Rosalind, was a loving and devoted mother and grandmother whose life revolved around her family. She was very proud of her children and their many accomplishments having special bonds with each one of them, and was the happiest when they were all together. RoRo was especially devoted to the care of her dear daughter Patricia Ann, who passed away in 1984. She truly enjoyed bingo and her many trips to the "mall". She also loved to knit and crochet, making several blankets and special knits, donating them to the church, for the benefit of others. A woman of love and character, she will be sadly missed, but never forgotten. She was a devoted parishioner of Mt. Carmel/Blessed Sacrament Church.

She was predeceased by her loving daughter Patricia Ann Nicoletta in 1984 and her brother William R. Basile, Sr. in 2003.
