Obituary for Rosemary Parise

Rosemary Parise, 68, formerly of Brockton and Hyannis, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at the Beaumont Skilled Nursing Center in Westborough. She succumbed to her many health issues brought on by diabetes but is no longer suffering.

Born September 2nd, 1950 in Gasperina Italy, she was the daughter of Maria (CeliaMagno) Parise and the late Vincenzo Parise.

Rosemary was a generous, devoted and tireless teacher for many years at Brockton High School and Notre Dame Academy in Hingham. Her passion as a Spanish and Italian language teacher was surpassed only by her love of her family, especially her nieces, nephews, and their children. A highly educated woman, Rosemary graduated from UMASS and held multiple master’s degrees having attended graduate studies at NYU, Middlebury College, University of Madrid, University of Mexico, and coursework in Florence Italy. She was “all but dissertation” in her doctorate program. Born in Italy, Rosemary grew up in Brockton, traveled extensively and, at various times, lived in Lucca (Tuscany) Italy, Madrid Spain, Shrewsbury, MA, and Hyannis, MA. Among her fondest memories were family events spent with her nieces and nephews.

She is survived by her mother Maria (CeliaMagno) Parise, now of Westborough; her sister Betty (Parise) Mattimore and her husband Brendan of Ashburn, Virginia, and their beloved children, Grace, Caroline, and Jack; her brother Mike Parise and wife Jan of Westborough , and their adored children Dan and his wife Leigh, their daughters Camryn and Harper; Brian Parise; Andrew Parise and his wife Julia and son Leo; Kevin Parise and his wife Victoria. She had a large extended family with aunts, uncles, and cousins in both Massachusetts and Italy.
