Rose M. Schiano
April 29, 1923 ~ January 13, 2014
Rose M. Schiano, 90, wife of the late James Schiano of South Norwalk, passed away Monday, January 13th, 2014 in Norwalk Hospital surrounded by her loving family.
Rosie was born on April 29th, 1923, in Newark, New Jersey. She was the daughter of the late Rena and Anthony Evangelista.
Rosie was an impeccable homemaker. Dust could never settle nor did wrinkles stand chance. Her family thought of her as a super hero, for all that she taught them, and fondly referred to her as “Roseniss.” Rosie enjoyed visits from family and friends. She loved knitting, playing and teaching cards, animals, and her weekly Hollywood magazines. Her bravest, most courageous accomplishment was getting her drivers license at the age of 65 years young.
Rosie is survived by her son, Richard and his wife Patricia of The Villages, FL, and her daughter, Patricia DiCostanzo and her husband, Leonard, of Norwalk, CT; 4 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister, Joan Migliarese and her husband, John of Westport, and Catherine Galassi of Cordova, TN, along with numerous nieces and nephews. Rosie is predeceased by her sister, Gloria, wife of Joseph Delius, formerly of Trumbull, CT.
