Rosalie A. Rodick, former Plymouth County Administrator, died on March 13 at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth. She was 82.

Mrs. Rodick passed peacefully surrounded by her family, following a period of failing health.

Born to Mary and Carmin Coletti and raised in Braintree, she was a 1957 graduate of Braintree High School. Following her marriage to the late Martin A. Rodick, she moved to Whitman in 1961, where she raised a family of three children. She began a long public service career with a part-time position in Whitman Town Hall. She then took a position at the old County Hospital in Hanson, before joining the Plymouth County Commissioners’ Office. Later, she was appointed County Administrator, supervising the day-to-day operations of the county until her retirement.

As County Administrator, she was instrumental in construction of the Registry of Deeds building and revamping the county’s health insurance system, and became an expert in municipal health insurance. Her advice and counsel was often sought by cities, towns and counties throughout the Commonwealth.

Throughout her life, she was active in Democratic politics in Whitman and in Plymouth County. She was a volunteer and supporter of many Democratic candidates in local and county election campaigns. She was a member of the Whitman Democratic Town Committee and the Plymouth County Democratic League. She was a regular participant in Whitman Town Meeting.
