Martha L (Bousfield) Tassinari, 74, of Sagamore passed away peacefully at home on Oct 29th, with her family.

She was born June 30, 1946 in the town of Winchester, MA. to the late Roy and Grace (Seaboyer) Bousfield and grew up in Monument Beach. She is survived by the love of her life, her husband John, and their son John S. Tassinari and Selena of Sandwich. She is also survived by her brother Paul Bousfield and Linda of Sandwich along with many nieces and nephews.

As a child she got to travel to Europe with her mother, while her father worked in the oil fields in Saudi Arabia. Martha graduated from Bourne High School and married her high school sweetheart on September 5, 1964. In later years, she enjoyed many trips to Disney World with all the kid’s family and friends. Martha was an awesome cook, excellent cake decorator, bowler and loved gardening. She also worked alongside her husband and son on their cranberry bog. Her greatest joy was when her son was young, watching and encouraging him in sports, attending just about every event he was in. She spent many hours bundled up at Gallo rink, or at the high school gym, or baseball field, never missing a game. She doted on her many nieces and nephews and loved children, baking them her famous chocolate chip cookies, making her home made tortellinis, or hosting parties around her pool.

She is at peace now and will be greatly missed by her family, friends, and neighbors.

To the family of Martha, I am so sorry for your loss. I will miss seeing Martha at the Market Basket where we would end up talking for quite a long time. Also, when she had me over to show me how to make homemade pasta. I will miss her very much!

Dear John I am so sorry for your’s and young John’s loss. You have been in my thoughts and prayers. I have lovely memories of Martha through High School and after we were both married. Many times when I came home to the Cape I would go and sit at your kitchen table and just gab, catch up and laugh. She loved that I was 21 days older than her! I know she will be missed by you and your family and I will always keep a small place in my heart for her too. Rest in sweet Peace Martha. Warmest regards, Terri
