Marion Rose Roscio

Marion Rose Roscio, 79, entered into eternal rest surrounded by her family on Monday, Jan. 13, 2014, after a brief illness.

Born on May 16, 1934, to Stephen and Christine Morgano of Enfield, Marion was a graduate of Enfield High School. She worked at Pratt & Whitney, where she met her future husband, Alfred Roscio, whom she married in 1953. Marion was an outstanding homemaker, an accomplished musician, and actress, and had played several lead roles with the South Windsor Country Players. After raising three children she turned her talents toward working in the aerospace industry where she was a principal in two companies that helped bring Israeli aerospace firms, Carmel Forge and Iscar Blades, work in the United States with both Pratt & Whitney Aircraft and the Department of Defense. She later went on to finance her son's purchase of Numet Machining Techniques, an Orange aerospace firm. She spent the last 20 years enjoying golfing at Ellington Ridge and Manchester Country Club along with displaying amazing culinary talents in the kitchen. Her talent for music, fashion, style, and cooking prowess have been passed onto her three children as well as many of her seven grandchildren.

Marion is survived by her two sisters, Roseanne Knoepfle of Enfield; nieces, Jennifer and Kirsten and Stephanie Smith of Enfield; and nephew, Christopher; her son, Mark and daughter-in-law, Nancy, and Michelle of Glastonbury; daughters, Christine Roscio of Rocky Hill, and Suzanne Kostyk, and her husband, David Kostyk, of Tolland; seven grandchildren, Meghan and Michael Diloretto of East Lyme, Mark Roscio and fiancée, Adriana, of Cromwell, David Denino of South Windsor, Jennifer and Ben Kolenda of New Smyrna, Ga., Breanne Kostyk of Birmingham Ala., Nina Kostyk of Littleton Colo., and Matt Kostyk of Tolland. She is also a proud great-grandmother of Kaitlyn, Gianna, and Anthony Diloretto, Eleanor and Benjamin Kolenda, along with a future great-grandson, Mark Roscio, due in June.

Calling hours will be held at the Samsel & Carmon Funeral Home, 419 Buckland Road, South Windsor, on Friday, Jan. 17, from 5 to 8 p.m. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at a later date to be determined by the family.

She will be missed dearly.
