YOUNGSTOWN – Rose J. Mazerik peacefully went home to the Lord on Sept. 29, 2011, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born in Youngstown, the daughter of Pasquale and Josephine DeLuca.

Rose was a lifelong resident of the Youngstown area, graduating from South High School and working at St. Elizabeth Health Center and the former Livingston’s in downtown Youngstown.

She belonged to St. Patrick’s, St. Dominic’s and most recently, St. Charles’ parishes. Over the years, she participated in various parish ministries, including membership in St. Charles Ladies Guild.

She enjoyed shopping, walking and doting on her family, especially her grandchildren. Her favorite times were spent preparing for and hosting family gatherings. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend.

She is survived by her son, Stephen (Bernie); daughter, Rosemarie (Ken-deceased); grandchildren, Jessica Mazerik and husband, Drew Steigerwald, Christina, Michael and Nicole Mazerik and Troy (Deirdre), Mark and Darla Wilson; and great-grandchildren, Brandy and Blake Wilson.
