Our first memories of Aunt Rose are going over to her house with our mother and eating her delicious zeppoles. We can still picture it: sitting at her dining room table, hearing her booming laugh fill the room. We always loved visiting Aunt Rose because we knew what awaited us was an interesting story and a heart filled with love. Even recently, visiting her at the diner with our mother, grandmother, and little Elliana was such a treat. The day would always feel a little bit brighter with her around; her positivity and happiness was infectious. You will be greatly missed, Aunt Rose.

Love, Nicole and Natalie

Dear Dee, Danielle & Nancy,
Long before Aunt Rose became your mom, she was know as "Auntie Ro" to me and my brother Ralph. Going to Stirling and visiting grandma and grandpa every Sunday was fun but I was always very excited that Auntie Rosie would be there. She was glamorous, went on dates, wore make-up, had a "Hi-Fi" player with records and knew how to do the "Twist!" There are so many memories of Aunt Rose that are special, too numerous to name here, but as we remember Aunt Rose's 84 birthday today, I want you girls to know how lucky you were to have won "the mom lottery" and how fortunate I was to have such a wonderful Aunt! I will miss her so much! Happy Birthday Aunt Rose! Now you can celebrate and party with your parents, brothers and all of the angels in heaven Love Jeanne

Denise, Danielle, Nancy and all of your family members... I am so very sorry to hear about your Mom. So much of my childhood was spent up at your house, and both your Mom and Dad always welcomed me and made me feel like part of the family. I can recall so many memories of your mom...her laugh and outgoing personality, not to mention her outstanding cooking. Thinking of you all and sending my love.
