West Boylston – Laura J. Rotti, age 79, passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by her loving family.
Laura was born on March 27, 1942, daughter of Rita (Marston) and Albert Rotti of West Boylston. Laura met her loving husband and best friend, Philip Rotti, and were married for 63 years. She devoted her life to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Laura's greatest love was her family and providing for them every chance she had. Laura was a cub scout leader, coached boys' community baseball, was head of the Lassie League, and an avid gardener. Most days, you could find her in her garden taking care of her beloved flowers and koi fish. She loved nature, especially hummingbirds and cardinals. After the children were grown, Laura was known to like the thrill of gambling and casino trips with Philip. She enjoyed her winter months in Florida, where she met many wonderful people who she was proud to call friends.
In the summer months, Laura spent time attending all her grandchildren's sports games and school activities. Laura was a proud woman, and when asked, she would always speak of her family and friends.
Laura is survived by her loving husband Philip, her four children and their spouses: Clifford and his wife, Lora, of Georgia, Michael and his wife, Carol, of Georgia, Judith and her husband, James, of West Boylston, and Ronald and his wife, Christine, of Rutland. Laura leaves behind 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren along with her sibling: Albert J. Rotti, Jr., Walter Rotti, Paul Rotti, and Dorothy Flanagan all of West Boylston. Laura is predeceased by her parents and her sister, Barbara (Rotti) Carbonneau.
Laura's family would like to extend their gratitude to Beacon Hospice and Cindy Jones for their dedication to Laura and support to Philip.
Family and friends are welcomed to celebrate Laura's life with visiting hours on Wednesday, January 5, 2022, from 4:00 until 6:00 p.m. at Fay Brother's Life Celebration Funeral Home, 1 West Boylston Street, West Boylston, MA. Burial will be held privately in Mount Vernon Cemetery, West Boylston.
