Rest in Peace Sweet Rose! My condolences Annette, Sal and family. May you have comfort and peace at this sad time. Of course my memories of the family go way back to the 50's and they are some of the fondest in my life! Yo Sal and Annette as we used to call one another way before cell phones. You are always in my heart and in my prayers. Love and Hugs Nancy

Rose Guccione is the mother of my best friend from childhood, Jeannie. Mrs. Guccione always treated me so well and was very patient with us. I loved going over to the house to play and I often stayed overnight, where I was treated like part of the family. Mrs. Guccione was a modern mom, taking care of the kids, keeping the household going, working for the family business, all the while being a model of beauty, grace and strength. Four decades later I was fortunate enough to reconnect with the family and have lunch with her. (I made sure that I took a seat right next to her). She was as beautiful and kind as ever. I remember her telling me, “You can call me Rose now”, but I couldn’t make the change. She will always be Mrs. Guccione to me, a woman I greatly admire and whose kindness I will never forget. My heart goes out to Sal, Annette and the rest of the family.

I remember visiting Aunt Rose in the summertime when our family came to Chicago from our home in Florida. As a young girl, I used to spend weekends with my cousins. Aunt Rose used to take us to The Little Corporal, downtown for breakfast, or she would buy groceries for my cousins and me to take to Mrs. Emerson, a widow in the neighborhood who had fallen on hard times. She was always giving or doing things for others. One of my last most memorable times we spent together was when I was older. The two of us shared a room at one of the downtown Chicago hotels, staying up until the wee hours of the morning, reminiscing, laughing and telling secrets. I never thought I could love her more or feel closer to her, but I did. One word always comes to mind when I think of her: ”kindness”.
