Rosemary U Primiano

February 21, 1953February 9, 2021

Rosemary Uczen Primiano, 67, of Manahawkin, NJ passed away on Tuesday, February 9, 2021. Rosemary grew up in Piscataway, NJ and after marrying, she and Robert moved to Hamilton, NJ, where they raised their daughter. They purchased a summer home in Manahawkin where they would enjoy vacations, in 2013; they became full time residents of Manahawkin.

Her beloved husband of 33 years, Robert, her cherished daughter, Julie and her loving siblings, sister, Karen May and her two brothers, Carl Uczen and David Uczen, survive Rosemary. Her Godchild and niece Katie also survive her.

Rosemary and Robert‘s love story happened in Atlantic City, NJ while on Teacher’s Convention. Distance between did not matter, Robert would drive more than an hour one-way to see her whenever he could. Rosemary was a graduate of Alvernia College in Redding PA, earning her degree in elementary education. She received her Master’s Degree in elementary education at Rutgers College in New Jersey. She taught 1st grade at Roosevelt School in New Brunswick, NJ from where she retired after 33 years. Rosemary was nominated and selected as “Teacher of the Year” twice.

She enjoyed cooking and watching cooking shows to learn new recipes. Her cooking made all the holidays and celebrations extra special. Her occasional trips to Atlantic City were always a fun time, taking boat rides up and down the lagoon were very pleasurable for her, and she loved to spoil her poodles. Above all else, though, she loved her family, she loved spending time with them; they were her top priority. She will be missed.

Graveside services will be held Thursday, February 18th ,12:30 PM at St. Mary's Cemetery, 283 Beachview Avenue. Manahawkin, NJ 08050.

Rosemary's family request memorial contributions to S. Jude Children's Hospital, Memphis Tenn.

Rosemary was a close friend and we enjoyed good times when
she was single and married. She will remain in my memories
forever as a very close friend that I loved and cherished
she had a contagious smile and laugh that would light up a
room, She loved her husband and daughter dearly they were
her life. She will remain in my thoughts forever.
When she was single we would go out and always have a
fun time together laughing and joking about life. A friend that
I miss and will always remember dearly. FOREVER
