Rosemary was born in Brooklyn, NY on October 16, 1953. At age 2 she and her family moved to Queens Village where she lived in the same house for over 50 years. She attended special education classes and the Queens Occupational Training Center. Following that, she worked in a sheltered workshop until she moved with her mother, Grace, to Omaha in 2007.

Rosemary loved bowling and bingo. She was in several bowling leagues and had uncanny luck playing bingo.

She loved stuffed animals and had an extensive collection.

Most of all, she loved her family and always got excited about attending family gatherings.

She is survived by two loving brothers, their families, one aunt, and many cousins.

Rose and I have a 50 year history.....As a next door neighbor, I can say she was a "good" person , beloved friend and a darn good neighbor. What I will miss most is her laugh and perpetual smile... Those memories will last a lifetime.

Rosemary was so loved by all of her cousins. We are all so lucky to have each other and share so many wonderful memories. She was at so many of our family gatherings that she was a member of the Longaro family.
We all love you Rosemary and will miss you. Now its your time to soar with the angels. ❤

Rosemary was a special person. Like others have written, she was always happy, happy to see you, and remembered your name. How wonderful it is that is that she is with her parents now – although it is difficult for all to lose such a blessed person. How appropriate it is that her burial mass is in SS Joachim and Anne CHurch. Already in the care of blessed parents.

One thing is certain: Rosemary was dearly loved and returned that love in kind. That is something to cherish during this time of memory and sorrow.

Wishing the Verdirame and extended family peace and solace...

Such a sweet personality and loved everyone in her family. Always had a smile when greeting your arrival.

Rosemary was such a special part of all our family gatherings. And no matter what the occasion (probably because Nani had always done it before her), I could always count on her greeting me by my full name with a cheery "Hi James Gerard". She was a wonderful person and we will all miss her.

Dear Verdirame Family
I am sending my condolences and prayers to all of you during this difficult time.
I had the pleasure of meeting Rosemary back in the late 70’s and early 80’s at Holy Innocents program at Our Lady of Lourdes in Queens Village. I remember that Rosemary always had a smile and was so friendly with everyone involved with the program. She always remembered my first name. I saw her at a friends wedding in LI in the late 90’s and she was so excited to see everyone and just smiling ear to ear. May Rosemary Rest In Eternal Peace.

I am Andy and Marion Verdirame’s daughter, one of the Palmas. I remember Dan and Grace, always with Rosemary at their side, at many family parties. I was a teenager then, but do remember Rosemary because she was always smiling and yes, seemingly, always enjoying family.
My sincere condolences to her brothers and all who knew and loved her. I know she was welcomed with open arms into Heaven.
