Text size

Rose M. Grasso (triplet 1), 67, a resident of Los Lunas, N.M., passed away suddenly Tuesday, June 13, 2017. She was the pastor's wife and a member of Meadow Lake Bible Church. Rose was a God-fearing woman and loved the people of Meadow Lake and prayed for them daily. She had a gift for helping everyone with a passion.
Rose was married to her loving husband for nine years, and he wants all to know, “She was the sweetest person he has ever known, we were always together always laughing praying and helping each other passionately we were inseparable, we loved all the same things except anchovies. Rose hated anchovies, we were blessed to have a great life together.” She spent her childhood up until junior high in Malden, Mass., then moved to Lynn, where she attended and graduated from Lynn Classical High School in 1967. Rose worked in in various accounts payable positions and before she retired, she was working with the Andover Ear Nose and Throat Center in Andover. Rose enjoyed gardening, swimming, and loved her dogs and old cars. Shopping was also something she loved to do and she had this endearing habit of always changing the house around. Rose often talked about fond memories she had with her sisters, Ruth (triplet 2) and Renee (triplet 3). She loved sharing them, too. Rose was preceded in death by her father, Fortunato D’Aveta; and sister, Ruth D’Aveta (triplet 2). She is survived by her loving husband of nine years, Reverend Alfred Andrew Grasso; mother, Ruth Sehovey (Lindon) of Lynn; sister, Renee and husband, Joseph Pike of Winthrop; sons, Erik and wife, Jennifer Little of Hooksett, N.H., David Little of Center Conway, N.H., and Robert Little, Jr. of Pelham, N.H.; aunt, Claire Inkpen of Palm Coast, Fla.; and grandchildren, Ryan and Emily Little. Rose is also survived by many cousins, uncles, nieces, and many lifelong friends.
