Rose "Rosa" Vaccaro, 71, long time resident of Rutherford, formerly of Toms River, passed away Thursday, August 27, 2020. Born in Reggio, Calabria, Italy to Giovanni and Maria (nee Pegna) Carrozza.

When Rosa was a young woman she and her family immigrated to the United States and lived in Toms River. She and her husband Antonio later settled in Rutherford where they remained for 48 years. Together they raised 4 children while enjoying 52 years of marriage. Rosa was very true to her faith. She worked
alongside Antonio in their Restaurant Paisanos Pizza while juggling children and a career in banking. She was a great cook and always loved her family around her for large meals on Sundays. She also took many trips with her family, especially to Lavallette and Seaside Park. She played Italian Cards and bingo. Spending time with her 7 grandchildren and playing games was most meaningful to Rosa. She will be missed dearly by her loving and close family.

Rosa leaves behind her devoted husband Antonio, her children; Connie & husband Alex Avila, Mary Vaccaro & wife Annette Giancaspro, Cynthia Vaccaro Aki, Joseph & wife Marina Vaccaro, grandchildren; Claudia Rose Avila, Miranda Avila, Marcello Avila, Eddie Aki, Nina Rose Aki, Joseph Vaccaro, Rosina Vaccaro, her brothers; Tony “Nino” Carrozza, Frank Carrozza, Dominic Carrozza and Giorgio Carrozza.
