Rose Marie Moffa

Mrs. Rose Marie Moffa, age 94 of RD 2, Box 80, Tyrone passed away peacefully at the Tyrone Hospital on Monday, October 8, 2007 at 4:57 a.m. after incurring a stroke on Saturday, October 6th. She was born January 22, 1913 in Tyrone, the daughter of Guiseppe and Salvadora Cannistraci Lombardo. She was the beloved wife of Joseph Moffa who passed away May 8, 1984. She is survived by her three sons and daughters-in-law Joseph N. and Heidi Moffa, Tyrone; John and Bonnie Moffa, Hartly, DE and James and Rose Ann Moffa, Medford, NJ. Most important to her was how very proud she was of her four grandchildren – Joey Moffa III (deceased), Lance Moffa, Troy Moffa, and Stephanie Moffa Tyburski. She was the dear sister of Antonetta Derewiany, Voorhees, NJ; Mary Redstreak (late Charles), Cherry Hill, NJ; Margaret Lombardo, Cherry Hill, NJ; Samuel Lombardo (Dorothy), Tyrone; Angelina Waite (late Herbert), Getzville, NY and Josephine (late Edward) Laczkowski, Tucson, AZ and the late Theodore P. (late Molly), State College; late Andrea Lombardo (late Jennie), Audubon, NJ; late Nina Magnotta (late Rocco), Audubon, NJ; late Joe Lombardo (Isabelle), Voorhees, NJ and the late Anna Laute (late William).
She had previously worked at the Reliance Manufacturing Company and for many years was a faithful and conscientious domestic for many residents in Tyrone. She was very well known for her knitting, crocheting and, most of all, Italian cooking and baking.
Rose will be sadly missed by her sons and daughters-in-law, granddaughter and grandsons. We will forever remember all the good times and get togethers we had. Words can describe a lot about a person: Here are just a few that we believe describe our mother – Nimble in body, mind and spirit, our mother was wise, funny, enthusiastic, feisty, independent, caring and loving…and very self giving. Her family often referred to her as the energizer bunny. We shall remember her for all those traits.
Funeral Mass for Rose M. Moffa will be Friday, October 12, 2007 at noon at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church with Father David Roesch as celebrant. Interment will follow in Oak Grove Cemetery. Friends may call at the Richard H. Searer Funeral Home Inc. on Friday from 10 a.m. until the time of the Mass.
