Rose M. Zydlewski, OFS, a resident of Marlborough, MA for over 50 years, passed away on July 1st, 2017 at the home of her daughter surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Buffalo, NY on November 12, 1931 to Sophie (Lesniak) and Anthony Romek. Rose’s life was devoted to her family and the Church.
