Rose Marie Dulo (nee Chiaccio)

(Mar 2, 1917 to Sep 30, 2012)

Rose was nothing if not a spitfire. In fact, it’s even how she described herself. Only fitting then, that during WWII she answered the call to become Rosie the Riveter and help Boeing support the war effort. During her many years in Riverside Rose could often be found bowling with the local leagues or serving up delights from her kitchen. A consummate homemaker and dedicated mother, although she worked outside of the home she still found time to make every meal from scratch; nothing was ever from a can. But if she is remembered for her wonderful cooking, she’s more so for her wonderful spirit. When she was with her late sister Emily Camardo, the two did nothing but laugh. When it was time for travel, she loved anywhere she could bask in the sun. Atlantic City and Las Vegas were favorites; both had ample amounts of sunshine and plenty of slot machines.rn Rose Marie is the wife of the late Steven Dulo and mother of Annette Apicella (Joseph) of Mt. Royal and the late Donald Devito. She is the grandmother of Michael Apicella (Roxanne), Anne-Marie Leone and Barbara Zanghi (Ken) and is survived by her 10 great-grandchildren and her sister, Helen Thurman.rn Come celebrate Rose’s 95 feisty years (March 2, 1917-September 30, 2012) Wednesday from 8-10 AM at the Sweeney Funeral Home 337 Bridgeboro St. Riverside. Mass of Christian Burial to follow at 10:30 AM at Jesus the Good Shepherd Church (St. Peter’s Site), Riverside. Interment St. Peter’s Cemetery.rn

    AUNT ROSIE YOU’LL BE MISSED. BUT WHEN YOU GET TO HEAVEN TELL THE PUPPY DOG (UNCLE STEVE) YOUR IN HIS HANDS NOW. AND WHEN YOU SEE MY MOTHER AND FATHER SEE IF THEY HAVE A CASINO UP THERE SO YOU AND MY MOM CAN PLAY ALL DAY. I LOVE YOU ALL.

    Dear Annetta & Family- She enjoyed life! What better tribute to a Mother can we give? Treasure her will to live joyfully-it can be one of life’s most difficult paths. You can be sure whether she is playing the slots up above or preparing a holiday feast for the family, she’ll wave to you. Keep those memories alive and laugh along with her-she is in a joyful place.

    I’m so sorry to hear of this sad news. It was so good to see “Aunt Rose” at the last family reunion-she had the distinct honor of being our oldest relative there!n I am not able to attend the services because of work, but please know I will be thinking of the family and pray for your comfort at this time.n
