Jennie (Cozzaglio) Strange (90) passed away on February 16, 2021, in Bedford, New Hampshire.

Jennie was born in North Adams, MA, on August 7, 1930, the daughter of Michael D. and Maria Rosina Cozzaglio. She attended North Adams schools and graduated from Drury High School with the class of 1950.

Jennie worked at James Hunter Machine Company for many years. She was last employed by Ames Dept. Store in North Adams until her retirement in 1990.

In her day, Jennie was very socially active with the St. Anthony Rosary Society, Italian Girls Club, Socialette Club, and with golf, bowling leagues, and as a Girl Scout leader. In her retirement, she was a member of the Clarksburg Seniors, enjoyed yoga and exercise classes at the Spitzer Center, and was proud to serve the community, including as a volunteer with the SteepleCats and North Adams Regional Hospital. As well, she accompanied her husband and friends to provide musical entertainment at local nursing homes.

Jennie was the beloved wife and soul mate of the late Jay L. Strange, and loving mother to Steven Strange and his wife Kathy of Naperville, IL, and to Kathleen Strange of Francestown, N.H. She was a cherished grandmother of Matthew Strange and his wife Alicia of Aurora, IL, and Nicholas Strange of Naperville, IL; dear great-grandmother to Isaiah, Noah, Lia, and Jeremiah; and fond aunt of many. Jennie was predeceased by three brothers including William Cozzaglio, Battista "Gino" Cozzaglio, and Gino Cozzaglio who died in infancy.

Jennie was a ray of sunshine with a smile and kind word for everyone she encountered. Selfless, caring, loving, funny, sweet, and always thoughtful are the words her many friends and family use to describe her. And she had "the best laugh ever." She will be sadly missed but fondly remembered.

Aunt Jennie, may you rest in peace with Uncle Jay. We all loved you, even from a distance, and you will be very much missed. I am very thankful for all the memories of always making me feel so welcome and a part of your family, as well as helping me get my very first job at Zayre's. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Steven, Kat and your families. We look forward to being able to see all of you in celebration of Aunt Jennie's life. We we're certainly blessed to have her be a part of our life.
With our love and sincere sympathy, Alan, Sharon, Bryan & Julie

I had the pleasure of working with Jennie for many years at Zayre Dept. Store. We shared many great times together, including going to exercise classes. She had a great sense of humor and we had many laughs together. She will be missed by her many friends she made a long the way. She is now with the love of her life (Jay). RIP Jennie, I will miss you.
