Beverly A. (Mazzola) Delosa, of Waltham, passed away on Sunday, March 13, 2022 at Brigham and Women's Hospital. She was 85.
Beverly was born and raised in Newton on February 8, 1937, and was a daughter of Jennie Nicolazzo and Peter Natale. After high school she worked for a time at Queen Cleaners in Waltham.
She met Waltham native, Robert J. Delosa while out one night with a group of friends. Bob wore a sapphire ring that caught Beverly's eye, and of course she asked to see it. Knowing nobody could get the ring off including himself, he obliged so long as she could get it off his hand… She did. Bob would remark that he knew, that night, he was going to marry her, but still has no clue how she got the ring off. A year later on July 11, 1970 the two were married in Our Lady Help of Christians Church in Newton and they made Waltham their home. Beverly's number one joy in life was enjoying the company of her family.
Beverly leaves her daughter, Dawn M. Gaffney (John) of Waltham; her grandchildren, Samantha Bourdeau, John Gaffney, Jr., and Vanessa Gaffney, and her great-grandchild, Nevaeh McLendon. She was also the sister of Paul and Peter Natale.
