Rosaria Calanni, 61, passed away early Friday morning in the arms of her loving husband. Born in Italy, Rosa and her family migrated to the US from Sciara when she was twelve years old.
Rosa worked for over 30 years running the Iona Prep cafeteria. Family and food were her passion. You could always find her table surrounded by those she loved and fed. Her generosity and grace will be missed by everyone who knew her.
Rosa leaves behind her beloved husband, Bruno of 43 years, her three sisters, Gina; Maria and Nina, along with many nieces and nephews. She will be met in heaven by her baby girl, Lucia.
Visiting is Sunday 4-8pm. A Funeral Mass will be held at Blessed Sacrament in New Rochelle on Monday at 10:30am. Interment will follow at Beechwoods Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family asks for donations to the Make A Wish foundation.
