Rosemary Cipoletta


Rosemary Cipoletta of Malden died Sunday, October 17 after a lengthy illness.  She was 78.  Born in Winthrop in 1943, she was the daughter of the late Avelino Albino, (originally from Lisbon Portugal) and Mary (Silva) Albino of Malden.

She was raised and graduated Malden High School in 1961. After high school she worked as an office assistant in Boston and later received her nursing degree as a caregiver for the Dexter Nursing Home.  After she married her childhood sweetheart Michael Cipoletta, she stayed at home to raise her three children and later returned as a caregiver for the elderly.  She worked at Boston University as an Admissions’ Assistant where she received an Associate’s Degree in Psychology.  Before her retirement she worked as an office manager for Ophthalmic Consultants in Boston.

Rosemary loved animals and rescued and cared for any animal that came to her door for over 50 years.  She was a wonderful and loving mother and was the love of her husband’s life as he was hers.
