RAVENA – Rose C. Wolfe, in the early hours of Thursday morning, May 30, 2013, just as the sun was cresting the horizon Mom slipped away very peacefully in her sleep.  She was born March 4, 1922 in Coeymans daughter of the late Dominick and Rose Bruno.  She was predeceased by her husband Arthur after 39 years of marriage.  Rose was a resident of Ravena for most of her life, moving to Craneville Place, Dalton, MA in 2010 due to her illness. 

     Rose worked hard all her life, leaving school at age 14 and entering the work force to help her Mother support her family after her father died at age 27.  Mom worked at many occupations during her life, more recent at the Shephards Farm Resort in Greenville alongside her husband and at St. Patrick’s Parish House where she retired at age 77.  Mom loved to cook, bake and was a very talented knitter.  She was very proud of her heritage.  If you met her for the first time she would quickly inform you that she was Italian.  Family was everything to her, especially her mother who she cherished and watched over her entire life.  She loved just being around her grandchildren and held a very special place in her heart for her many nieces and nephews.  She was a life communicant of St. Patrick’s Parish and was active in fundraising and social events.

    

     She leaves behind a loving son Anthony and daughter- in -law Donna Wolfe;  three grandsons, Pieter (Amanda), Ryan (Brenda Peck) and Justin (Sandra);  six great-grandchildren, Cody, Joshua, Carter, Maggie, Cooper, and Logan;  step-great-granddaughter, Hailey Hoffman;  two sisters, Anna (deceased Carmen) Libertucci and Edith “Lou” (Anthony) Germano;  and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews and a great-great-niece.  Rose was predeceased by her brother Anthony (Nancy) Bruno and Bert P. Bruno.

 

     A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated 10:30 AM Monday June 3rd, at St. Patrick’s Church, Ravena. A calling hour will precede the Mass starting at 9:30am.  In lieu of flowers the family requests a donation to St. Patrick’s Food Pantry, 21 Main Street, Ravena NY 12143.
