Of Malden. Passed away unexpectedly on Monday, November 28, 2022 at Tufts Medical Center in Boston at age 92. She was a lifelong resident of Malden.
June was born on June 24, 1930 in Malden, one of six children of the late Nicola and Margaret (Cowling) Amicangioli. Raised and educated in Malden, she graduated from Malden High School, and from Fisher College Secretarial School. June worked as a medical secretary for many years including over 20 years at Mass General Hospital in Boston. After the unfortunate passing of her husband, Malden Police Officer Frank J. Borseti, she persevered as a strong, loving and supportive mother for her four children.
A true matriarch, June was humble and selfless yet served as the rock of her family. Generations of family members relied on her genuine care and concern. She served as host for many family holidays, events, and was always up for a laugh around the table filled with her family members. She loved providing food and comfort for her family and close friends, and encouraged all to strive for the best in life, especially in their education. She enjoyed bringing people together with her generous heart, and her unassuming and kind way.
An avid reader, June was a regular visitor and supporter of the Malden Public Library her entire life. She was also a lifelong, passionate music lover. Through the years, she taught piano lessons from her home to many Malden children, and enjoyed playing into her 90’s. She enjoyed traveling to Las Vegas, New Orleans, Aruba and Canada with friends, but was most comfortable at home in Malden, or spending time at their home in Dennis on Cape Cod. She enjoyed gathering family together for holidays or weekends at the Cape or spending time at Bayview Beach in the summer.
Most of all, June was a self-reliant, strong yet humble woman who shared her big heart with those around her. She was beloved by all, and enjoyed a life centered around providing love for her family. She will be deeply missed, but her selfless nature and quiet strength will continue in the hearts and minds of her family as her legacy.
June was the beloved wife of the late Frank J. Borseti with whom she shared 30 years of marriage. Devoted mother of Suzanne Mills and her husband David of Melrose, Ted Borseti and his wife Kelly of Andover, Renee McDevitt and her fiancé Keith of Malden, and Andrea Fritz of W. Hartford, CT. Also, former mother-in-law of James McDevitt of Malden. Caring sister of the late Roy Amicangioli, Estelle Costa, Louis Amicangioli, Jack Amicangioli, and Mike Amicangioli.
