  1. .I cried when you passed away. I cry today, still. Although I loved you, I couldn’t make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating. Hard working hands put to rest. God broke my heart to prove to me that he only takes the best.. – Anonymous Till we meet again my dear Rosie..may you rest in peace.

  2. A special lady who was easy to be friends with. She was cool under pressure, and a class act always when things got tough. I had the privilege of working with her for many years in the Hamden Police Dept. RIP my dear friend!!

  3. I knew Rose from the start of her career with the Town of Hamden as a telephone operator, then as a dispatcher for central Communications. She was a good worker and a better person. Never did she not have a smile on her face. R.I.P. Rosie

  4. Very sorry to hear of Rose’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with Rose at central dispatch, she was a friend and house mother to all. Always quick to put others first and in your place if needed. Don’t think there’s anyone who knew Rose who won’t remember her fondly. No doubt she’s in heaven rearranging things to her liking. May she rest in peace. Deepest Sympathy Linda Connors
