With a mixture of joy for her and sadness at their loss, the children of Rose Ascolese announce that on October 25, 2018, at the age of 90, she went to her eternal home. Rose is now in the presence of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ - in a place that knows no sorrow or pain and where all tears have been wiped away.
Rose Ascolese nee Perrotti, daughter of John and Pasqualina Perrotti of Bernardsville, NJ, was born on July 21, 1928. She married Ralph Ascolese of Raritan NJ and together they raised three children. She was a loving mother who emphasized a Christ centered life, diligence in schoolwork and fostered in them an interest in literature and music. She and Ralph were founding members of Evangel Chapel Somerville, NJ – a membership which was central in their lives and provided them many close and lasting friendships. They were generous supporters of various outreaches and ministries.
Rose was pre-deceased by her husband, her parents, a sister, Mary, and her brothers Anthony, James and Patrick. She is survived by a sister, Carmella and her husband Gregory Ruffa, her children Charles Ascolese and his wife Dorie, Laura and Salvatore Giglio, Cynthia Houser, 4 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at Georges Road Baptist Church, October 30th at 1:00 PM followed by an interment service at Cedar Hill Cemetery E. Millstone, NJ.
