Loving Memory of Nancy A. Frotten (nee Rousseau)


August 9, 1938 - August 24, 2023


Nancy A. Frotten (nee Rousseau), 85, of Worcester, Massachusetts, passed away peacefully on August 24, 2023, in the arms of her family. Born on August 9, 1938, Nancy was a woman of remarkable character and unwavering devotion to her family. She will be deeply missed and forever cherished by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Nancy was a woman of profound character, whose devotion to her family was unwavering. She carried herself with grace and exemplified the values of love, kindness, and generosity throughout her life. Her commitment to her loved ones was evident in every aspect of her being.

Professionally, Nancy established herself as a dedicated and diligent worker. She contributed her talents to DePaul Plastics and later Caremark, leaving a lasting impact on those with whom she worked. Through her dedication and perseverance, she not only provided for her family but also served as an inspiration to all who knew her.

Outside of work, Nancy had a wide range of hobbies and interests. She was a proud member of the Sons of Italy and the Worcester Senior Center. Nancy cherished spending time with her great grandchildren, who lovingly called her Nanny. She enjoyed visiting her daughter in New Hampshire, spending time with her many friends, and going on trips to Foxwoods with them. Nancy found joy in playing bingo at the senior center and trying her luck with keno and scratch tickets. She loved trips to the beach with her family and cherished the annual tradition of making Christmas cookies with her loved ones.

Nancy leaves behind a legacy of love and compassion. She is survived by her devoted daughter, Michelle Kazanovicz, and husband, Peter. She is also survived by her sister, Joan Zumpfe and husband Paul. Nancy was a cherished grandmother to Lindsey, Brittany, Christopher, Ashley, Anthony, Zachary and Stephen. Her kind and nurturing spirit extended even further, as she lovingly watched over eleven great-grandchildren, who affectionately referred to her as Nanny. Additionally, her loyal and faithful companion, Nico, will forever hold a special place in her heart.

Preceding Nancy in eternal rest are her beloved daughter Barbara O'Connor and her mother, Nancy, who undoubtedly greeted her with open arms.

Family and friends are welcomed to visiting hours held at Fay Brothers Life Celebration Home, 1 West Boylston St.,  West Boylston on Friday, September 1st from 10am-11:45am.  A memorial service to honor and celebrate Nancy's life will begin in the funeral home at 12pm.
