Rose Teti (née Viscusi), beloved wife of the late Robert Teti, cherished mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed peacefully surrounded by the love she created on Tuesday, June 29, 2021 in Calabash, NC. 

Beautiful Rose was born October 29, 1928 to her loving parents, the late John and Philomena (née Cioppa) Viscusi. Rose was the youngest of five children. She was born, raised, and lived most of her life in the great city of Philadelphia, PA. She was a loving and dedicated wife to her husband Bob, and an adored mother to her two daughters, Sharon and Marianne. Rose was a wonderful cook, especially with all her favorite Italian dishes that her family enjoyed and devoured for years. In Rose and Bob’s Golden Years, they resided at Gloria Dei Plaza in Newtown, PA. Everyone who knew Rose felt her genuine love for them. Her bright light touched countless family members, dear friends, and neighbors. All who know her have only the highest regards and beautiful sentiments to share.

Rose is survived by her daughter, Sharon Rafferty and son-in-law James Rafferty; her daughter, Marianne Kirincich; her grandchildren, Jason and Barbara Rafferty, Nicole Tucker, Kirsten Kirincich, and Courtney and James Devlin; her great-grandchildren, Liam and Alanna Rafferty, Grey Tucker, and Jacob Devlin; and many nieces and nephews.
