August 28th 1917 - February 18th 2023
Born in Bellows Falls, Vermont
Died in Cooper City, Florida
Third of four children to Vera Taylor Cioffi and James Cioffi.
Rose, with her husband Lloyd, moved from Burlington Vermont in 1969 to her home in Park City Estates.
She worked as Office Manager in the insurance department for General Motors for 29 years and 7 months.
In 1974, she became the Founding Member of Saint David Catholic Church, 1st President of the Woman's Club, Saint Vincent de Paul, The Lunch Bunch, 1st Secretary of the Columbettes, and Park City Library. She was a member of Davie Crime Watch and patrolled the streets of her beloved Park City Estates.
On Saturday, February 18th, at 6:34 PM our most exquisite humanitarian and champion for Jesus Christ, peacefully closed her eyes and entered into her eternal life. Throughout the day she was surrounded with love by her dearest friends and adopted family.
At 105 1/2 years old, she read the newspaper from cover to cover each morning and still beat the pants off of anyone at cards. She loved God and The Blessed Mother, the beach, riding in the car, and her "American Beauty." She gave each of us memories we'll never forget.
We will celebrate the infinite love and compassion she shared through her work and throughout her life on March 3rd 2023.
Viewing will be Friday, March 3rd, 2023, 4:30 PM, at Saint David Catholic Church, 3900 South University Drive, Davie, Florida, 33328
