Rosemarie F. “Queenie” (Russell) Delaney – of Woburn, August 2nd. Devoted and beloved wife of the late Paul L. Delaney.

Born and raised in Cambridge, MA, Rosemarie was the only daughter of the late Henry and Rose (Wagner) Russell. She was a graduate of Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School and attended Bryant and Stratton Business School.

Rosemarie was an innovator in the rubbish community for women, which was her life long passion.  She enjoyed her family, especially during the holidays where she enjoyed cooking many an apple pie.  Her kitchen was renowned for homemade treats including grape jelly and piccalilli and  her roast beef gravy was a food group on it’s own. 

Rosemarie had a strong faith and loved her church. She was an involved communicant of St. Barbara Parish and dedicated her life to being a good Catholic. She will be deeply missed by all.

    Dear Paul, Lenny and John,
    Please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss of a truly wonderful mother.
    Growing up Aunt Queenie reminded me of Wendy from Peter Pan. We would sit and listen to her wonderful stories of her 6 active brothers and their childhood antics. Aunt Queenie left me with tears of laughter.
    I will miss her dearly.
    I’m sure Uncle Paul was waiting at the Pearly Gates of Heaven to welcome her home.
    Again, condolences from your cousin Susan and Charlie

  4. My aunt Rosemarie was a beautiful, loving,lovely lady.
    She always had a smile on her face,and a wonderful sense of humor.
    I never saw her angry, and never heard her raise her voice.
    Aunt Rosemarie made everyone happy by just walking into a room.
    Rosemarie had kind words for everyone.
    Aunt Rosemarie will be missed by all who loved her.
    We( George and Carolyn) extend our condolences to all of Aunt Rosemarie’s family.

    I’m sorry to hear of Queenie’s passing. Please accept my condolences. I will always remember the day Elvis passed away because I walked into BFI and Queenie was away from her receptionist desk. She was crying and being consoled by her fellow employees. I knew that day she was a true Elvis fan!! Rest In Peace Queenie! I will be on vacation so I apologize that I will not be able to attend Queenie’s service. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  6. Rose and Paul welcomed my family into the neighborhood. She is now with her beloved husband. You are missed in our neighborhood.
    Love the Szetela Family
