Rose graduated in 1948 from Bay Ridge High School in Brooklyn and was a homemaker and mother to her five children for most of her adult life. She later worked as an Executive Secretary at E.I. du Pont de Nemours in New York and New Jersey until retiring and moving to Massachusetts in 1993.

She is survived by her sons, Vincent (Cheryl) and James (Maria) Palermo; daughters, Julie Cadorette (Jason), Mary Stone (Gregory), and Rose Palermo (Tony Castro); brother, Anthony DelGatto; sister, Rita Romano; and many beloved cousins, nieces and nephews.

She loved all the holidays, the beautiful outdoors, and the charms of New England, especially Pickety Place in New Hampshire.
