Rose M. Vennarini, 95, of the Old Boston Section of Jenkins Township, passed away Saturday, July 20, 2019, in Wesley Village, Jenkins Township.
Born in Old Boston, she was the daughter of the late Primo and Elizabeth Pierelli Lussi.
Rose was a graduate of Jenkins Township High School. Her first job out of high school was a bookkeeper for Kaminski Brothers, Dupont. She later worked in the local garment industry and was a member of the ILGWU. She was a life-long member of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, now St. Joseph Marello Parish, Pittston.
A devout Catholic, Rose was an independent, strong and caring person with a compassionate soul, who always spoke her mind. She loved the New York Yankees, music, Steve Harvey, anything red, but most of all, her family. She was a fabulous cook and, undoubtedly, the best pancake maker in the world!
She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and aunt and will be truly missed.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Vennarini in 1976; infant son, Joseph Vennarini; son-in-law, Stanley Turkos, Jr.; brother, Angelo Lussi and sister, Mary Lussi Ferretti.
Surviving are her daughters, Renee Turkos, Duryea and Joy Missett and husband, George, Exeter; grandchildren, Tara Craig, Pittston Township, Tracey Latona, Duryea, Genna Missett and wife Laura, Baltimore, MD, and Dr. Ricky Clouser-Missett and wife Melissa, Boston, MA; great-grandchildren, Ross Anthony Latona and Alana Rose Craig; numerous nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to express a sincere thank you to Dr. Charles Manganiello and the staff of Wesley Village for the wonderful and compassionate care provided to Rose.
