Rosemary A. Palmiotto
July 22, 1935 - October 18, 2019
Rosemary A. Palmiotto, 84 of Naples, Florida formerly of Ossining, New York passed away peacefully on October 18, 2019.
Rosemary was born to William and Elizabeth “Betty” (Breen) Hanrahan on July 22, 1935 in Ossining, New York.
Rosemary graduated Ossining High School in 1953.
Throughout her life, Rosemary worked in many roles, at AT&T in New York City, a sales associate and bookkeeper in Ossining and ultimately retiring from the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers as an accounting auditor in 2002. Rosemary married the love of her life, her gentle and kind husband, John on February 4, 1956 and together raised their family in Ossining. They spent 46 wonderful years by each other’s side before John’s passing in 2002. Later that year she moved to St. Charles, Missouri and then Colleyville, Texas. Rosemary loved her time in the Midwest and South, creating many wonderful memories and making new friends along the way before settling in Naples.
Rosemary is survived by two sons, John Jr.(Sharon) of Buchanan, NY, Vincent (Cathleen) of Sandy Hook, CT one daughter Kathleen (Kevin) Palmiotto-Lyons of Naples, FL, four grandchildren, Jill, Daniel, John III, Mary Kate, and one great granddaughter Nora Joanne. Rosemary also leaves behind many adoring relatives and friends to cherish her memories.
She was predeceased by her parents, her husband, brother William Hanrahan and daughter-in-law Joanne (DiDomizio) Palmiotto.
Rosemary was never without her infectious smile, a kind word and her hilarious quick wit.
Rosemary will always be remembered for her compassion and generous spirit. Her heart was full and she was incredibly proud of her children and grandchildren’s life accomplishments.
Rosemary was also very proud of her Irish heritage but preferred her cabernet over a Guinness.
Rosemary was an avid music lover, her taste ranged from her “boyfriend” Andrea Bocelli whom she had seen twice live in concert to Dan and Shay, Bruno Mars and everything in between. Her favorite past times were attending live musical, comedy and theatrical performances, dining and shopping around town and enjoying the gulf view from the Naples Pier. Rosemary loved to travel and enjoyed years of flying on TWA and American Airlines, always ready for any adventure! An extremely passionate animal lover, she will be missed most by her beloved black Texas rescue kitty Lulu. Rosemary loved and cared for all of God’s creatures and enjoyed the amazing nature watching and glorious sunsets from her Naples lanai.
Most important to Rosemary were the special times she shared with her loving, extended family and friends.
