Carmela Rosati (Sciarrillo), 88, long time resident of East Hanover, passed away peacefully on May 24, 2021.
Carmela was a loving caregiver to all of her children, her children's friends, family members and grandchildren. No one left Carmela's house without eating at least one meal and, possibly, a snack. Even when she was very sick, her first words when someone entered the house were, "Have something to eat". She was a member of Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Church in East Hanover. She was a member of the Rosary Society for many years. She also enjoyed gardening and sewing. Her greatest love,' however, was her family. Her most joyous times were when all of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were gathered near her. Her presence will truly be missed at all family gatherings. She will always be remembered.
