This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Rosaleen Barazzone . We will remember her forever. Rosaleen was a fierce, funny and loving lady. Her hobbies included spending time at the beach, painting, stained glass, sewing, going to church, collecting & making wooden birds and displaying her many paintings. Family will remember her incomparable beauty, lovely gardens and selfless willingness to help others in need.

Rosaleen believed in the Sacred Heart and the Divine Mercy. She also believed in all things chocolate. She brought healing and comfort to friends, family and strangers. She loved her family fiercely and always kept her door open for a fireside chat. She made sure to travel home to Ireland as often as possible to visit her sisters and brothers.

Rosaleen’s robust personality and wit leaves behind an echo that will be cherished by all who knew her.
