Born in Acri, Italy, Rosemary came to the USA with her mother in 1932, settling in Mount Vernon, NY. She moved to Newark in 1941 and married her husband Russell in 1957. Their growing family resided in Newark, Belleville and then Bloomfield for many years. After Russell’s passing in 1995, Rosemary lived in Webster Groves, MO starting in 1996 and then became a resident of West Orange in 2003.

Prior to her retirement, she was a data processor at Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville for 25 years. Rosemary was an active parishioner at Holy Redeemer Parish in Webster Groves, MO and later at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Church in Roseland, NJ.

Rosemary loved her family above and beyond all things. For many years she sacrificed her own needs for those of her children. She was a generous, giving wife, mother, grandmother, friend and patriot. Nobody made meatballs or Italian knot cookies like Rosemary. She also loved her Louis L’Amour western novels, Turner Classic Movies, her country, members of U.S. Armed Forces and veterans, family holiday gatherings and food, the St. Louis Cardinals, all of the family pets over the years and following the lives of her children and grandchildren.

She is pre-deceased by her beloved husband, Russell Roemmele.
