Roseann Trionfi-Mazzuchelli, who has served as veteransâ€™ services director for the town of Winthrop for the past nine years, is stepping down to take a similar role in the towns of Melrose, Wakefield, and Saugus.
Trionfi-Mazzucchelli, who is a veteran of the U.S. Army, will begin in her new position as director of veteransâ€™ services for the three neighboring communities on July 5. Her office will be based at the Milano Family Senior Center in Melrose.
Trionfi-Mazzuchelli, 61, served 21 years in the U.S. Army. She was in the Armyâ€™s Military Police officer for three years, serving in Germany. She was a special agent in the U.S. Army Criminal Investigations Command for 18 years.
â€œI am grateful for the opportunity to have served as Winthropâ€™s veteransâ€™ services director,â€ said Trionfi-Mazzucchelli. â€œI learned so much. It was my second favorite job, other than being a mom. Iâ€™m truly happy that I was able to serve all of Winthropâ€™s military veterans and their families. It was my honor to serve. I have great pride in my hometown. I will forever be grateful to the veterans I served with, especially Rich Honan, with whom I planned the townâ€™s events. Also, the Winthrop American Legion Post 146 and all the other organizations that supported veteransâ€™ services.â€
Trionfi-Mazzucchelli also noted the support of the Winthrop Lodge of Elks, the Drop Zone Brewery, Winthrop Federal Credit Union and local businesses â€œwho constantly donated to assist our veterans.â€
â€œAnd I want to thank the volunteers from my veteransâ€™ food bank, because without them, I could not have run the food bank,â€ said Trionfi-Mazzuchelli.
The popular Winthrop resident also expressed â€œmy eternal gratitudeâ€ to her husband, David, and their four children, Lauren, Joseph, Frank, and Paul, for their support of her work as veteransâ€™ services director.
