Rose  Mistretta
Mistretta, Rose (nee Cappellini) - August 14, 2018 - Passed away after a brief illness at the age of 90, surrounded by loved ones in her home. Beloved wife of the late Salvatore V. "Sal" Mistretta for 59 years. Dear mother of Margaret (Michael A.) Perhach, Mark V. (Barbara Piazza) Mistretta, Victor M. Mistretta, Michele M. (Paul MD) Chetham MD, Turiya Mistretta and the late Michael J. Mistretta. Cherished grandmother of Stephanie (John) Rittinger, Sarah Perhach, Michael T. Perhach, Rachel (Jarrid) Summers, Sarah Chetham, Michael J. Mistretta, Lia Mistretta and Baraka Mistretta. Dear sister of Evelyn (late Evan) McDonald and Mary Lou Cappellini. Also survived by nieces and nephews. The family will receive friends at the C. Mertz and Son Funeral Home Inc. 911 Englewood Ave. Sunday from 1 to 3 PM and 5 to 7 PM. Where funeral services will be held Monday at 9:00 AM and a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. John the Baptist Church (1085 Englewood Ave.) at 9:30 AM. Rose, born in 1927, grew up in the West Side of Buffalo. A 1945 graduate of Grover Cleveland HS, she excelled in academics, basketball and class leadership. She attended the Sisters of Charity School of Nursing as part of the Nurse Cadet Program. She was the 1948 Nursing Class President and an outstanding student. There she developed a lifelong circle of dear friends. After graduating in 1948, she worked in NY City & Los Angeles before returning to Sisters as a Clinical Instructor & Labor & Delivery Nurse. She was praised by the many thousands she helped birth as an outstanding nurse with deep warmth and compassion. She retired from Nursing in 1993 after 45 years of dedicated service. In her retirement years, Rose and Sal were devoted gardeners and elegant ball room dancers. Rose loved her many adventures and travels with Sal, family and friends. She also volunteered tirelessly at Sister's Hospital, the Marillac Guild and St. John the Baptist Church. Active and independent throughout her life, she leaves a legacy of love, beauty and contribution that will endure forever in our hearts and minds. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Rose's memory to St. John the Baptist Church or St. Luke's Mission of Mercy.
