Rose A Blasco (nee Gagliano)
June 1 1924 - May 2 1997

Beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother.

Rose Blasco of Lake Zurich, IL. passed away on May 2, 1997. Rose is survived by her husband, Mr. Anthony Blasco and her seven children, Angelica, Anna Marie, Marilyn, Norman (Onofrio), Dominic, Joanne, and Teresa. Grandmother of Kenneth, Patrick, Angie, Shannon, Michelle, Roseanne, Susan, Allen, Anthony, Joanne, Anna Marie, Jennifer, Nicole, Crystal, Dominique, Onofrio, Joseph, Michael, Anthony, Billy, Nicky, and Robby.

Words to describe exactly how wonderful Rose actually was would truly take an eternity. The love and joy that she brought into people's lives is immeasurable.

Born Rose Gagliano to the late Domenico and Anna Gagliano (nee Zambito) in 1924. Her father passed away when she was only three and most of her upbringing was provided by her paternal grandparents. Rose was the sister of the late Anthony Gagliano, Laura, and Palma(Babe).

Mrs. Blasco spent her early years taking care of her in-laws along with her seven children. As a grandmother she wiped away the tears and cared for many scraped knees. As a mother, her children and grandchildren alike, attest to her dedication and love as the matriarch of the family as unconditional and never ending.

Rose was a natural in the kitchen! Family, friends, and neighbors alike looked forward to the large Italian dinners that were a tradition every Sunday. Rose was indeed a true hostess.

Toward the latter part of her life, Rose started to have problems with her legs and had a rough time getting around. Her last two and a half years were spent bedridden due to kidney failure. Rose suffered very much during that time and her entire family kept vigil at her bedside. On May 2, 1997, Rose took her last breaths while in a coma. The loss of our Rose will stay with us our entire lives. Till we are reunited in Heaven, our lives will always be incomplete.
