Obituary for Rose Gabriele
How lucky are we to have known someone that made saying goodbye so hard. Rose Gabriele captivated all those who crossed her path with her strong, witty nature and will be greatly missed. Rose was never afraid to be her authentic self and tell it how it is; her energy and confidence could fill a room. Not to mention her infectious laugh, big heart and smile. No one could ever leave a visit with Rose without having a chuckle – her one-liners and sarcastic humor made life that much more entertaining. Rose embraced her Italian culture and it was impossible to leave her house with an empty stomach. She was truly one of a kind. Rose was fierce, driven and had so much fight in her until the end. She embodied a strong independent woman and her memory will forever live on.
Rose Gabriele has been predeceased by her husband Pasquale, her parents Pantaleone and Luisa DiGiovanni, her sister Tina. She will be missed by her sister Livia (Pat), brother in law Angelo and Zia Annina (Agostino).
Also, by her children Gina (Dino), The Late Luisa (Ed) and Joseph (Sue). She leaves behind her grandchildren Angela (Dan), Danielle (Greg), Domenique, Jordanna (The Late Allen), Bianca (Frank), Nicole (David) and Simona and her great grandchildren Gia, Ava, Luana, Vida, Cruz, Emie and Mila. She leaves behind many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Please no flowers, but if you like donations to your favorite charity would be wonderful.
