A Sad Passing...

Yesterday our family matriarch, my great aunt Giorgina (Jean) LaRosa passed at the age of 83. She will be remembered fondly by all who knew her.

Jean Bernardini Rotondo LaRosa, age 83, passed away Tuesday at her home. She was born in Syracuse and worked as a legal secretary and assistant to her husband Andrew with Rotondo Trucking. She was predeceased by her first hus-band, Andrew Rotondo, in 1974, her second husband, Ralph LaRosa, in 1978, and her son, Joseph Rotondo, in 2004. Jean is survived by three sons, John Rotondo of New Jersey, Andrew Rotondo of San Francisco, Mark (Christina) Rotondo of Camillus, NY; six grandchildren; two brothers, Angelo (Elsie) Bernardini of E. Syracuse, Nicholas (Ann) Bernardini of Liverpool; and one sister, Lucy (Dennis) Patota of Syracuse. Funeral services will be held on Saturday at 10 a.m. in the Pirro & Sons Funeral Home and 10:30 a.m. in St. Daniel's Church. Burial will be in the family mausoleum at Assumption Cemetery.
