ANTONETTA ROSATI FIORETTI

Antonetta was born on November 8, 1925 at home in Loseto, Italy and died May 15, 2017 at the age of 91. She loved family, cooking, entertaining, music, and politics.

In 1931 when she was six years old, Antonetta’s family emigrated from Loseto to Stampede Pass. She attended Holy Names Academy in Seattle and Holy Names College in Spokane, and the nuns made a deep and permanent impact on her life.

She married Matt Fioretti in 1944 and became a lifelong member of Holy Family Church and a founding member of the Auburn Sons of Italy. She worked for GSA during the war, and for Boeing and DSHS after the war. She helped all who needed help, providing clothes and food and compassion for the needy. No one ever left her house hungry.

She was preceded in death by husband Matt Fioretti of Auburn. Her life of service to others is celebrated by her children Gene Fioretti (Anna), Joe Fioretti (Debbie), Mary Knoll (Danny), David Fioretti (Patty), and Matt Fioretti (Dee). Her strong faith and steady kindness will be missed by her ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Her life will be celebrated at Holy Family Catholic Church in Auburn at a rosary at 7 PM Friday, May 26 and her funeral at 11 AM Saturday, May 27.

In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations to Holy Names Academy or Catholic Community Services.
