Jeanette Hosker

A family woman of faith and grace

Family and friends are invited to attend visiting hours on Thursday, May 31 from 4 to 8 p.m. in the Vertuccio and Smith, Home for Funerals, 773 Broadway (Rt. 107) Revere for Jeannette C. (Chiampa) Hosker who died on Sunday, May 27 at the Lighthouse Nursing Care Center following a long illness. She was 91 years old. Her funeral will be conducted from the funeral home on Friday, June 1 at 10 a.m. followed by a Funeral Mass at 11 a.m. in St. Anthony of Padua Church, 250 Revere St., Revere. Interment will be Private.

Jeannette was born and raised in East Boston and is a graduate of East Boston High School, Class of 1944. After graduation, Jennette began a 12-year career as a sales clerk at Filene’s in downtown Boston. She left Filene’s in 1961.

She lived most of her early years in East Boston and moved to Exeter, New Hampshire in 1976, remaining there until December 1980 when she moved to Revere and she lived here until her passing. A classic example of the ancient adage; “Cleanliness is next to Godliness” was Jeannette’s proverb to live by. Anyone knowing her or having had the honor of being a guest at her home, certainly can attest to the spotless and meticulous care that she gave her home. And in her regard to her “Godliness”… she was a woman of faith and grace. Most proud to be a practicing Roman Catholic, she thoroughly enjoyed her faithful association with her child-parish, St. Mary-Star of the Sea Church of East Boston and then, in later years, her membership at the St. Anthony of Padua Community Parish of Revere.

However, first and foremost, Jeannette was a “Family Woman” and nothing gave her more joy than the company of her family and extended family. As she became somewhat in need of assistance, her genuine sense of humor and depth of her personality came to light.

The devoted wife of the late Richard W. Hosker, she was the loving mother of Warren A. Hosker and his fiancé, Susan C. Hagen of Beverly and Wendianne Ferullo and her husband, William R., Jr. of Peabody; cherished grandmother of Christopher R. “C.J.” Alimonti and Aj’a C. Alimonti, both of Peabody. She was also the proud and devoted daughter of the late Anthony and Marion (Russo) Chiampa; dear sister of the late Roger R. Chiampa and Roseanne M. Stringi. She is also lovingly survived by Sharon L. Salvucci and family of Danvers and by several nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews and loving cousins.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 309 Waverley Oaks Road, Waltham,  MA 02452.
