Rose was born in Passaic to Giandolfa and John Mancuso. She moved to East Rutherford in 1957 and has lived in the same house for the past 63 years. Rose worked for Walter Kidde for thirty years as a line supervisor. Her greatest joy came from cooking delicious Italian food for her family. Everyone came together for pasta, gravy and meatballs every Sunday and Thursday. She enjoyed spending time in Lavallette with the whole family which was a special time for her each summer. Quilting and crocheting were a favorite pastime along with watching Jeopardy and going to IHOP and Atlantic City with Joyce.
