Over the years, she made many friends as well and was a well-loved and respected member of the community.

I have many fond memories of Aunt Rose, always happy and smiling!
I am sure there will be a family reunion for her when she joins the rest of the Smerillo’s in heaven. My mother,Agnes, will be joining them as well in the coming days, so we will not be there to celebrate Rose’s life with you. Know that our hearts will be, and you will all be in our thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace, Aunt Rose.
Love to all,
Elaine and Fred
Although it has been many years since I have seen Aunt Rose, she was always a joy to be around. I have many fond memories from when I was a child. I am sorry that Deirdre and I can’t get to Cleveland for her Funeral Service.
We share your sorrow and will keep Aunt Rose in our prayers always.
Aunt Rose was one of my favoites
