Obituary of Rosina Scarano


LITTLE FALLS – Mrs. Rosina D. Scarano, age 95, of Little Falls, NY, passed away on Sunday March 18, 2018 at Valley Health Services, Herkimer, NY. Her family is very grateful for the care extended by Valley Health Services, especially mentioning One West.


Rosina was born on February 2, 1923 in Little Falls, a daughter of the late John and Caroline (Visconti) Casullo. She was educated in Little Falls schools. On November 9, 1947, Rosina was united in marriage with Frank Scarano in St. Joseph’s Church, Little Falls. Frank and Rosina provided each other with much love and comfort throughout their life together. Frank passed away December 25, 2002. Rosina retired from Salada Tea Co. in Little Falls. She was a devoted communicant of the Holy Family Parish, Little Falls. She belonged to the Church Rosary Society and sang in the Church Choir. Above all else, the effort that Rosina put into loving her family members could be considered a living success story. Some of her most memorable times were when she was surrounded by her children and grandchildren. Rosina selflessly gave her love to her entire family and will be dearly missed.


She is survived by three beloved sons, Philip Scarano and wife, Marchell, of Little Falls, John Scarano and his friend Carol, of Little Falls, and Rocco Scarano and wife, Peggy, of Little Falls, a loving daughter, Carolyn Clauss and husband, Joe, of Plattsburg; ten cherished grandchildren; Matt, Jonni, Jenny, Philip, Julie, Emily and John Scarano, Joseph, Rocco and Patrick Clauss; three cherished great-grandchildren, Tristan and Kendall Allen, and Henry O’Connell; and a sister-in-law, Jean Casullo of New Jersey. Also surviving are several nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her daughter-in-law, Debbie Scarano, two sisters, Ann Garro and Rocchina Smizzi, and four brothers, Philip, John, Carl, and Lawrence Casullo.


Funeral services will be held on Friday March 23. 2018 at 10 am from the Holy Family Parish, corner of E. Main and John Streets, Little Falls where her Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by Father Robert Weber. Rosina will be laid to rest in St. Mary's Cemetery, town of Herkimer following the Mass. Kindly consider remembrances in honor of Rosina either to Valley Health Services or to the Holy Family Parish. Envelopes may be obtained at the church service. We will honor Rosina’s wishes of no calling hours, and in all due respect her family will briefly greet friends after Mass prior to going to the cemetery.
