You always knew when Rosalie was around. She was the life of the party: dancing around, loud and boisterous, with an infectious smile. Rosalie always put her own needs last, her concern was for those around her. She was always generous, whether it be financial or just lending an ear to listen. Her hands were always busy making cross stitch creations for family and friends. During the war she was an honest to goodness Rosie the Riveter and worked during later years for GTE and RCA in quality control and even had her own restaurant for a while in Somerville. The consummate cook was even known to drive all the way to the shore for a few dozen fresh clams for her spaghetti; her manicotti was to die for. She had more than her fair share of sharp cars from a 57 chevy to an MG.
She was pre-deceased by her brothers, Nat, Pat and Frank and her sister, Theresa Bernotas. She is survived by many nieces and nephews.
Come celebrate 90 great years Saturday 8:30 to 10 a.m. at Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside where there will be a service at 10. Interment Lakeview Cemetery, Cinnaminson.
