Rose Marie Keeves born April 17,1941, went to be with the Lord on February 2, 2013. She was born to Peter and Pauline Gatto in Montclair, NJ and moved to Merritt Island in 1973.
Rose touched many lives with her kind heart, soft spoken nature and generosity. She was an entrepreneur most of her life owning and operating businesses that ranged from a hair salon to a restaurant/bar to an ice cream shop. She considered her home daycare her greatest achievement and it was the business she enjoyed the most.
Rose is survived by her mother, Pauline Gatto; son, Peter (Beth) Keeves and her daughter Kelly Oliver. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Michael, Tabitha, Antonio, Thomas and Jayrnee.
The family would like to express a special thank you to our angel Jennifer McDowell and the staff at the Health Center of Merritt Island.
A celebration of Roses life will be held at 3 pm on February 9, 2013 at the Calvary Chapel of Merritt Island 3500 N. Courtenay Pkwy Merritt Island, FL 32953. Everyone is welcome.
