Obituary for Irene H. Rootovich

Irene H. Rootovich, age 95, passed away peacefully Friday, January 12, 2024, at Southern New Hampshire Medical Center in Nashua, NH. She was born in Nashua, NH, June 15, 1928, and was lovingly raised by her aunt and uncle. She was the beloved wife of the late Joseph S. Rootovich who passed December 4, 1978.

Irene lived a full and vibrant life. She cherished the moments spent with her late husband, Joseph, and their journey together through the years. Irene found joy in the simple pleasures of life, and one of her favorite pastimes was watching Wheel of Fortune, where she eagerly solved puzzles from the comfort of her living room. She also had a special place in her heart for her grand-dogs, Lizzy, and Budrick. Their furry companionship brought her immense happiness and added an extra layer of warmth to her home. For the last 5 years, she lived with her daughter Nancy in her home in Manchester. They cherished the time they had and the places they went together in the past year.

Besides Irene’s husband, she is predeceased by her sister, Pauline Turcotte.

Irene is survived by her daughter Nancy A. Sullivan, son David J. Rootovich, 2 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great-grandchild, 1 niece, her grand-dogs Lizzy and Budrick, as well as her best friends, Joan Anderson and Roxanne Letarte.
