Francisca “Panchy” Rosado of Waltham, passed away peacefully at her home on October 21, 2020 at the age of 84. She was surrounded by her loved ones and was welcomed home by her Savior, Jesus Christ.
Born on March 9, 1936 in Corozal, Puerto Rico, Panchy came to Waltham, Massachusetts in 1963. She is the daughter of the late Florencio Zayas and Maria Elias Berrios.
One of 16 children, she is survived by her remaining siblings: Luz Maria Aviles, Confesora Alvarez, and Fernando Zayas. Additionally, she was a dedicated mother and is survived by her devoted and loving three daughters: Maria Judy Santiago (Efrain) of Waltham, Marilyn Rosado of Hudson, and Evelyn R. Jelloe (Stephen) of Waltham. Her grandchildren Jamie, Erica, Iliana, and Gerard brought her great joy, and she embraced every moment she spent with them.
Panchy lived a full life as a wonderful, loving mother, grandmother, homemaker and worker at Unitrode Corp., where she spent over 30 years until she retired. She loved to cook and looked forward every Sunday after church in anticipation of who would be walking through the doors to share a meal. The smile on their face after eating that week’s creation brought her great joy and satisfaction.
