Rosa was born in Tursi Italy, a small southern Italian town. She lived and went to school there until the age of 23, at that point her family moved to the much bigger town of Matera. Here the family owned and ran a small café.
At the age of 30 Rosa met and married Domenico Longo and shortly after moved to the US settling in Rochester, NY. Rosa had one son Agostino, and worked at Eastman Kodak Co. for many years. After retirement Rosa enjoyed her daughter-in-law, Maria & her two grandchildren, Alexandra and Domenic whom she loved and adored dearly.
Rosa loved Italian music, dancing, and was quite social striking up conversation and meeting new people throughout her life. She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
