Dolores “Dolly” (Sosville) Rosinski, 78, passed away at Norwood Hospital unexpectedly, surrounded by the comfort of her loving family Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2019. She was the daughter of the late Leonard and Jeannette (Laliberte) Sosville.

Dolly was born in Pawtucket on July 21, 1941. She was raised in North Attleboro and has lived most of her life in Foxboro.

Beloved wife of the late George Joseph Rosinski.

Dolly worked making jewelry for Creed Rosary in North Attleboro for many years, before leaving to raise her family -- something she loved, always there for everything her children and grandchildren did.

Dolly was “Nana” to five, but spent more than 50 years nurturing and caring for so many more. She loved children and became a second home for so many. They all loved the time they spent at “Dolly’s.” They would come by the house these days with their own children to visit. And they would all tell you, her cooking was the best, and no one could match her brownies.

She loved her country music and enjoyed all the local shows. She was able to take the trip of a lifetime to Nashville, with her oldest and dearest friend Mary Brown — something that meant the world to her.

Loving mother of Lori McDonald and her late husband Joseph of Foxboro, Gail O’Neill and her husband Michael of Foxboro, and Larry Cote. Devoted grandmother of Shawn, Scottie and Chrissy McDonald, and Amanda and Rachel O’Neill. Sister of Lois, Betty, Gloria and Mary. Sister-in-law of Albert Rosinski. Also survived by her beloved dog Joey.

Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend calling hours from 4 to 7 p.m., Monday, Jan. 6, at the Roberts and Sons Funeral Home, 30 South St., Foxboro.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m., Tuesday, Jan. 7, at St. Mary’s Church, 58 Carpenter St., Foxboro. Interment to follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery, Foxboro.
