She was a life-long Yonkers resident, and was the beloved wife of Ralph Damiano, whom she married in 1955. He survives her. Together they raised their family in Yonkers.
Rosetta is survived by her three sons whom she cherished, Mark (Paulette), Ralph (Sylvia) and Damian (Patricia). She is also survived by her grandchildren, Joseph (Lisa), Mark (Chrissi), Ralph, Scott, Dillon, and Paul, as well as her great grandchildren, Ella, Joseph, Jr., Max, & Camryn.

Rosetta is predeceased by her sisters and brothers, Marian Terlizzi, Nancy Nunziato, Theresa Dellasorte, Cecilia Salvi, James Birrittella, Bernard Birrittella, Peter Birrittella, and Carmine Birrittella.
Rosetta had an amazing green thumb and was very proud of her garden, growing delicious tomatoes and beautiful flowers, among other things. Rosetta also was also an excellent baker and cook. Anyone who was lucky enough to receive her annual Easter Breads or delicious cookies around the holidays was always in for a special treat. Rosetta also loved playing cards regularly with "the girls," with whom she had close long-lasting friendships. Most importantly, Rosetta most dearly loved her entire family. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren brought her great pride and joy. The entire family will miss her dearly, but take comfort knowing the small, strong, and mighty matriarch of our family is at peace and will rest in the comfort of our Lord.
