CIRYAK, Rosemary

Rosemary Ciryak (nee Schmitt) Age 78.  Beloved wife of 57 years to the late Donald Sr.  Dearest mother of Susan Gnandt (John, deceased), Donald D. Jr. (Jackie), John (Diana), Daniel (Renee), and Christopher (Traci).  Loving grandmother of Donald III, Andrew, Tara, Kyla, Cassandra, Madeline, Ashley, Matthew, Isaac, Justin, Hannah, and Lillian.  Dear sister of Rita Kelbach (deceased) (Greg, deceased), Louis Saunders (deceased), and Erna Coyne (deceased) (David).  She was a dear aunt, great aunt, and friend to many.

Rose was a generous, loving, sharp witted woman with a great sense of humor and a knack for numbers.  She never missed a birthday, anniversary, or any other significant date in any of her friends’ or family’s lives.  She had a kind, compassionate way about her and was always there to listen whenever someone wanted to talk. 

Rose loved knitting and crocheting and even enjoyed an occasional glass of wine.  She always put her family first and never complained about anything.  She was grateful for her loving family that cared for her until the very end.  She will never be forgotten and will stay in our hearts forever.  Rose was loved dearly by her family and will be deeply missed by all that knew her.  We are comforted to know that she is in a better place.

  8. Don, Rose and our family had an enduring friendship for almost 55 years. Paul and I visited Rose at SW Hospital before she moved with Dan and Renee. She was comfortable and as sharp as ever. We spent almost three hours on a trip down memory lane — and there were a lot of memories. We both cherish that time we spent and it is the best memory of her that I will ever have.
    To all the Ciryaks, your loss is our loss.
    Jan and the entire Golden family

  9. So sorry to hear of Rosie’s passing. I had hoped to see her at the SSH class reunion last year. Always her sweet laugh would warm your heart. I was honored to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. Her hubby Don and her were a perfect couple. She had many friends and a lending ear. Shalom until we meet again Dear friend…..

  10. My deepest sympathy to the Ciryak family. Rosie and Don and their family have been friends of mine for about 45 years. Truly a wonderful family.
    Rosie will be truly missed but no longer suffering and now in heaven with Don. God bless her family. Love Jo

  11. Our deepest condolences. I used to love listening to my mom banter with Rosie – Rosie was always so quick and sharp with her responses – my mom would be tearing up through all of her laughter; I could only wish to have such wit. Our thoughts, prayers and love are with your families.

  12. To Rose’s Family,
    Your Mom always made me laugh. Even when I was in pain at Family Chiropratic. In my early years going there she made me feel better by being there. Its a sad day to hear about her passing. She will be missed by many.

  13. I was fortunate to meet Rose at her son, Chris’ chiropractic office where she worked for a period of time. She was a delight to get to know and to talk with. She brightened my day through conversation and I missed our times of connection when she no longer worked at the office. My condolences to the family. I sure Rose will be missed by her family and friends. She was a sweet woman. Bonnie

  14. As a former employee of “Automatic” Sprinkler I worked across the hall from her. I have missed her since the company has closed. And I am wishing her many years of peace in the heavenly realm.
    God Bless her and give her family peace and joy in remembering her.

  15. It was always a pleasure to be with Rose. She really enjoyed volunteering at the Casino during the Holy Family Church Festival. I could count on her and enjoyed her sense of humor, our conversations and friendship.

  16. I so enjoyed having Rose in my chair yoga class at Middleburg heights rec Center. She was spunky, witty and had one of those personalities that made my job really pleasurable. She didn’t complain and she pushed on even when she was in pain. Rose may your voyage to the other side be full of great memories and knowing that you did live life in a great way. Namaste my friend ♥️

  17. Rose will be greatly missed. We shared books and stories when she was working for Chris. She was a lovely lady. She is no longer in pain. RIP Rose.
    Prayers to the family.

  18. Please accept my condolences on the death of my cousin Rosie. We grew up together. Her father and my father were brothers. I will miss her smile.
