Rose Mary (DeFrancesco) LaPorta, passed away peacefully, Monday, July 15th, at her residence in Pocasset, amongst her beloved family.  Rose Mary had been a lifelong resident of Medford up until recently, when she moved to Bourne to be closer to her daughters.

A dedicated wife and mother,  Rose and her husband took great joy in raising their children, always remaining very close to each other all throughout the years. As their daughters married and the grandchildren arrived, that was a wonderful time for all.  They took great pride in being involved in all of their educational, sporting and life’s adventures!  They had a ball! Holiday’s, birthday’s, graduations and weddings, their lives were all about family.

After the children were grown and out of school, Rose began working at the State Welfare Office in Medford Center, which she truly enjoyed working with her clients and colleagues.

Rose loved to  read!  Any genre, newspaper or journal, Rose was interested.   Playing the piano for enjoyment, painting beautiful landscapes and portraits were the mediums Rose was most relaxed!  Rose’s family, grandchildren and great grandchildren were the nearest and dearest, filling her life with an abundance of love and joy.  

Rose was the devoted mother of Lynda D. Murray Harding, her husband Richard T. of Humarock, Carla Ann Ferraguto, her husband James P. of Onset.  Adored grandmother of Francis H. Murray IV, Diana M. Nobrega, Tara Ann Murray, Colette Ann Burl and her husband Christopher Burl, and James P. Ferraguto Jr.   Great Grandmother of Christopher Murray, Tracy Murray, Jordyn Nobrega, Jacob Zompanti, Kailyn Nobrega, Ava Burl and Carolina Burl.    Loving great-grandmother of many additional step grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    I will never forget Auntie Rose and all the good times we had in Humarock.
    She was funny, fun, strong, loving, and took care of me and my sister when my mother was recuperating from surgery. Her laugh and her voice will be with me forever. Thank you, Auntie, for your love, laughter, and care. You will never be forgotten.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many memories of Nana Rose. From her amazing meatballs and potatoes, listening to her play the piano when she took lessons, and of course her endless warnings about watching out for wet leaves when driving ❤️ I am thinking of you all during this time.
    Love to you all,
    Christine

  6. Rest in sweet peace, Auntie, and give my mom and dad big hugs from me. I wish I’d had the chance to see you more.
