Brenda Elaine (Rosen) Bellin, age 78, formerly of Marlborough and Framingham, passed away peacefully on November 28, 2018, after a long and courageous battle with metastatic lung cancer. She was surrounded by her loving family who stayed faithfully by her side.
Brenda is survived by her devoted husband Ronald Bellin. Brenda leaves three children: Paula Bellin and husband Andy Freedman; Wendy Savoie and husband Eric; Scott Bellin and wife Michelle. She also leaves her grandsons, her “six pack o’ boys” Matthew, Sam, Zachary, Jacob, Jordan and Daniel. She was predeceased by her brother, Mark (Billy) Rosen. In addition, she had many nieces, nephews, cousins and lifelong friends with whom she shared wonderful life experiences. Brenda was born in Boston on December 31, 1939 to Sam and Eve Rosen. She grew up in Newton and stayed active with her high school classmates and class reunions her whole life. She spent her summers in Casco, Maine, and this location served as a central focus in the life of both friends and family. Anyone who knew Brenda also knew of “Nana’s Lake Hotel.” Brenda went to Boston University, where she studied business and met her husband, Ron. They married right after college and remained in Boston until moving to Framingham to raise their family. Brenda always worked as an administrative secretary, only taking time off when her children were young and then stopping only when she became acutely ill. Anyone who knew Brenda will recall she loved hippos, playing cards, Mahjong, spending time with family and friends, and always finding ways to stay involved in the lives and interests of her six grandsons .
