Rosanna Vassiliades, 84, of Malvern, Pa. passed away on Tuesday, May 12, 2020.

She was the daughter of the late Eugenia Sabia and Michael Sabia. She is survived by her husband Tom of 63 years, two sons Tom and John and grandchildren Lauren, Caroline, Tommy and Olivia. Rosanna was the CEO of the Vassiliades Family. She was a college graduate who first started to work as an executive secretary/assistant and then moved on to raise her family. She was a devoted and exceptional wife, mother and grandmother who soon became affectionally known to her grandchildren as Grandma Roses. She provided the necessary leadership for the family and together with her husband provided the family with the love, attention, management and guidance necessary to achieve their plans, wants and needs. A pillar of strength Rosanna was the most caring and unselfish person that anyone could ever be. Her unconditional love and devotion were always for her family and she represented everything that is beautiful in this world. Rosanna loved tennis and played the piano and did both exceptionally well. She enjoyed playing the works of Mozart and various others songs including “On the Beautiful Blue Danube” and “Doctor Zhivago.” Words cannot describe how wonderful Rosanna was and we all miss her very much. With eternal love, The Vassiliades Family.

We will miss our beautiful Aunt Rosanna and will cherish the memories we have of spending much of our youth at her home and our grandparents, hearing her wonderful laughter and feeling her enduring grace. We are saddened and shocked to hear of her passing. We will hold her loving memories forever in our hearts...The Sabia Girls...Laura, Elaine, Christine and Family...

I did not know Rosanna but just read her obituary in the DLN.

I was lead to pray for her to be welcomed in heaven next to the CEO of all of us.

Then I asked her to pray for me to be the CEO of my family the way she was to her family and that I provide for my family the way she provided hers.

I love tennis and took piano lessons:)

Beautiful words you wrote for Rosanna.
Peace be with you all.
