Rosalia “Rose” Antonia Riccobono, age 47, passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 13, 2019 at Banner Desert Medical Center in Mesa, AZ with her family by her side.
She was born on April 16, 1971, in Milwaukee, WI to Gaetano “Tom” and Santina “Sandy” (La Licata) Riccobono. God daughter to Francesca “Francie” and the late Antonino “Tony” Miosi.
Rose graduated from Pius XI High School in Milwaukee, class of 1989. She enjoyed spending her time with family and friends. Her wonderful sense of humor touched everyone around her and everyone knew how much she loved to laugh. Rose was a true Green Bay Packers Fan and loved sports. Listening to music was her escape. Above all else, she loved and adored her children, they were her world. She wanted nothing more for them than to have a wonderful life.
Rose is survived by her two children, Mario and Mya Soto; two brothers, Jack (Erika) and their 3 children, Dominic (Nea) and their 4 children, many cousins, aunts and uncles, and her parents.
She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
Family, friends, and others whose lives Rose has touched are invited to the Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery, 7900 E. Main St., Mesa, Arizona from 11am-2pm on Monday, January 21, 2019, to reminisce, grieve, support each other and, of course, just chat.
