Obituary For Ida M. Roselli

Roselli, Ida M. (Steele) of Watertown on May 24th. Beloved wife of the late Michael J. Roselli. Loving mother of Deb Roselli Kelly and her husband Kevin of Waterford, CT, Christopher and his wife Ella of San Diego, CA, Michelle Roselli Conde and her husband Alex of Uxbridge and Timothy Steele of Watertown. Proud grandmother of Sara Kelly, Olivia Conde, and Joshua Kelly. Ida is survived by her sister Chris Twitchell and was predeceased by her parents, Frank and Claire Steele, and her siblings, Francis Steele, Elizabeth Bouvier, Joan Steele, and Robert Steele. She is also survived by many godchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Ida was beloved by everyone who knew her; as one of her grandchildren said, she was love personified. The quintessential mother, Ida was a devoted, loving mom to her four children and a doting grandmother to Sara, Olivia, and Josh. A mother figure to many of her family members and friends, she gave her heart, and often opened her home, to anyone in need. Her love was unconditional and never-ending, and she will be missed by all.

    Auntie Ida, the memories are endless and I'll forever cherish each and every one of them. Thank you for the great times, your sound advice, and for being the best aunt anyone can ask for. I will always remember you calling me "pumpkin" throughout my childhood and how you helped care for me while my mom was sick. Thank you for being there and always welcoming me into your home. Rest easy Auntie Ida.
