Tributes for

Sangiacom, Rosetta

Rosetta Sangiacomo, better known to all as "Auntie Rose" died peacefully in her San Francisco home overlooking the beautiful Golden Gate. She is survived by her loving and admiring brother Angelo Sangiacomo and her sister-in-law Yvonne Sangiacomo; seven nieces and nephews and thirteen great nieces and nephews: Anna & Barry Kane (Mary Nadine, Bobby), Sandro & Jeannie Sangiacomo (Giancarlo, Mica, Angelo), Jim & Gerry Sangiacomo (Christina, Natalie, Stefano, Isabella), Mark & Joyce Sangiacomo, Maryanne Sangiacomo (Lorenzo, Leonardo), Mia & Marty Gaehwiler (Martina, Marco) and Susan Sangiacomo & Diana Pelliccione.
Auntie Rose was born to Caterina and Alessandro Sangiacomo in Borlasca, Province of Genoa, Italy on July 1, 1920. When she was one year old her family moved to San Francisco, where she lived until her passing. For over 50 years she worked closely with her brother Angelo, creating a successful family business. She dedicated her life to her work and family. She cared for her mother throughout her life and was the most loyal sister in the world. Their bond as brother and sister was like no other.
While Auntie had no children she treated all her nieces and nephews as if we were her kids, with great amounts of love and nurturing. We have fond memories of spending time with her at Golden Gate Park, Playland at the Beach, summers in Santa Cruz, and trips to Disneyland. She spent summers with her family in Italy, in the town where she was born.
Auntie Rose had a strong faith and a great devotion to the Blessed Mother and the Madonna Della Guardia. She loved people and people loved her. She loved to talkā€¦. a lot! You can't think of Auntie Rose without a smile on your face. There are too many funny stories. She loved animals and was happy to get visits from Baci, Lucy and Rosie. In her younger years she would visit Golden Gate Park and feed the ducks.
The family would like to thank the wonderful caregivers who took great care of Auntie Rose: Gloria, Jose, Marissa, Mary, Pelani, Jane, Harriette and all at HGA. Because of your love, kindness and support, Auntie was able to remain in the home she loved and live out her life in comfort and with proper care. The comfort and support you provided over the years is truly appreciated.
Family and friends are invited to attend the Rosary at 2:00 pm followed by a Funeral Mass on Friday, September 19, 2014 at Saints Peter and Paul Church, 668 Filbert Street, San Francisco.
