Affordable Cremation and Burial Service - Las Vegas Obituary

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.

A Graveside Service and Blessing will be on July 2 , 2020 at Palm Mortuary 7600 S Eastern Avenue Las Vegas, NV 89123

Rosie I will miss your laugh, teasing, jokes and yes even complaining. So many fond memories that I will cherish as a child, how you taught me the right way to color always staying inside the lines, Monopoly on Grandma's kitchen table, waiting for the Ice Cream Truck and how you would squeeze Grandma's arm so hard cause you loved her so much it would turn black and blue. You loved your family, loved to clean and always had enough cleaning supplies for the whole neighborhood. Too many...

I met Rosemary when I married her Uncle Ray Paglia, when she was three years old. She was a cute little girl, a bundle of energy and smart as a whip. She demanded attention from everyone and was very attached to her Daddy. I remember the time he put a bowl on her head and cut her hair. We were furious with him, but she loved it cause Daddy did it. She had nicknames for everybody in the family. She called my late husband Cash in a Flash and then later Father. She was entertaining for sure. I...
