Rose Marie Mangiameli of Warwick (formerly of Pleasantville) passed away peacefully after a long illness on Thursday, Dec. 2, 2021, just days after her 93rd birthday.
Born in Mount Vernon on Nov. 30, 1928, she was the daughter of Salvatore “Sam” and Anna (Torano) Evelle.
Prior to retiring, Rose worked in the Pleasantville Pharmacy in Pleasantville for many years. After retiring, she spent more than 20 years volunteering at Mt. Alverno Center and St. Anthony Community Hospital. She was actively involved in the Women’s Sodality, Altar Society and Rosary Society at St. Stephen’s Church.
Rose loved her family; they were her world. She loved to cook for them and was always trying new recipes. The favorites have become family traditions.
