AGE: 93 • Keyport
Rose M. Ferrara, 93, of Keyport passed away February 18, 2014 at her home. She was born in Newark to her parents the late Frank and Fannie Vitolo Ferrara and lived most all her life in Keyport. Rose retired after many years of service as an employee of General Motors in Linden NJ. She was a communicant of St. Joseph RC Church in Keyport. Rose will be remembered for her selflessness, love, and generosity. She was philanthropic in every sense of her being; giving herself to all those around her whenever she could. Rose was an avid reader and often visited the Keyport Public Library. She enjoyed long walks along the bulkhead and up the streets of town. Rose spent her last years enjoying adventures with her great nieces and nephews; taking them trick-or-treating, to Sandy Hook Beach, and out for ice cream whenever she could. She adored shopping trips to Macy's and Lord & Taylor for her favorite items: perfume and shoes. Those who knew her best will miss her beautiful smile, her kind heart, and her story-telling. She was truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed.
She was predeceased by her parents, brother Ralph Ferrara and sisters Yolanda Kinlan, Genevieve Rogers, and Angelina Ciecierski. Rose is survived by her brother, Rudy Ferrara; two sisters, Mafalda Gage and Johanna Ferrara all of Keyport, several nieces and nephews and her beloved great nieces and nephews, whom she adored.
