Rose L. (Timledge) Iacobucci, 94, of Hudson passed away peacefully on Friday, November 4, 2022, at Beaumont Rehabilitation Center in Northborough. She leaves her sons, John J. Iacobucci, Sr. and his wife Nancy, and Peter F. Iacobucci and his partner Nancy Gilmore, all of Hudson.
Rose was born in Hudson MA on July 13, 1928. It was a Friday the 13th, and her mother never let her forget it. Rose was the oldest of two daughters of the late Joseph and Constance (DeSantis) Timledge of Hudson. She was raised in Hudson, where she graduated from Hudson High School in 1946. She met her future husband and love of her life, Adam, at LaPointe Machine and Tool Company, Inc., where she worked as an office clerk. Rose and Adam married on October 11, 1953, and settled in Hudson to raise their family. She was a devoted mother and housewife whose life revolved around her family.
Rose was a longtime member of Christ the King/St. Michael Parish as well as a member of the Hudson Emblem Club for many years. She was a talented, Bolton Fair award-winning rug braider. She braided many rugs for her home, as well as for the homes of her family and friends. Rose was an avid fan and supporter of her children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events throughout their lives. She took great pride and pleasure in never missing a game. She was also an avid Red Sox fan. Rose was proclaimed “Matriarch of River Street” for her gregarious and inquisitive nature. She never met a person that she didn’t want to chat with. Adam described their grocery shopping as “20 minutes an aisle.”
In addition to her sons, Rose is survived by her grandchildren Kate Iacobucci Hodges and her husband Christopher of Stow, John J. Iacobucci, Jr. and his wife Julie of Hopewell Junction NY, Rebecca Connolley of Northampton, Benjamin Iacobucci of Northampton, Paul-Dunn Garcia and Jason Garcia of Hudson, and Mary Helfrich of Palmyra, PA; great-grandchildren Ryan, Zachary, and Nicholas Hodges of Stow, and John Iacobucci III of Hopewell Junction. Rose also leaves her niece, Debra Schmitt and her husband Paul of Mendon, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her sister Angelina Delsignore of Hudson.
