Rosita M. (Silva) Andrews, 72, a longtime Chief of the Massachusett Natick Praying Indians, passed away Sunday, April 2. She was the wife of Lyn C. Hovey.
Since 1995, she was the Chief of the Massachusett Natick, Ponkapoag and Nashoba Praying Indians, and was the Pastor of the Indigenous services at the Eliot Church in Natick. Caring Hands was also an accomplished author.
Caring Hands was a frequent participant in area events involving her people, from the early discussions of Natick changing its town seal and Natick High mascot to a land acknowledgement last year at MassBay Community College in Wellesley.
We share our condolences with family and friends.

Thanks for that info on Rosa
Was not aware of how much she has done.
It’s about time they got to work on St Patrick School, but does everything in Natick have to be under construction all the time?!
