On November 25, 1950, Rose married Richard “Dick” Bain; they shared a loving union of 62 years prior to his death in 2013. Rose and Dick were the parents of four daughters: infant twins, Jean and Jeanette who died shortly after birth in 1954 and Rebecca and Roberta who survive her.
Rose is also survived by her brother Richard (Jean) Ferlito, Estill Springs, Tennessee; three sisters – Serena Sweet, Canandaigua, New York, Sharon (Zvonimir) Babic, Colorado Springs, and Shirley Nobel, Denver, Colorado, as well as several nieces and nephews. Her longtime and beloved furry companion, Sammy also survives. In addition to her parents and infant twin daughters, Rose was predeceased by three brothers, William, John and Wayne Ferlito and a sister, Anna Jean Ferlito Laragh.
Rose was a dedicated homemaker and stay-at-home mom. Her past interests have included the Home Bureau, volunteering as a Girl Scout Leader, bowling and she loved playing Bingo, especially taking the bus to the Turning Stone Casino until she no longer felt well enough to go. Rose had a true love and passion for gardening and her beautiful flower gardens will continue to give much pleasure to everyone for many years to come.
