Rose (Frasca) Zimbardi, adored wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother & true friend, passed peacefully into her Lord’s arms November 20, 2020.
Rose was born in Mt. Vernon, New York on July 17, 1919 to her beloved parents, Carmela (Sarno) & Carmelo Frasca, into a large, loving family of brothers & sisters who are all now reunited with her: Frances, Danny, Jack, Pat, Frank, Olga & Norma.
She married the love of her life, John, at Mt. Carmel Church in Mt. Vernon on August 31, 1940. John predeceased her by many years, but their love story lives on in their daughters Janice, Florence Ann & Danielle, grandchildren Leah Ann, Toni Ann, Michael, Jennifer & Susan, and great grandchildren Daniel, Jonathan, Richard, Danielle, Justin, Madison, Tyler, Edward and Evelyn.
Rose also leaves behind many cherished nieces and nephews, and much-loved extended family and friends.
Rose raised her family in Mt. Vernon where she lived for 99 years. She was an active member of her parish, St. Ursula’s Church, and always devoted to her faith. She spent the last years of her life in Connecticut.
Beautiful inside and out, Rose leaves us better people for having known her truly unconditional love and friendship. She taught us to be grateful for every day. Momma, you will always be our hero.
The family will be holding limited private services due to the pandemic, as Rose would want us all to be safe.
In lieu of flowers contributions can be made in Rose’s memory to “The Sunday Mass” at thesundaymass.org or to your favorite charity.
