Rose Mary (Roy) Leger, 73, of Hudson, MA, formerly of New Durham, NH and Waltham, MA, died on Thursday, August 31, 2023. She leaves her beloved husband of 55 years Zoel Leger of Hudson, MA.
Rose was born in St. Marie, New Brunswick, Canada, daughter of the late Prosper and Ida (Leger) Roy. She moved to the United States at a young age and was raised in Waltham, MA. She was a graduate of Newton High School. She relished in the role of “mom”, raising her children and caring for the family home. Zoel and Rose have resided in Hudson, MA the past 2 years and prior to that spent 25 years in New Durham, NH and 20 years in Waltham, MA where Zoel and Rose were married.
Besides her husband, Rose leaves her son Brian Leger and his wife Carol of Hudson, MA; her daughter Monique Mola and her husband John of Leominster, MA along with her 5 grandchildren, Krystal Leger, Jessica Leger, Hunter Leger, Derek Mola and Tyler Mola. She is also survived by her brother Raymond Roy of British Columbia; her sister Bernice Dube of Waltham, MA and her many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Rose loved staying home and raising her children along with her husband Zoel. She enjoyed caring for their home and had several hobbies which kept her busy in her sparetime. Antiques of all sorts interested her and searching out yard sales and flea markets to add items to her collection was always on her schedule. She also spent time running her consignment shop displaying many unique items for folks to purchase. She traveled extensively while working with a travel agency inspecting many vacation destinations throughout the United States and Abroad. She looked forward to evenings at Foxwoods Resort with her husband Zoel and taking a day to cruise around in her red rose corvette was truly a special event for her. Most of all Rose’s passion in life was her family. Spending time with them, especially later with her grandchildren and her “granddogs” McGraw and Bentley was always cherished. She will be greatly missed but never forgotten by those who loved and knew her.
Rose’s life will be celebrated at the Tighe Hamilton Regional Funeral Home, 50 Central Street, Hudson, MA, on Monday, September 11th, 2023, at 8PM. Family and friends may attend a visitation period from 5 PM to 8 PM before the service. Committal services will be held privately at the convenience of the family.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Rose may be made to the charity of ones choice.
