Rose Marie (Popp) Witter Obituary
Rose Marie Witter (Popp)

AGE: 79 •

3/19/1937 - 2/19/ 2017

Rose Marie was born in Jersey City on March 19, 1937 and graduated from Saint Aloysius High School in 1954. Two years later Rose married the love of her life, Joseph Witter and they eventually settled down at the Jersey Shore in Brick, NJ. Joe opened Witter's Service and Rose helped with keeping the books.

Rose also remained active in volunteering, especially Brick Hospital fund raising and later on would realize a dream of her own when she opened Tomorrows Heirlooms Gifts in Toms River. Rose also loved gardening, keeping the property in bloom all year round, spent time reading her book collection and enjoying the arts.

In 1992, Rose Marie and Joe retired and moved to Cape Coral, Florida. Sadly it was short lived as Joe passed in 1994 and year later while on a visit to NJ, Rose suffered a massive stroke.

Rose Marie lived another 21 years due in large part to the consistent care by her eldest daughter Laura who cared for mom in her home during that whole time. Despite her condition, Rose kept a smile and continued to inspire all her children and grandchildren.

Rose was predeceased by her husband Joseph and her brothers Larry and Ambrose and her grandson Kyle.

She is survived by her children, daughters Laura, Sheila, Melinda and Karyn and son Eric, 11 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren and many others that will miss her
