3 Condolences for Mary A. Rose

  • Rest In Peace. Love you Grandmother

  • Dear Family of Mary Rose,

    This lady was truly a joy to be around. She always had a smile and something pleasant to say. During the time that I ministered to her at her home bringing Eucharist, I always felt special to be with her. To live to be 100, is extraordinary! May Mary Rose know the fulfillment of eternal life. Many Blessings to her family. She always spoke highly of each one that she would mention. I will always have fond memories remembering my time with her and her many times she joined The Angels Dinner Group for dinner. It was sheer pleasure to pick her up and have her come along.

    With Love and Peace,
    Marianne Oratorio

  • May she rest on peace and all the wonderful memories live on and on. Love to the whole family. You are in our thoughts.
