Paula Hampton Rosati passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 13, 2020, at the age of 67. She was born May 25, 1953, in Hamilton, Ohio, to Cecil and Loraine Hampton. She graduated from Wright State University, where she majored in fine arts and met her beloved husband of 43 years, Pete Rosati.
Paula loved her family more than anything in the world. She devoted her life to raising her children and acting as a supportive mother-figure to all of their friends. She was also a gifted painter, who shared her work and artistic talent with anyone who asked. Paula loved food and was an excellent cook. Nothing made her happier than hosting a large Italian dinner for family and friends. She was generous in spirit and always made room for one more at the table, no matter the circumstances. Since 2014, Paula has been a joyful and devoted “Gigi,” never tiring of reading stories to her grandchildren and indulging their many whims with great pleasure.
She is survived by her husband, Pete; her three children, Pete, Andrew, and Kate; and three grandchildren, Eleanor, Emerson, and Michael. Paula is deeply loved and will be greatly missed. She will be remembered for her boundless love and devotion, which she gave without reservation to all those she held dear.
Please join us in celebrating her life next year, when it is safe for everyone to share memories and comfort in person.
