NORTHFIELD ---- Masako Rollins, age 89, of Summer Street, passed away peacefully on November 17, 2022, at the Granite VNA Hospice House in Concord, NH.
Masako was born on April 21, 1933, in Kofu City, Japan. She moved to the United States after meeting her late husband, David. She was a devoted full-time mother who raised her 9 children with love. Above all, she valued spending time with her family playing Pinochle and other card games, and her other favorite past times were taking long car rides on country roads and going out dancing to her favorite music, country.
In her spare time, she loved crocheting and you could always find her searching for her beloved four-leaf clovers. She was a passionate fan of the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. Masako was lively, witty, and kept us all on our toes and ready for a good laugh. She will be dearly missed and remain forever in our hearts.
Masako is survived by her son George Rollins and wife Valerie, her daughters Mariko Rollins, Jeni Smith, Rose Russell and partner Chris Gavin, Mable Rollins, Naomi Blais, Jane Rollins and partner Keith Young, and Cindy Soucy and husband Bob. She is predeceased by her parents, her husband David Rollins, son Tom Rollins, her grandchildren Chrissy Smith and Donnie Smith, and her later in life sweetheart David Prince.
