Condolences to the Family

I was shocked when I heard only today that Roseanne had died at the young age of 63; I hadn’t even known she was ill. I was a member of her community in Philadelphia also living in University Mews.  I remember meeting her & Ron when they moved into their Mews home many years ago. Rosie was always friendly & effervescent.  She was particularly fond of my 20 year old grandson, Giovanni, from the time he was a toddler, always asking about him. She took such loving care of Ron during his long illness, never complaining & rarely asking for help. She was loved & will be missed. My condolences to all her family members.

I offer my deepest condolences to Pauline (her mother), Donna (her sister), Bob (her brother), Joseph (her nephew), and to all of the rest of Roseann’s family and friends. Roseann was a very special and kind person.  Also, she was very social, and truly loved people.  Roseann was a deep woman of faith, and her faith was very important to her.  She truly loved the Lord Jesus and the Blessed Mother.  I will miss her cheerful, positive, supportive, and kind personality and presence.  May the angels guide and take Roseann into the loving arms of Jesus and to the Blessed Mother for all eternity.  May Roseann rest in the peace of Christ.  Love, your friend, Mary Ann Ambrose
