PAPSADORE, Mary (Suzuki) Of Dedham, 98 years young, passed peacefully at home on February 14, 2021. She was preceded in death by her late husband Onofrio Papsadore and her two sons Charles (Doreen) Papsadore and Ralph Papsadore both of Dedham.
Devoted mother of Elizabeth (Jim) Lauer of Lakewood, CO, Domenic Papsadore of Dedham, and Paul (Pam) Papsadore of North Attleboro.
Mary was born in Tokyo, Japan and came to the USA as a Japanese War Bride. While her husband was deployed in the US Navy, Mary lived with her Italian in laws and became a great Italian cook. She could make the best marinara sauce, meatballs, homemade raviolis, and pizzelle cookies but she is best known for her Japanese fried rice. Sorry to say her children can’t replicate her recipe.
She was employed at Rust Craft Greeting Card, Dedham for over twenty five years.
Mary’s grandchildren loved her sense of humor and her gentle kind soul. She leaves behind Eric (Roxann) Eveland of Houston, TX, Gary Papsadore of Dedham, Mark (Gina) Eveland of Round Rock, TX, Laurie Ann Papsadore of Dedham, Charles Papsadore, Jr. of Dedham, Ashley (Kevin) Mears of North Attleboro, Kori Papsadore of North Attleboro, CJ Lauer of Lakewood, CO, and Liam Papsadore of Dedham along with eight great-grandchildren and with relatives in Japan.

She will be laid to rest next to her beloved husband at Knollwood Memorial Park Canton.
