Tessari, Donna Marie

DONNA MARIE TESSARI Boston, MA “Ms. Donna” died unexpectedly December 4, 2021 at home. She was born on February 5, 1952 in Boston, the third daughter of the late Olga and Victor Tessari. She shared her early home life with sisters Linda, Eileen, and Christine, and brothers Vic, Gerard, and James. Scholastically, she attended St. Mathews Elementary, St. Gregory’s High School, and Boston State College. She worked many jobs through the years, until settling for restaurant service @ Cafe Vendome and The Magic Pan for twelve years in the Seventies and Eighties. In a major career shift, she became a U.S. Postal Employee in 1986, working in Cambridge, Boston GMF, Jamaica Plain, and finally Roslindale, which lasted until her retirement in 2019. Donna shared her entire adult life with her darling sweetheart, soulmate, and husband Curt Naihersey, for fifty-two years living a dedicated devotion to total love, co-existence, and endearing continuity. As a couple, their home in Hyde Park was always open for impressionable artistic /musical adventures and culinary gatherings. Their combined lives were filled with joy and wonder and commitment to family and friends. A True Love Story. In her recent years, Donna dedicated herself to cooking, gardening, painting, and photography. Her dinners were inventive and exquisite, her garden was aglow with flowers and plants, and her latest art and photos achieved new recognition. Her passing will remain a private ceremony

    As well as living the life of an artist, Donna exemplified the so often lost and rare art of being a completely kind and gentle person. Her
    passing leaves a void that really can not be filled as there is no one like her. Truly a life well lived. Our hearts go out to you, Curt. Love from Janice and Stephen
