A Funeral Service will take place in the Funeral Home, following the visitation, at 3:15 p.m. Interment will be private.

Rose was born to Angelo & Rosaria (Riccio) DiMonte, immigrants from Italy, who began their life in East Boston. Rose was one of eleven children. When Rose was just a young girl the family later settled in Revere. She attended Revere Public Schools. Rose raised her children in Revere. Rose was well known to all of the children in the neighborhood. She was known as the “Pizza Lady” because when she made pizza she literally fed all the neighborhood kids with an endless amount of homemade pizza. She was like a second mother to most kids in the neighborhood. No kid would ever go without anything, whether if it was a meal, a coat, or simply love. She was everyone’s mother. She was a comfort in the neighborhood to the other parents having a woman like Rose, knowing there was someone else watching out for their child. Whenever a kid came by, Rose always had a piece of gum, candy, popsicle or whatever she had, she offered it to the kids. Rose returned to work once her children were of age and in school. She worked at various local restaurants, whether as a waitress or in the kitchen. She was a fabulous cook and had an even better personality. As she grew older, she became known as “The Grandmother with the Swing on the Tree”, and of course any kid who wanted to swing was more than welcome and then given some type of treat. Her love & affection for children was profound. She was also a feisty woman who always told you exactly what was on her mind. Her honesty certainly was one of the other factors that made her truly a genuine person.

She is the loving mother of Susan A. Scoppa of Revere, Donna M. Scoppa of Andover, Carlene M. Festa of Reading & Carl Festa & his late wife Brenda of Everett. Cherished grandmother of David J. Gleeson of Reading, Sarah R. Santangelo of Reading & Shayla R. Festa of Everett. Dear sister of Anna Rotondo of Saugus, Lena Spagnola, Gloria Ferullo and the late Jean Barrett, Pasquale DiMonte, Antonetta Lea, Marie DiMonte, Joseph, George & Anthony DiMonte.
