Rosie was raised in Warsaw, and later resided in Belmont. During WW II, she moved to Buffalo to work in a war plant. Often we expressed how lucky we were to have known our own “Rosie the Riveter”. After the war; she returned to Belmont, married Peter and raised their family. They resided in St. Cloud, Minnesota for a short time, and in Duke Center, PA for past few years. Rosie was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. Her sense of humor lit up the room. She was an excellent homemaker and loved cooking for friends and family. She was an avid reader and loved playing cards. Rosie was known for "cheating" and somehow always got away with it! Her faith was very important to her. She loved being with her friends in Belmont, golfing, going for coffee or lunch. She was a member of the Holy Family Altar Society, the Jones Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Twig, and the American Legion Auxiliary. She was always willing to help someone in need.

  1. A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Please accept our condolences, she will not be forgotten.

  2. One life touches so many others. Rosie Presutti touched all of us, and we are the better for it. Years in the cafeteria at BCS would never be quite as much fun or memorable without her. And her contributions to her family and the village of Belmont were prodigious. Rest in peace, dear lady.
