|(Friday - November
27, 2020) - Rose Marie Muraro (nee LaPorte), age 92, ended her life's
journey on Wednesday, November 25, in Norway, her birthplace.
Rose, the youngest of the Omer and Rosanna "LaPorte girls," was married
to Roy, who preceded her in death in 2010.
referred to as "Boots," Rose is now reunited with Roy, her parents, and
three older sisters: Marjorie Pientkewic, LaVerne Arnoldi and Eva
Her sixty-year marriage to Roy included homes both in
Norway, and in Milwaukee, where she enjoyed many roles in life -
seamstress, gardener, organist and singer, and devoted churchgoer. But
her favorite role was as a mom, where she gave the gift of life and love
to her four surviving children: Dennis (Deb) Muraro of Dousman,
Wisconsin, Mary (Dennis) O'Brien of Brookfield, Wisconsin, Kenneth
(Monica) Muraro of Waukesha, Wisconsin, Karen (Don) Freitag of
Cedarburg, Wisconsin; and grandchildren Stephanie Muraro Gust (Eric),
Ryan Muraro (Naomi) and Tyler Bersch (Nichole). Rose's sweet nature and
gentle soul shined through to everyone she met, which explains why she
will also be missed by brother-in-law Michael (Ann Marie) Muraro of
Norway; sisters-in-law Betty Stachowicz of Niagara, Rosalie Dallapiazza
of Norway, and Carol Muraro of Iron Mountain; many nieces and nephews;
and countless friends she made along the way.
Inspired by a line
from Rose's favorite hymn "On Eagle's Wings," she will continue to
"shine like the sun" in our hearts and memories.
wishes to thank the caring staff at Evergreen Meadows Assisted Living
for offering guidance, care, and loving compassion in Rose's final
years; and Becky Plotecher for being mom's companion.
family's request (due to the current health crisis), a private Mass of
Christian Burial will be celebrated.
Interment will follow at the
