Obituary for Rosalia Marino

Rosalia Marino (nee Scaglione) 83, passed away peacefully in her home after a long battle with dementia. She was surrounded by love near and far on September 16, 2020.

Loving Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother Rosalia was born a twin on July 15, 1937 in San Fratello, Sicily, Italy. At 18 years of age Rosalia immigrated to America with her father, Cirino Scaglione early 1956 and attended night school for foreigners at New Utrecht High School, Brooklyn, NY. She met her late husband
of 58 years, Vincenzo on the "N" Train in Brooklyn, NY in 1957 and was married in December 1958 at St. Athanasius R.C. Church, Brooklyn, NY.

Rosalia worked various part-time jobs through the years as a seamstress and sales assistant, but she was primarily a Homemaker, Loving Wife, Caring Daughter to her Parents, Wonderful Mom, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother. She dedicated much of her time to her family.

Rosalia loved to live well, love much and laugh often. She truly loved children and all animals and cared for many. She was known to help heal local injured cats and birds that somehow found their way to her home.

She was a passionate and tender woman with a big heart filled with selfless love. The word 'Love' remained constantly in her vocabulary until the end.

She adored blueberry pancakes on Sunday mornings and enjoyed many evenings savoring her favorite Gelato.

All throughout her life Horses held a special meaning in her heart. As a young girl she rode bareback in her childhood town which is renowned for their beautiful Wild Horses.

As a Catholic she had a strong Faith in God and was devoted to St. Anthony. She had a beautiful spirit and loved nature, gardening, cooking, baking, and loved to share her bountiful harvest with family and friends. Her home was always open to them.

Rosalia was predeceased by her late husband Vincenzo early 2017. She is survived by her daughters Marie Gentile (Antonio) and Rosanna Arndt (Regan); Grandchildren Maria Christina Weaver (Thomas), Nicholas Gentile (Christina), Vincent Gentile (Annamaria); and Great-Grandchildren Mackenzie, Julianna, Alyssa, Chelsea Leah, Anthony. Predeceased as well by her twin sister Nicoletta and brother Salvatore who both died as children, and her older sister Francesca Gambitta. She is survived by her younger sister Maria Theresa Randazzo, and many nieces and nephews.

What an honor and pleasure it was to know Mama Rosalia. I was her caregiver but she also became my friend as did Rosanna and Regan. I am in awe of the care and support they provided mama. She was so silly and funny and I will miss her belly laughs and the Italian music she loved. Ride those horses mama. Forever in my heart. So beautiful to have known you.
