Rocky Hill - On Oct. 13, 2012, heaven became a brighter place and earth much dimmer with the passing of Roseann Marie (Watson) McCorkle, the much loved and loving wife of David McCorkle of Rocky Hill.
The Guest Book is expired.
Roseann was born on Aug. 21, 1957, to Jack and Angela (Virga) Watson in Norfolk, Va. In 1970 the family moved Waterford. Roseann grew to become a person who genuinely liked and cared about other people. Throughout her life, she was paid back a hundredfold by people who genuinely liked her and cared about her. This is most clearly demonstrated by the outpouring of love from her former co-workers at the Department of Transportation, from which she was forced to leave after over 22 years of service, by the disease that ultimately took her, and from her friends in her Tuesday night bowling league.
Roseann was predeceased by her father.
Left to mourn Roseann's passing from this dimmer earth are her husband, her children, Jacqualine Kullish and partner, Dan Turner, of Hastings, Minn., and Daniel Jamieson and partner, Dawn Emenwein, of Champaign, Ill.; stepchildren, Michael McCorkle of Putnam and Michelle McCorkle-Milardo and husband, Joseph, of Pomfret; and the dual lights of her life, grandchildren, Sophia and Alexander Milardo; her mother and stepfather, Angela and Stephen Molloy of Waterford; brother, David Watson and partner, Janice Jones, of Waterford; sister, Carol Waterman of New London; sister-in-law, Peggy Ruske and her husband, Roger, of Millville, N.J.; and many aunts and uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, all of whom loved her as she did them.
The family would also like to thank for their genuine compassion, caring, and capability, Dr. Susanna Hong and the nurses and staff at the Connecticut Oncology Group and the nurses of Middlesex Hospice and Palliative Care. With every visit from or to Roseann, these people proved, even with the passing of Rose, there are still true angels left on earth.
Her family will recieve relatives and friends from 3 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday at the Impellitteri-Malia Funeral Home, 84 Montauk Ave., New London. The funeral will assemble at 9 a.m. on Thursday from the funeral home and proceed to a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 63 Old Norwich Road, Quaker Hill. Interment will follow in St. Mary Cemetery.
