Rosalie Marie Palazzo


February 7, 2018

Rosalie Marie Palazzo went peacefully surrounded by loved ones to be with our Lord on Friday, Feb 2, 2018, at the age of 86.

She was born on March 12, 1931, in Bronx, N.Y. She was the youngest child of Anthony and Carmella DeCarlo.

Since the day she was born, Rosalie was a vibrant and genuine soul. Growing up, she loved to dance. Throughout her childhood and teenage years, she danced alongside her brother, Peter, in numerous recitals and performances. She met the love of her life, Lawrence Palazzo, in 1952, while bowling, another one of her favorite hobbies. They fell deeply in love and got married on June 26, 1954.

They started their family shortly after, having their first child, Larraine, in April 1955. Two years later, they moved their family to Italy, and had their only son, Christopher, in 1959. They returned back to New York in 1962 and completed their family with Marisa (1962) and Gina (1964). 

Eventually, she and Doc settled in Glasgow in 1981. Here, she quickly became a loved and respected member of the community. She was a loyal member of the Soroptimist, Bible Study, PCCW and Hospital Guild. She enjoyed golf, bingo and playing the slot machines. She was an avid knitter who initiated the "Baby Hat" program at Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital.

Her greatest blessing in life was becoming a grandmother to four grandsons and one granddaughter. She was a proud and dedicated grandma, and her life became even more complete with the births of her two great-granddaughters in 2017.

She is preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Jack; and a son-in-law, Wade Brockmier. 

She is survived by her loving husband, Dr. Lawrence Palazzo; one brother, Peter DeCarlo and his wife, Mary; four children, Larraine Eiland and her husband, Pete, Chris Palazzo, Marisa Brockmier and Gina Hirsch and her husband, Dave; five grandchildren, Jeffrey Eiland, Emily Miller and her husband, Zach, Nick Hirsch and his wife, Sarah, Zack Hirsch and his wife, Chelsea, and Miles Palazzo; two great-grandchildren, Charlotte Miller and Rowan Hirsch; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Rosalie was loved by everyone who knew her and will be forever missed.

A vigil was held Tuesday, Feb. 6, at 6 p.m., at St. Raphael's Catholic Church. The Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Wednesday, Feb. 7, at 10 a.m. with a luncheon following at noon.

Bell Mortuary of Glasgow was in charge of the arrangements.
