RoseAnn is also survived by her two step-sons, William (Rosemary) Hunt and Timothy (Christiana) Hunt as well as six step-grandchildren. Besides being a lifelong resident of New Rochelle, she was a faithful parishioner of Holy Family Church, where she was also a lector and Eucharistic minister.

The family of RoseAnn Hunt would like to express their gratitude to her numerous doctors who administered exceptional care; most especially her primary physician, Dr. Martin B. Engelhardt Ill and her godson, Michael J. Fosina, former president of New York Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital.
As time continued, RoseAnn was able to endure and enjoy the simple pleasures of life, specifically her faith, family and many friends due to the extraordinary attention given to her these last few years.
Therefore, we offer them a modest thank you for the compassion that they exhibited towards our mother. Their tireless dedication to their patients as well as their families went well beyond the scope of
