FRAMINGHAM – Inga Rosenquist Synnestvedt, 82, of Framingham, passed into the Spiritual World early on Sunday morning, July 28, 2019.
She was born and raised in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. Her mother was Siri Lovisa Lindberg and her father was Viktor Rosenquist.
Inga is survived by her beloved husband of 53 years, Johan “Hans” Christian Synnestvedt, with whom she shared a genuine passion for classical music. She will be greatly missed by her 3 children: Erik Synnestvedt and his wife Carren Panico, Anita Synnestvedt Chaves and her husband Djalma Chaves, Kristin Synnestvedt de Souza and her husband Milton de Souza. She was blessed with seven loving grandchildren who played hours of board and card games with her after school.
She is also survived by her brother Carl Rosenquist and his wife Robin Boericke Rosenquist as well as her sister Solveig Rosenquist Boericke and her husband James “Jim” Boericke, and their children and grandchildren. She was predeceased by her brothers Pelle Rosenquist and Ludwig Rosenquist.
Inga was a graduate of both the Juilliard School of Music and the Boston Conservatory where she earned her Masters Degree. Her love of music was infectious and her voice was that of an angel.
She was a devout member of the New Church of Boston (https://newchurchboston.org/) where she played the piano for services many Sundays and coordinated all special music.
Music was an integral part of her life, from the many vocal and piano students she was blessed with teaching in her private studio, to being the Director of the Performing Arts Center of Framingham where she enjoyed bringing music to the community. We are certain that she is now bringing joy to the angels in heaven with her beautiful voice.
The family would like to thank the Fresenius Kidney Care Center in Framingham for their dedicated and loving staff who looked after her with such tenderness and care every time she visited. She constantly sang their praises even through the difficult process of dialysis.
The family invites you to a Celebration of Her Life on Sunday, September 22 at 10:30 a.m. at The New Church of Boston service held at B’nai Torah, 225 Boston Post Road, Sudbury, MA
Following the celebration, all are invited to a Luncheon to congregate in her honor as we remember the warmth, joy and music she spread to everyone she met.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in her name to the charity closest to your heart or to Meals on Wheels of America, a wonderful volunteer organization that nourished Inga and her husband for more than a year with lunches delivered every weekday by many amazing volunteers, always with a smile.
