Rosemary “Rosie” Johnson Piasecki quietly and peacefully departed this world on August 27th during a powerful afternoon thunderstorm. She put up a brave battle against dementia and was able to leave us under her own terms with the help of Bristol Hospital’s Hospice team. She is survived by her loving husband of 59 years, Bob, as well as her sons and their spouses, Kevin & Julie and Steven & Kristi. She also leaves her grand puppies, Luna, Chase and Roscoe. Rosemary was predeceased by her sister Kathleen Gurga. In her 77 years of life, she touched many lives through her involvement in the Bristol community, including Greene-Hills school, NYC bus tours, Forestville Little League, Step Saver, Friendly’s Restaurant, and St. Matthew’s church. However, her family will forever remember her for the compassion, nurturing and love that she selflessly gave to her “boys” every day of her life. Beyond ensuring the well-being of her husband and children on a daily basis, she spearheaded her sons’ college educations, as well as many memorable family trips, events, and reunions. She was always ready to join family and friends for adventures and outings. Rose quietly showed us how to be the best version of ourselves, whether it be as a daughter, a wife, a mother, or just as a friend. As Dad noted, “she was such a beautiful person.” We are grateful that we were able to support Rose in her last hours of peaceful rest before she was ready to bid us farewell. We are eternally grateful for the time we had with her. She will be missed more than words can say.
