all the children around her, often becoming a Nonni to many. Mary was the center of the universe to her family who loved her dearly and her loss will be deeply felt.
