BERNARD - Rosamond B. Pinchetti, 82, of Benson Lane, died May 13, 2012, at a Bar Harbor nursing facility. She was born Aug. 31, 1929, in Bernard, the youngest daughter of Ralph G. and Eva (Wooster) Benson. Rose graduated from Pemetic High School, class of 1947. After high school graduation, she studied office management at and graduated from Husson College, Bangor. After graduation she worked in Hartford, Conn., and held positions with several different companies as office manager. It was in Hartford, Conn., that she met her future husband, "Vermonter," Irvin Pinchetti, who was a talented practical engineer working in the aerospace industry. They married in 1953. From Hartford, Conn., they then frequently enjoyed traveling north to both Vermont, where Rose learned to downhill ski, and to Mount Desert Island, where Irvin learned about salt water fishing. When Irvin retired in 1981, the decision to move back to Bernard was an easy one. Rose was active in the local Kiwanis Club, Tremont Historical Society and Tremont Ladies Aid. She was a trustee of Bass Harbor Library, member of Tremont Congregational Church and Tremont correspondent for the Bar Harbor Times. While they never had children of their own, Rose is lovingly remembered by numerous nieces and nephews from the Benson and Pinchetti families. She is survived by her sister, Prudence Beal of Southwest Harbor. Her parents; and sister, Marilyn, predeceased her. A service of remembrance will be held 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 22, at Tremont Congregational Church, Bernard. Interment will be at the Benson family cemetery on Lopaus Point. Gifts in Rose's memory may be made to Bass Harbor Library, P.O. Box 99, Bernard, ME 04612 or Southwest Harbor Animal Welfare, P.O. Box 434, Southwest Harbor, ME 04679. Arrangements by Jordan-Fernald, 1139 Main St., Mount Desert. Condolences may be expressed at www.jordanfernald.com.
