ForeverMissed
We celebrate the long, beautiful life of Rosalie M. Davis whose earthly life began on October 15, 1938 to Mr. Joseph and Ann Catanese.  Born in Chester, PA. Her life came to a peaceful end surrounded by family in her home on July 6, 2020. 

Rosalie was a very hard worker for many years and retired from Durkee Foods in 2005.  She loved to cook and explore a variety of foods, but her delicious Italian meatballs, spaghetti sauce, chicken cacciatore and crab cakes should have been on a menu in the world’s best Italian Restaurant.  Her friends and family used to tell her that she missed her calling and she should have been cooking for the world, because her delicious dishes would have been famous. 

She had a spunky personality and spoke what was on her mind.  She lit up a room and her laugh was so contagious that she brought a smile to your face. Spending time with her family, grandchildren and friends were her greatest joy.  Her home was filled with so much love and pictures of all those she loved.  We are deeply saddened and we will greatly miss her, she will be forever in our hearts. 

Rosalie was preceded in death by her Parents; former husband Webster C. Davis, brother Pete Catanese and son Donald F. Davis. She is survived by her son Thomas W. Davis, daughter Denise M. Almond, (Michael) , 6 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, and one great granddaughter on the way.  Her siblings; Delores Quinzy, Nancy Brinsfield, Dave Catanese, beloved In-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews, and dear friends.  

Memorial service for Rosalie will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday July 17, 2020 at the Eglington Cemetery, 320 Kings Hwy, Clarksboro, NJ 08020 with Rev. Donald Brasco officiating under the direction of Fertig Funeral Home. Due to Covid 19, mask wearing and social distancing will be required.

It has been difficult to gather the right words to say since mom-mom has passed as my mind has been flooding with all of the memories of her like I am grasping to hold onto any ounce of her so I do not forget the times we had.

She was always there for me. As many of you know she was a constant in my life not only because she lived just down the street for many years but because of our unique family circumstances. I spent a lot of time with my grandmother. I grew up watching cartoons and soap operas. The smell of her home is imprinted in my mind with the lingering aromas of delicious italian dishes that were made with so much love and care.

She was a fiesty pistol that always spoke her mind but also had a sweet and fun loving personality. She was such a strong woman and despite many circumstances and hardships, she perservered. She loved to cook, make you laugh, prank strangers with her partner in crime Tilly, drink coffee, dance, her trip to Italy, buffets, scratch off's, playing the lottery, going to the casino's with my beloved Uncle Donald (RIP), and visiting Las Vegas with her sisters. But even more than she loved those things she loved her grandchildren and great grand children so very much.

She was so giving and always wanted to feed you. She never came to visit empty handed whether it was food she made, sweet treats, or even a gift. I will never forget the noise and giggle she would make while she watched you enjoy her food or open her gift. Her lightly pinching my cheeks or arm saying "audea audea audea". Her hugs, her smile, her laugh, her gold hoops that she always wore, the way she mispronounced words that would have everyone laughing including her. There is so much more I can say as words are just not enough.

I miss her so much but the truth is that I have missed her for quite sometime and these memories are sadly more distant than one would assume. In her final days, I am happy I was able to help advocate for my grandmother and help my mom to care for her although it wasn't as much as I wish I could. I loved her dearly and I will miss her every day. Rest in peace mom-mom.

She was a spunky, vivacious, strong willed, and giving woman who loved on her family and grandbabies with everything she had. Not many people get to have a grandmother like her. I miss this Rosalie.
It's been tough to watch her sparkle fade away over the years of sickness; We are glad she is no longer suffering.

Until we meet again Mommom, these memories I will cherish

I knew Rosalie for a long time. Spent most of my teenage years at her house. Denise and I still continue that friendship today. Rosalie was a special person, she guided alot of us through the drama of our teenage years. She never judged us, it was like talking to a friend. We were always laughing with her, she was so funny,and of course she fed us. I will miss her,as I'm sure many others will. I hope I never forget the sound of your laugh!

Rosalie you were like a mom to me. You gave a listening ear, a ready laugh and always wanted to feed you. I am glad you are walking and leaping and praising God! Love you!

We are going to miss her with all our heart, and all the phone calls, especially when visiting in Virginia Beach, VA and Connecticut getting that great potato salad. We loved her very much
