Rose Balgo Peters, of Cape Canaveral, Florida, passed away peacefully in Rockledge on September 15th at the age of 83.

Rose is survived by her loving daughter Kelly Mardis, and dear sister Genevieve Balgo of Merritt Island. She is pre-deceased by her loving parents John and Bertha Balgo, and siblings Robert Balgo, Albert Balgo, Joseph Balgo, Louise Mason, Frances Zimmerman, and Virginia Valerio.

Rose was born in Benwood, West Virginia, and moved to Brevard County in 1964. She retired from EG&G/SGS in 2001 as a key contributor to the space program. Her passion was watching sports, the New England Patriots and the Orlando Magic were her favorites. She loved speaking with her nephew Jon Ferrari about his Philadelphia Eagles. Rose also enjoyed bingo and her gaming trips, including the penny arcades. There wasn't a card game Rose missed-black jack, gin, pinochle, hand and foot. She loved playing games with the family.

Friends will be received Monday, September 21, 2020 from 2:00 to 3:00pm with her Celebration of Life to follow at 3pm, at Wylie Baxley Funeral Home, 1360 North Courtenay Pkwy, Merritt Island, Florida, 32953
