CHELMSFORD - RoseMarie (Andrade) Soghigian, RN, a longtime resident of Chelmsford, passed away at her home on Wednesday, October 24, 2018, at the age of 72.

She was born in Lowell on August 18, 1946 and was a daughter of the late Antonio G. and Mary M. (Pestana) Andrade. RoseMarie was a loving wife of 44 years to Karekin (KS) Soghigian, mother to Kara L. and grandmother to Enzo A. Soghigian of Salem, NH.

A graduate of the Chelmsford High School class of 1964, RoseMarie earned her nursing degree from St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in Lowell. She worked in the ICU and Recovery Room at St. Joseph’s hospital until 1982 when she left nursing to become a Household Management Executive.

She initiated a fundraising and donation program for House of Hope in Lowell which was supported by the St. Gregory community.
