Rose Mary Infantino, 88, formerly of the Bronx and Rye Brook, died on April 13th at Danbury Hospital from complications related to coronavirus. She was a resident of Maplewood of Newtown.
She was born in the Bronx in 1931 and raised in Washington Heights. When she was 15 years old, the family returned to the Bronx because her building was demolished by the collapse of a wall in the Disastrous Knickerbocker Ice Plant Fire in 1946 in which 36 people died. She was the eldest of three and the daughter of Italian immigrants, Antonio and Filomena Staiano. As a first-generation eldest child of the great depression she learned quickly how to work hard and take care of her family. She graduated from Baruch College, where she studied accounting and met her husband Robert Infantino with whom she shared 65 wonderful years of marriage. She went on to earn her master’s degree in Education at CUNY and a master’s degree in Guidance Counseling at Lehman College. She taught her children and grandchildren her incredible work ethic, how to look after one another, and how to find a bargain. She was also a woman of incredible decorum; she always wore beautiful outfits with matching jewelry and would never tell you her age. Rose Mary was lucky enough to travel all over the World. When she couldn’t travel, she used her iPhone to call and FaceTime with family every week.
Rose Mary worked for the NYC Board of Education as a teacher and guidance counselor at several schools and retired from Stevenson High School in 2001. She lived in the Bronx for many years with her husband and was active in the community and in St. Lucy's Church, Elementary School and Cardinal Spellman High School Parents’ Association. They enjoyed being members of Toastmasters and FIAME in the Bronx. In retirement Rose Mary and Robert moved to Rye Brook, NY where they were active members of the Rye Brook Senior Citizens Center and the Port Chester Senior Citizens Center where they both enjoyed bridge and Spanish classes while Rose Mary also enjoyed her painting and Middle Eastern dancing at the UFT Learning Center in the Bronx. Rose Mary was a parishioner of Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Port Chester where she was a lector for many years.
Rose Mary will be greatly missed by her loving husband of 65 years Robert, her son Anthony and wife Diane, her daughter Annemarie and husband Shane, and her 6 grandchildren, Bryan, Michael, Theresa, Lauren, Matthew and Brendan. She has many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends that will miss her dearly.
She was preceded in death by her two brothers Anthony and Joseph Staiano, her parents, and her son Joseph. Anyone wishing to share written memories is encouraged to write to Annemarie Murphy at 22 Woodcrest Ln, Danbury, CT 06810.
Services entrusted to Balsamo-Cordovano Funeral Home, 15 Church Street, Carmel, NY 10512. (845) 225-2144.
A private burial will be held at St. Raymond’s Cemetery in Bronx, NY. Due to the coronavirus restrictions, a Memorial Mass in celebration of her life for family and friends will be held at a future date.
