Rose Marie (Gallik) Carson Obituary

Rose Carson departed her loving family on Sept. 25, 2020.

She was born on June 4, 1934, to John and Sophie (Kresock) Gallik.

Rose was mother to Bill, Teresa, Cindy and Dennis. She raised her children with duty and love in Waymart with her husband, Tony. Rose and Tony would have celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on Oct. 22.

As a practicing Catholic, Rose was known for her devotion to her faith and her family. Settling within walking distance from her childhood homestead, Rose spent her adult years taking care of her mother's needs while raising her own family. A 1952 graduate of Honesdale High School, Rose worked as a teller in the Honesdale National Bank, and she worked for 20 years as a payroll clerk for the County of Wayne until retirement.

She was proud of her involvement in the Catholic Daughters, the Altar & Rosary Society, and of her volunteer work with the St. Mary's Block Party, the American Cancer Society and, for 12 years, with the American Red Cross Blood Mobile. In retirement, she thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Tony on trips to Nova Scotia, Hawaii, Alaska and many other states as displayed in her magnet collection on the refrigerator in the kitchen of their home.

In addition to her husband, Tony, Rose is survived by her son, Bill and wife, Joyce, Hawley, Pa.; her daughter, Dr. Teresa, Brooklyn N.Y.; her daughter, Cindy and husband, Ed Bianchi, Waymart, Pa.; her son, Dennis, Waymart, Pa.; and her granddaughter, Adena Bianchi, Pittsburgh, Pa.

Aside from her immediate family, Rose, one of 11 Gallik children, is survived by her sisters, Sophie Benney, Glen Burnie, Md.; Ceil Janezic, Yardley, Pa.; Mary Davitt and husband, Jerry, Youngsville, N.Y.; and Adele Mansfield, Odenton, Md.; sister-in-law, Anna Mae Gallik, Denville, N.J.; and many nieces and nephews.

As her family, we know Rose appreciated the visits, telephone calls and cards sent to her, and the care provided by the dedicated staff of the Ellen Memorial Nursing Home.

Funeral services will be private and at the convenience of the family.

Arrangements made through the Hessling Funeral Home, Honesdale, Pa.
