Rose was a fun loving person, a creative free spirit who embraced the peace of nature and animals. Her generous heart was always lending a helping hand to those in need. She was a master story teller and her tales would always leave people laughing.
She was the neighborhood mom to many, including Josh Pongallo, who she raised as her own. With no siblings of her own, Rose called many of her friends sister and they were so important in her daily life. Rose will be most remembered for how much she loved and the memories shared with her husband and children. Rose was a very large presence in the lives of many and her beautiful spirt will be greatly missed.
A Celebration of Life Memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 24th from 2 pm – 6pm at the Fraternal Order of Eagles, 9953 Rittman Rd, Wadsworth, OH 44281
