Rosemary Paglia went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 23, 2020. Rosemary is preceded in death by her father Nicholas Paglia, her mother Virginia Paglia, her nephew Michael D’Annunzio, her brother Nicholas A Paglia, her sister Gail Paglia, and her sister Christine Amato. She is survived by her brother-in-law Richard Amato; her sister-in-law Marianne Paglia; her nephews Chris Amato, Nicholas D’Annunzio (Tara) and Nicholas J. Paglia (Angelica); her nieces Nicole Amato; Tina Amato Salerno; Alexandra Rea (Gino) and Gia Paglia; and six great nieces, including adults Brooke Bertinelli (Brandyn), Lauren Pyle, and Amanda Amato , and five great nephews, including adults Richard Amato, Dustin Amato, and one “great great” nephew.
Rosemary began her life in Cleveland, Ohio on December 23, 1950. She moved to Las Vegas with her mother and her brother Nicholas in 1975. Rosemary has been a constant daughter companion to her mother until her mother’s death and then a living sibling companion to each and every one of her siblings until their deaths. Rosemary was a special human being and had deep love for her cousins and her uncles, even calling her uncles “Dad” because her father had passed at such a young age. Both of her uncles, Ray Paglia and Lido Paglia, were extremely important to her in her life, and her many loving cousins as well.
You could often find Aunt Rosie at Sunset Station enjoying many of her friends, at least twice a week and sometimes three, referring to these staff members as her “family.“ Rosie had a nickname for every single person. Those of us who know her well, can we count the names that she had for us.
Aunt Rosie was an epileptic but maintained a high functioning life and always looked beautiful and presentable everywhere she went. She enjoyed weekly baths with Jean Nate’ body splash and had a deep love and appreciation for visiting her family members. Aunt Rosie had deep love and respect for anyone who had a smile for her, and anyone who took her phone calls. She was very loving and didn’t like to see anyone argue.
Her approach to life was childlike and innocent. Aunt Rosie was brilliant with numbers and with people’s names and always remembered everybody. She had a deep love for her family. She will be missed on this earth every single day. Taking care of her was an honor and a joy. Rest in peace, our sweet angel.
