It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Rosemarie Brisolari on Tuesday, July 19, 2022. Rosemarie was 83 years old, born on June 22, 1939, in the Bronx to the late Joseph and Josephine Romano.
On January 23, 1960, Rosemarie married Ronald Brisolari. They eventually moved to Rockland County where they raised their beautiful family together. Rosemarie worked for New York State for over 20 years. She was an active member of the Italian American Club Ladies Auxiliary and the West Haverstraw Senior Club.
