Obituary for Rosaria Coretto
Rosaria Coretto (nee Tripi) passed away peacefully on July 18, 2017, after a long struggle with dementia. Born 1921 in Brooklyn, she left school to work as a seamstress during the Great Depression, helping her brothers Phil and Charlie support their family.

She loved music and dancing, and will always be remembered as a tireless worker, an optimist, and a survivor who was remarkable for her kindness, generosity, and loving spirit in the face of adversity. She is survived by her son, his wife, Suzanne, her grandchildren Max and Elizabeth, her nieces Patricia Radzikowski and Deborah Ann, and her nephews Richard and Robert Tripi.
